Sewing-related holidays are the best kind, aren’t they? Thread a Needle Day is OUR kind of holiday. To celebrate the essential tools of the trade that make our world go ’round, we have a fun contest and a special coupon, just for you!
Today we’re indulging all you cross stitchers with a little floss frenzy. Classic Colorworks makes lovely 100% cotton hand-dyed cross stitch floss that give your stitches subtle variegation. The floss come in a range of more than 200 colors, which is pretty amazing when you think about it!
Besides the beautiful floss, we love the expressive color names like Vanilla Custard, Pine Needles, Stepping Stones. With names like these, these fancy flosses are calling for some fun! A poetry contest is in order…
