One of my Favourite pets
While growing up in Mount Isa, I tried and enjoyed many crafts. During school holidays, I especially enjoyed visiting my Aunt Margaret, who is a professional dressmaker.
It wasn't until after I began a family that I found needlework an excellent way to relax and de-stress. Not that I had a lot of spare time with 2 baby boys within 13 months.
I have memberships with several guilds and enjoy attending many various groups, within these guilds, as my business takes me around Australia.
While talking with fellow needle worker, I was asked to make some of my items for them too. They encouraged me to sell at our Guild Craft Fair and thus Every Sewer Needs began.
Caron Watercolors is a 3ply hand-dyed pima cotton in variegated colors.
It has a silky sheen, especially when used with long, flat stitches. The strands can be separted to use one or more in the needle according to the pattern directions.
One strand is about the same weight as a #5 pearl cotton or six strands of cotton floss or one strand of persian wool.
Also good for Sashiko.
As a customer, I have found the service at Every Sewer Needs to be excellent. Great range of products.
Hi Cassandra. Thank you. My parcel arrived today and I’m thrilled. Thread collection is just as you described. Unpicker is perfect. As are the pens. Thank you for your wonderful service.
