I wanted to share with you the company where I purchased my embroidery threads. The site is strandedcotton and they sell DMC thread. they are able to sell it at a reduced price because they wind the thread from large spools and therefore don't have a fancy (unwanted) wrapper around them. The more you buy, the cheaper they work out...more reason to treat yourself to a box full (to look at and admire, rather than use)!
The only problem that I can see is that they post out 1st class :( ........order now if you want them by xmas....next year!
