Awesome Ebay Deal.....
WOW, what a load of thread!!!! I got all this with shipping for under $10.00 Tons of thread, 2 zippers (Lord only knows what I'll do with zippers, ewwww) and some elastic (I could use that and add some to some of my current pants, lol) all packed in a nice OLD tin. This tin, and some of the thread I would bet is older than me. ;) However, most of the thread is brand new. Huge fat rolls, small skinny rolls. I love thread. That's why I wanted to share it all with you.
Seems like a great buy. I may be wrong, but I think I had a quilt teacher tell me that if I'm using thread that is very old, not to use it in quilted things that will be washed a lot because the thread may break during repeated washings. So...you might want to be careful about using any that seems extremely old. Nice, though, to have a good selection of thread for handwork!ReplyDelete
Now that's a bunch of tread!!! Good buy!ReplyDelete
I love thread too. I especially love old wooden spools of thread!ReplyDelete
Hey thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment! I get very excited when someone leaves me a comment. (I should probably try and get out a bit more!) I love all those threads. Doesn't it just make your mouth water? They look so delicious. (Told ya I need to get out more!) I havent really made a proper quilt before but want to give one a go. So I will pop by and see what you are up to. Cheers, Liz :)ReplyDelete
