I love Atlanta Thread & Supply. They have a lovely catalog and also a website and wonderful prices, good service, and great sales. I get my cone thread from them, Dual Duty in 6000 yd cones. They also sell Gutermann threads in 1100 yard spools for only $2.95, but if you buy more than 10 spools, the price goes down. Every once in awhile they have a sale with 25% off the order. Here’s what I got this time:
1100 yards goes a long long way. If you sew a lot like I do, it is really worth it to buy the thread in larger spools or cones. I am not affiliated with them in any way, but I do like to spread the word when I am happy with a business.
My younger daughter was visiting this weekend and gave her approval to two fabrics I had in the stash to be used for pencil skirts. One is a brown wool blend and the other is a black and white tweedy fabric. I went to the Joann sale today and used my coupon to buy some Bemberg lining which I have never used before. I have heard that this lining breathes better than other types, so decided to pay the extra price.
Hopefully, spring is right around the corner so soon it will be time to make some more Mexican peasant blouses. My inlaws are going to be having a party for their 65th (!) wedding anniversary this summer so I need to make myself something to wear to that. I want to be thinner by then, but am slow to start on that project. I think I’ll go do my exercises.
