New Gloriana....

A new year
Lots of new colors
Gloriana has such a beautiful line of silks
We carry the complete line of 12 strand silk floss
Also in the Gloriana family:
Dutchess Silk
Princess Perle
Priness Perle petite
Silk Chenille
Silk Ribbon 4 -7 -13
Tudor Silk
These are available through us by special order.
You can read about all of these specialty threads on their web site:
  • 12-strand Silk Floss is a spun silk thread with silk's beauty, luster, and shine, but doesn't catch on your hands. The size of one strand is comparable to other stranded silks, such as Splendor, Soie Cristale, and Needlepoint Inc. Silk. Gloriana Silk is soft and remarkably easy to stitch with.

Be prepared - I have lots of ideas for blog posts.
It was quite a busy couple of months and my mind was scattered.
I appreciate all of your encouragement, or should I say threats, to get back to the blog.
I love keeping you up on the new items, ideas and family events.
