Valdani Threads Have Arrived!

I'm so excited!
The Valdani Threads have finally arrived!
I have read great things about these threads and Kaaren swears by them so I ordered them and they arrived just this afternoon. Woo-HOO!
Still packed as you can see, I will have them posted sometime tomorrow.
If you are making the Wool Crazy quilt you'll definitely want to give these a try... I can't wait to try them myself! B=)

I love stitching with Valdani. Are these size 8 as in JoAnn's book or size 12 like Primitive Gatherings used?

So is this for hand sewing or is it for something like to use with machines?

I went to a guild meeting touting how important thread is depending on your project and was wondering what made these so special?

Kaaren said...

These threads are the greatest, gals and if Brenda listened to what I've experienced, I'm hoping they will be size 12.

These threads are strong and durable and don't fray as does regular floss. Nor do they knot as much. Because of this, and because of the colors, they are perect for wool on wool or wool on cotton applique.

My order will be placed as soon as you're good to go, Brenda. Woo hoo!

I ♥ Valdani thread! I use them for wool and they are beautiful. Slightly variegated, don't have to separate, silky-smooth...they're just a pleasure to work with!
