The Maire Curtis embroidery studio has created these unique hand embroiderers’ packs of the famous Madeira Sparkling thread. Madeira manufacture a stunning range of metallic threads and their sparkling metallic 40 range designed for sewing machines is great for hand embroidery. However, we all like to have a complete colour range in our stash but hand embroiderers are rarely going to need 200m reels, so we have created two lovely packs in the most popular colours. These are one of the most popular items at our workshops and generally sell out quickly. Our pack of fine Metallic threads are perfect for the Groovi Pergamano parchment embroidery designs featured on Hochanda and for prick and stitch card embroidery. Although the threads are fine, they are very strong and make excellent working threads for Tambour Beading / embroidery otherwise known as Luneville Embroidery or french Couture Beading. These threads are used in our felt stars embroidery kit. Each pack contains 10 x 20m (approx) cards of thread all supplied in our unique packaging for ease of storage and protection. Thread Thickness; 40 - Similar to that of sewing thread. Pack 1: Ruby, Magnolia, Antique Silver, Moonstone, Glamour Green, Peacock, Sapphire, Malachite, Twilight and Gold Dust. We offer these as separate packs or as a discounted double pack. Please see separate listing. These packs make great gifts for Birthdays, Mothers' Day and Christmas. We can even gift wrap them for you and enclose a tasteful appropriate hand written greetings card.
