Kreinik Threads

Many moons ago I used to design and sell kits with silks (Pearsalls - now sadly deceased) and gold threads (Kreinik - very much alive http://www.kreinik.com).

Out of the blue Kreinik got back in touch and asked if I still used the threads, well, what could be more appropriate…… with the HARES? (Remember them?)

Look what came in the post from the wonderful Dena.

Opening the box….

I spent yesterday sorting out the ones to use to create my hares..... I was like a kid in a sweet shop.
(Minus the calories)

Kreinik really do produce some wonderful threads in many colours and various widths.
They are much easier to use than the traditional goldwork kit but still have the glitter and a bit of bling that I love.

Life is getting better (these threads really cheered me up) and I’m grabbing some time in the studio, the green dress is progressing and I promise to take some photos for you today.


  1. Wow lucky you. Wonderful colours. Hope to see what you do with them.

  2. So many shiny colors!
