There’s a shop that has been here since our first stint in 2002. I wasn’t a quilter back then, but I did go and check it out. 15 years later it is still there and has all the DMC threads you could desire! Since I already bought most of the colors at a different shop, the reason I needed to go there yesterday was to buy the boxes to put the threads in… it is the only shop in the country, as far as I know, that sells them.
When you see something here in the shops that you want, you need to buy it. You can’t say, I’ll buy one, and get another next week… because you could come back next week and it’s gone. For good. Or for a very long time. There were four DMC thread boxes on the shelves – I took them all 🙂
When I got home, I noticed one of them was broken…
I could take it back and they would refund me the money… but if they don’t have any more in stock it means I am one box down. So I am keeping it because I need it…
Of course I picked up a few other things as you can see in the first pic. I NEEDED some pinking sheers, so I got them. They had my favorite hoops, so they came home too..
And little embroidery scissors are always handy, right?!
The DMC Perle threads are for a free workshop Nora and I are hosting at the shop…. it was dark inside the DMC shop, so when I got home I discovered that instead of four whites, I had an assortment of white and cream 🙂
Oh well… I’m sure I’ll use them sometime!
It’s weekend here.. I need to prepare for the workshop on Sunday… I wonder if the doggies can help?
Hmmm… maybe not… 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone!
