As a teacher you often end up with extras of colors to make sure there aren't problems in kitting, you order the wrong number, you have mistakes in ordering, all kinds of reasons! Well that pile has built up and I need to find the silks another home as I need room.
These colors are limited, some are in the Cabinet of Curiosities collection, some just coordinate well with them. I am selling them at 20-40% off to you to make room for the caskets I need to store!
When packaging and making silk purls #4, laid down trim, scallop trim, and small laid down trim; there are always extra lengths that are cut off or lengths that aren't the set retail amount. They have built up to be too many that I can't use them all in my personal stitching and so I have made up some grab-bag amounts in color families for those who just need a little bit of something to decorate their work or want to try it before buying large amounts of the threads.
The packs contain more than 1 meter and in most cases close to 2 meters of lengths for the color family trims. For the Brights in the small laid down trim, the amount is closer to a meter total in the assortment.

The thicker thread needed for doing satin stitch work on whitework samplers is 35/2 linen thread by Bockens in 1/2 Blanc color.
Blue contact paper for backing the patterns for whitework samplers. The package is 5 sheets of 8" x 8", enough for a whole band sampler.
I have been cleaning my work area (so I can finish a casket) and I had piles of extras from packaging kits - often a few extra things get cut when using helpers. I have taken some and made them into assortments for those who don't want to buy big spools of things and just need an extra bit of glitter.

These are finishing kits for several of my published projects. The kit has the six die cut skirtex, batt and card forms needed to make any of these slippers for pieces I have published in the past. Sized for 32 count or 36 count. Under the Needlework Projects section of my website, www.thistle-threads.com are several slipper projects.
This is the last of the Crinkle Gimp. I had taken it off the market to save for the Harmony course and that is now all taken care of. This is the rest of the threads and we had decided that it was too hard to produce well to keep it in production, as much as we liked it.

These bundles are threads only and are for the students of the course only. The bundles are cumulative, meaning that if a thread spool was provided in Lesson 1-3 bundle and then used in later lessons, it is not duplicated as it is assumed that students have all the previous bundles. Purchases outside of the course students will be refunded.
If you are working this casket as a flat top, I suggest you purchase the threads needed independently to reduce excess cost for friezes you won't stitch.
