We ship most order via the US Postal Services and delivery have improved. International shipping is resuming to most countries, but mail is still suspended to some counties due Covid-19. See restrictions HERE.
Prices of supplies have been going up. Cost of transportation has also been going up... and some supplies have been really hard to get or are getting discontinued. We are doing our best to keep your favorite supplies available and to keep you informed.
Have gratitude for each moment. Namaste, thank you, merci beaucoup! - Marion
This 100% filament 2-ply silk thread was designed originally for hand stitching, Temari balls embroidery, and other traditional Japanese designs. This is a high quality filament or reeled silk thread, perfect for many applications.
Just added - A larger collection of TierraCast buttons now all on the same page. These buttons are made in the USA out of lead and cadmium free pewter. I used to carry just a few, but their quality is exceptional and they have gorgeous finishes. These buttons can be relied upon for their quality and consistency.
Many finishes are available from antique brass, copper, fine silver to 22k gold plate formulated to match 18k gold.
From one of my customer: "I am looking for storage with compartments that will hold my C-Lon spools and was hoping you could give me any suggestions of a container that would work. Right now they are in little bags everywhere and I have finally decided having them all in one place would be very helpful."
This clear plastic box holds 12 spools of the standard C-Lon Bead Cord Tex 210 or 12 spools of C-Lon Tex 400 Bead Cord.
Beside these boxes, I have a few recommendations in a 2013 post HERE. I keep part of my personal stock on wood spool racks hanging on the wall by my jewelry desk. I keep others in drawers stored in small cardboard boxes that hold 8 spools, and some in these plastic storage boxes.
I originally got these plastic boxes with 6 compartments to hold bobbins of C-Lon Bead Thread Size D and AA and have them available for purchase on the C-Lon Bead Thread pages HERE. They hold up to 48 bobbins. I also use them to hold many other small thing around my studio. The empty boxes are on sale for $5.00 each for a limited time. Get them while you can to store the C-Lon spools you already have on hand.
