SBQ: Blended Threads

Posted by Cyn | Posted in Needlework, SBQ | Posted on 06-05-2008


And another Stitching Blogger Question:

How do you handle blended threads? Do you kit the blends up before you
start a piece, or do you grab what colors you need and blend when the
need arises? If you kit up the blends beforehand, how do you store
them? Do you have another option for blends to share?

I can't remember the last time I did a piece that used blended threads. Obviously, I haven't gotten around to stitching anything by Teresa Wentzler 😉

When I've had to use them, I just blend them as the need arises. I keep most of my threads (DMC, definitely) on plastic bobbins, so when I start a project I gather all the colors required and put them on a metal ring. As I cut a length, I wind whatever I didn't use back on the bobbin for later use, to avoid waste.
