some of the pearl cotton i have 'in stock' at the moment.
when i was taught to quilt last year, it was by my friend mary. she teaches hand quilting with pearl cotton. i like the machine quilted quilts as well, but i loooove hand quilting. mary introduced me to pearl cotton by valdani which has a beautiful assortment of colors and sizes. the cute little shop where i shop (sew to speak) has a small selection of choices which is usually all i need... but one of the quilts i made in the spring became an issue. i decided to start quilting with a color i already had. fine. no problem. until i ran out and no one around had the same color! what to do? i searched the internet to find someone who sold it AND who had the same color. turns out it wasn't as easy as it sounded. but, finally i found a great online store called snowflake memories. they had so many to choose from. and luckily i found a perfect match... and then i was able to finish my quilt. shoooo. that was a close call. so, if you love pearl cotton and/or hand quilting then definitely check out snowflake memories. They were great to work with and shipped it zippity-zip!
