Announcement   HAND DYED EMBROIDERY THREADS Perle cottons, cotton floss, silk perle, Kreinik #16 braid, Kreinik 1/16 ribbon, Kreinik #8 braid - hand dyed in original and bold vibrant colours. Stunning colour variations to inspire your creativity.

I started dyeing my threads from necessity as I live in an area with limited access to supplies. This seemed a natural progression after years of painting then dyeing fabric and surface design techniques for quilting. I am constantly experimenting with colour combinations generally introducing new colours seasonally and discontinuing colours depending on popularity. I make every effort to ensure colour fastness in my threads but regretfully as with any hand dyed product this cannot be guaranteed. Please remember to always check the "quantity" box to view how many skeins are available of each of the colour combinations.

I welcome comments and hope you enjoy your visit. To learn more about me and see how I use my threads you can visit my website at http://colourcomplements.com

I offer a Colour Complements newsletter where I introduce new products, announce discontinued products and SALES! If you wish to sign up you may do so on my blog page at http://colourcomplements.com/blog

About

Hand dyed threads to inspire your creativity!

Hand dyed embroidery threads! I painted for many years eventually progressing into surface design techniques on fabric for quilting. I became interested in hand embroidery about fifteen years ago and started dyeing my own threads for personal use at that time. I opened Colour Complements in 2012.

These days I divide my time between crazy quilting, canvas work, silk ribbon embroidery, stumpwork and dyeing threads. I LOVE experimenting with new and different colour combinations. I introduce new colour combinations throughout the year as I like to keep my colours ``fresh``.

I hope you enjoy your visit to my shop and please feel free to contact me with any questions. If it interests you to see how I use my threads or perhaps find out more about me, please visit my website at www.colourcomplements.com

I welcome you to sign up for my Colour Complements newsletter where I provide updates on products, introduce new products, discontinued products and announce sales. You may sign up on my blog at http://colourcomplements.com/blog.
