Final Days! Don't Wait! Canvas Remnants

Scarlet Thread will only be around for a few more days. After this weekend, the Catalog will be deactivated. Don't miss out on getting some last-minute deals on threads, thread packs, and now canvas remnants.

Check out the assorted sizes and colors we have in the Canvas/Congress Remnants section. These are nice-sized pieces of 18-ct mono canvas, some large enough to accommodate a 17" x 17" project. We even have a half-yard piece of Santa Fe Sage! Choose from Aquamarina, Black, Eggshell, Leventeen Blue, Mystical Midnight (hand-dyed), Pewter, Rose Blush, Sandstone, and Santa Fe Sage. In Congress Cloth, we have a few pieces in Sand, Dusty Blue, and Pewter.

Scarlet Thread has enjoyed being your one-stop source for all your canvaswork needs. Sara Leigh will continue with It's a Stitchy Thing, providing news and photos of what's new and exciting in the counted canvas world. Stay tuned.

Playing With Thread

I've been working away at updating the inventory with threads that were unavailable before because they were kit components. The problem is, I keep getting distracted by all the possibilities for combining them. A good problem to have.

New items in the Catalog are Bouclé, Burmilana, Caron Impressions, Kreinik (still working on this), assorted Rainbow Gallery varieties, and Soie d'Alger. There's more to come! But not that much. You can access each category through the left side menu. Some of these are very limited in number of colors and number of skeins available.

As for the distractions, I've come up with some more thread packs. I seemed to have my wild side going for most of these. I think you'll see what I mean.

Deeper Discounts and New Thread Packs

As we get closer to the time when Scarlet Thread will be shutting down, the discounts just get better! Today, we're offering 40% off your total purchase! That's right, even sale items. Everything must go! Just use the promotion code 40%OFF at checkout.

While I've been sorting through the leftover threads and beads from all the kits we've put together, I've been inspired to tweak them a bit to create something new. I'm calling them Inspirations. You can use them as they are, or maybe tweak them a bit from your own stash. They're all in our new Bead and Thread Packs section of the Catalog. The quantities of each are limited, 1 or 2 of each. Here are some pictures to delight and excite you!

 Aren't they gorgeous? I'd like to keep them all to myself, but they're all for you!

I'm constantly updating the thread inventory as I move things that were reserved for kits into the open stock, so be sure to check back in a day or two to see what else I've come up with. There may be more thread packs in the offing.
