One of the best things about my job is the treats I receive in the mail, often unexpectedly.  Recently that delight came in the form of tiny care packages filled with the loveliest colors of thread from fiber force, Rowan.  The company has teamed up with sewing world super stars, Kaffe Fasset and Amy Butler to create vibrant and luxurious thread collections, dyed to match their respective fabric lines.  For about $36 bucks, you can have Amy’s “Love” or “Soul Blossom”, or Kaffe’s “Circus” or “Stones” packs consisting of 9 colors (each) of the finest Egyptian Giza cotton thread!  Classic, gorgeous and brought to you by the creme de la creme of fiber designers; what could be better?

Kaffe Fasset’s & Amy Butler’s Custom Dyed Threads


Amy Butler’s “Love” Thread-Pack


I have to admit, I’m kind of partial to anything that Amy Butler designs and not just because I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing her for my book, Craft Corps.  I love her vintage-made-now sensibility reflected largely in her color choices which are always, just a step left of modern.


Love Colors L-R: Cool Water, Spearmint, Fresh Lime, Tea Leaf, Periwinkle, Melon, Rosebud & Wine.

“Circus” Thread-Pack


Kaffe Fasset holds a place on the throne in both the knitting and quilting worlds.  He’s a trusted veteran whose usage of color and placement have made him and icon in the industry.


Circus Colors L-R: Brick, Cinnamon, Red Rose, Lavender Blue, Amber, Spark Gold, Chartreuse & Tangerine

    This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

    I was reading some of your content on this website and I think this website is very instructive! Continue posting.
