I had a chance to hand over my 3 pieces to Kreinik and then ended up going back and talking to Doug and Dena for a lot of the time I was there. They are such lovely people and have the most wonderful threads. I love sewing with them, and for anyone liking a bit of glitz in their work, these threads are perfect.
Here is Dena standing in front of some of the amazing threads on display.
I could have spent hours looking at all the colours and varieties of thread. Oh yes, I did!!!
I loved this Flash in a Tube. Made for fly-fishing, it serves a much more useful purpose for the textile enthusiast! A review for this is coming in WOWs June issue.
These non-stick patches are fabulous. They are cut to a perfect size for a Clover iron. A lot of irons nowadays are Teflon coated, but not the Clover irons, so although you can get into small spaces with it, the metal surface can get sticky and coated with fusibles. This prevents all that. I'm going to put mine on just as soon as I have cleaned off all the muck from the last 10 years...
On some of the other stands, I picked up some Melt-It Powder from WOW Embossing Powders. There were amazing things being done with this powder by Tania Ahmed, and I'll be having a go myself in the forthcoming WOW. I also watched a demo by Lisa Pavelka on her new product Magic-Glos, a new UV-cured resin product. It is applied directly, without the mixing that IceResin needs, so I will be looking out for that product.
