Beautiful Thread

A few weeks ago I received a press release that Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett had teamed together with Rowan and had come up with a new product. Considering how much I love both designers, I asked for a press kit. I had only expected something like yarn or fabric swatches, but was totally surprised that two boxes of gorgeous thread arrived in my mailbox last week. This new line of 100% cotton thread complements Amy’s current Love and Soul Blossom‘s line and Kaffe’s Stones and Circus collection. I’ve had the chance to sew with it over the past week and it is fabulous – the colors are vivid, they blend beautifully, and my machine loves it (there’s no lint flying off)!
Besides matching your fabric perfectly, why should you use quality thread? Here’s a great article on the difference between the ‘bargain’ spools and high quality brands. Now I need to get my hands on some Soul Blossoms fabric and thread…. I am so in love with the prints from this collection – it may be time to re-do the sewing room in some new fabrics!

    I have always bought quality threads in common colors (white, black, bone, red) for projects that needed to really hold up, and bought cheaper thread for projects that weren’t going to be subjected to very much stress/use (serger thread being the exception–nothing but metrosene for it). I never thought about it hurting my sewing machine though. 🙁 Now I’m going to have to decide whether to go through and trash all of my C&C thread…..

    After a week of fashion shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, there are few trends that stand out, among them: pale tones and sexy Christian Louboutin Shoes.
    These open-toed booties from Nicole Miller’s Spring 2011 collection are a good example of spring’s pale palette.
    After four seasons of subdued shopping by luxury buyers, looks for spring were dominated by white, nude and other neutral colors, which gave the clothes on the runway a softer, lighter look.
    It was a real shift from recent shows, where designers had picked darker colors that seemed to reflect the gloomy mood of the economy.
    This trend even extended to the fingertips with a peachy-nude-putty-colored nail polish worn by models in the Marc Jacob show and a manicure of beige polish, with a thin coral arc applied by celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi at Prabal Gurung’s runway show.
    Overall, many of the looks for spring were uncomplicated and versatile, which should help these clothes make the transition from the runway to the stores as retail buyers remain selective in their purchases.
    What was wild? The Christian Louboutin Shoes-both on and off the runway. (You have to see for yourself. Look at our slideshow.)
    It stands to reason. Consumers can only shop their closets for so long. Eventually, they have to start buying again, but they will look for pieces that will work with what they already own (hence the neutrals) and that will make a fresh new statement (cue the shoes.)
