Keith, email me your address through my profile and I'll pop a Valdani thread in the post for you. That way you don't have to leave the bench and take the risk that somebody else will take you place. :)

I have a few of the Valdani variegated, but always considered them hand sewing threads. They have wonderful colors

I have never heard of Valdani thread, but I googled it and there are numerous shops in the US that carry it. The closest one to me is about 2 hours away. I will try to get some and try it.

I haven't used Valdani thread extensively but I have used it to hand and machine quilt and really liked it for both. They have beautiful variegated colours.

I have not come across Valdani threads - you make me want to try them though... If I do try them and I do prefer them, I will report back in this thread. Or I'll just bring my samples to the bench... :)

Whilst I'm sitting next to the gorgeous Keith...... I also like Valdani threads. Some beautiful variegated ones in the range, and they are a little thicker so show up really well. I think they are made in Hungary, and are not as easy to get hold of as some other brands. Have you come across them, Keith?.................... Hey, stop pushing everybody! Plenty of space on the bench. Just be careful, I don't want anybody to fall over my 7 bowling balls. I lost them somewhere. :)

I'm bringing wood and tools, bench space seems to be getting tight, but we can always add an extension. ;)

I like all kinds of threads, even tangled ones. And I like to smile. It is especially good on days when you're working so very hard and having the same frustrating thing happen over and over and over again. Not that I am talking about anything I might be working on (CWQ). Not me! Well, maybe I am tangling. So sorry! Where is the smiley with tongue in cheek. :twisted:
