I’ve been wanting to show my Lecien Cosmo embroidery floss from Japan… to rave how wonderful it is. But I’ve had no place to say where to get it. Until now! The Cosmo floss is pure heaven. Now that I’m using Cosmo - I feel like all these years I’ve been driving an old Ford Pinto (with no A/C, crank windows and only an AM radio)… and now I’m driving the BMW (an X5 to be exact) of embroidery floss thanks to Cosmo. What Aurifil Mako is to thread - Cosmo is to floss. A gotta have. A must have.
I’m so excited that Joe & Roxie of ThimbleCreek are now carrying the entire Cosmo line! Oh happy day! You can visit their wonderful shop in Concord or contact them via phone or email. You can find a Cosmo color chart here (aka my shopping list).
Other floss now feels like burlap… Cosmos feels like silk.
Pulling strands is a snap - and never gets jumbled up and looking like the LA freeway system.
Glides like butter through fabric.
Feels like silk… but it’s 100% cotton.
It never frays or knots up on me - and I stitch with long strands (because I’m lazy like that).
The colors are rich and vibrant.
So soft you can’t help but pet it.
Candy made from cotton.
I’m so excited about ThimbleCreek now selling Cosmo, I thought how fun it would be to have a Cosmo give-away. So I got on the horn and asked my sweet friend Nireko from Lecien if she could send me a Cosmo goodie to give-away - and she not only sent me one goodie… she sent me four. FOUR! That means FOUR WINNERS!
So here’s the deal. Leave a comment between now and 10am PST on March 26th to enter - four lucky winners will win either a 4-pack of floss (that’s 48 skeins of Cosmo!) or a darling Petit Sampler kit (which is adorable Japanese sweetness).
To sweeten the deal… sign up for Joe’s amazing newsletter and give yourself a second chance comment. If you’re already receiving the ThimbleCreek newsletter… make a second comment as well. Be sure to say “I’m signed up” in your second comment! And if you’re thinking I’m going to win a toaster oven for getting you to sign up… I am! Just kidding. I love the TC news (Email Gazette), and it always makes me smile when I see it in my in-box - and I think it will make you smile too! Cosmo will make you smile. It will make your fingers smile. It will make your fabric smile.
