How cool – Scandinavian Stitches came to Philadelphia today for “Finns and Swedes in America since 1638” Celebration at Penn’s Landing. I met Lynda and got her permission to blog this photo. And, I picked up this Christmas Bag with the Nordic Hearts design.

The single-ply, cotton threads are very interesting. They are called Danish Flower Threads. You can feel the roundness of them especially when you feel a single-ply DMC thread. Read all about them at http://www.scandinavianstitches.com/thread.php?nav=thread And, if it doesn’t knot as they say, that’ll be very cool!

Gosh–to be an outdoor vendor with threads etc is sure a surprise. Nothing like that would ever happen around herebut we live out in the country of small towns etc and not enough population to go around for all hobbies crafts etc.

Wasn’t flower thread around once before or am I thinking of some other thread. Thought it was ‘gone’

Thank you so much for sharing. I sure like your blogs.

She came from Conneticut for this Finnish and Swedish festival! And, the threads have been around since 1929 according to her website. And, thanks – good to hear from you!
