An Open Note from DMC Thread Company

Dear Americans:

We're not really sure how to explain this phenomenon, but it seems that recently we have sold an unusually high amount of our #814 embroidery floss. While this pomegranate-coloured string has traditionally been a poor seller, it has flown off the shelves as of late leading to a crisis for embroiders. Until we solve this problem, we are encouraging people to plan their projects without the need for this colour.

Thank you,

CEO of DMC Thread Company

You're not kidding! I went to my local Michael's on Friday and they were sold out of the small ($0.26) skeins of #814. I splurged $1.39 for the larger size and became the proud owner of 27 yards of #814. After snipping my strand (9 inches, maybe), I passed the rest along to a friend and fellow blog-reader. Maybe that skein is working its way around the Washington DC area even as I write. What a great idea!

I hope so because I'm in the D.C. area and I want to see another string soon!
