I was doing some surfing the other day looking for embroidery thread kits for my new embroidery friend. I couldn’t remember where I purchased a previous kit, so I just did a google on machine embroidery thread kits.
Up popped this site. I’ve never heard of Metro before, but I figured why not check out their wares. I was shocked when I saw that they currently have a sale going on.
See a few weeks ago I was making free standing lace heart shaped boxes. A small cone, I can only do 3 hearts. I figured if I plan on making a bunch of free standing lace items, I will need big cones. Wednesday I placed an order for a total of 8 big cones. Like I said, what the heck.
My purchase came today. I opened the box and was really surprised. I ordered all pale colors for some free standing lace purses, hankies, hearts and 3D items. Even though the threads are pale, they are really, really brilliant. Had to run upstairs and load some designs in my PR 600. I stitched out a purse in pale yellow. Beautiful… Next one, pale green. Wonderful… Stopped after that cause it was time to prepare dinner.
Lets just say this, these poly big cones are great. And the price of 2.25 each is a steal. Unfortunately they don’t have any in white, which I needed. The sheen of this thread is really, really nice.
Planning on placing another order. I forgot with the hearts I am making, I was suppose to buy 2 cones, so now that I like the product, I will buy more of the pink as well as some of the other colors they have. Take a stop at their site. If you end up buying some cones, let me know your opinion. Here is their site and they only take orders over the internet.
Mini Cones .75 cents each, 20 color kit $55.00, bobbins, two types – cardboard and magnetic (which I really like).
Like their site says: “Try it and see the difference”. I did and I like it! Click on the picture and you’ll be directed to the site.
