WOO HOO!!!  I just had to update you about the new Cosmo Multi Work embroidery floss!  This is the stuff that is only 2 strands so you don't have to separate it.............. I started stitching on the new "Flight of Fancy" quilt last night.  This stuff is GREAT!  It's really smooth and the 2 strands don't seem to come apart.  I didn't have any tangle problems & it didn't fuzz, shed or break ( I use about a ..............hmmmmm............... 5 foot to 6 foot length of floss when I stitch.)  I think I'm going to be madly in love with this floss before I'm through stitching all 12 of these blocks!  I can't wait till we're able to get it in so that you can try it too... maybe you're lucky enough to have a shop in your area that is carrying it??  Oh, the French General fabric (it's a woven) is really easy to stitch through too..... Yup!  I'm definitely having a happy day!

That looks so great!!!! I can't wait to try it. I want some, and soon. Looks like it would be good for cross stitch, too! Oh joy!

I'm curious...when I google Cosmo embroidery floss, I get floss in a hank. Your showing thread on a spool??

Can't wait until you sell it and I can order some...

I have to find this. I've started using #12 perle cotton for some projects because I lose patience separating floss.

Thanks for the tip!

No one around carries it yet but maybe one day.

Are you going to be selling the mutli-work Cosmo floss? I want to use it to stitch my Winter Wonderland!

Would you provide us with a source for this Cosmo product? I haven't been able to identify one by on-line searching. Thx

Ooo, I want to try that floss! I'm going to have to see if they have a color conversion chart for the other brands!

I'm getting ready to make some dishtowels with red embroidery thread and I've seen an article that advises washing the red in vinegar to stabilize the color. Does the thread you are using require this?

Thanks!
