The Thread Exchange has literally millions of spools of thread, every kind and every color imaginable. (Local bookbinders: they carry waxed linen and other bookbinding threads, the kind we can hardly find around here!) The prices are wonderful. They de-spool their enormous spools into smaller spools. The very kind woman who helped us showed us a large bin of partial spools--actually the leftovers from de-spooling-- and invited us to fill a cardboard box with the colors we wanted in the weight of thread we needed. She sold us the boxful for a single digit price. Above are our spools! We also ordered a few complete medium-sized spools that we can pick up tomorrow. You can find out about about this great business at www.thethreadexchange.com and order on line. Asheville people call 800-915-2320 for business hours and location!
