Our Favourite Colours Inspired by Winter

Calista Ngai

It’s nearly that magical time of year again! Frosty landscapes coated in powdery white, evergreens laden with sparkling icicles, and cozy homes shining with twinkling lights in the dark of night. For those who love winter (and for those who prefer to spend it hibernating under a warm quilt) we have a few favourite thread palettes perfect for finishing those holiday projects.

Snowflakes embroidered with Spotlite

One of our absolutely favourite threads to use during this season is Spotlite™, a 40wt rayon core metallic thread. Metallics are beautiful and reflect the shining theme of the holidays, making it a magnificent choice for winter-themed projects. While we offer Spotlite™ in 40 different colours, a simple way to achieve a gorgeous project is to choose a neutral palette of gold and silver threads and a brightly coloured fabric to embroider over. This allows for a pop of colour in your project without worrying about matching colours.

However if you like your threads to carry the colour in your project, we also offer colour coordinated tubes of Spotlite™ in 9 different colour themed sets, including a Christmas themed set. Spotlite is a gorgeous thread that can be used for embroidery, decorative quilting, built-in decorative stitches, thread painting, and 3D embellishment effects.

Speaking of themed sets, our 40wt rayon thread, Splendor, is available in packages with colours revolving around special themes. Included are Blue, Landscape, Christmas, Classic Christmas, and Country Christmas. These not only make great sets to easily get started on a project, but also make thoughtful gifts for the sewers and quilters in your life! Splendor is a versatile thread that can be used for machine embroidery, quilting built-in decorative stitches, machine quilting, rough edge appliqué, and even serging.

Warm browns and whites make a good contrasting combination for cute holiday creatures. Since they are already neutral tones, you can add little splashes of bright colours to liven it up without worrying whether or not the colours match!

With Love and Threads,
