Machine Embroidery
An old book

It's good to have friends.

My friend, Mary, visited  The Nest Community Centre, here in Brisbane and came upon all these threads that were for sale.  So, she bought me a small bag full.

"These cost $50.00, do you think they are worth that much money?" she said as she handed them to me.

They are worth a whole heap of money!!  About $550.00 Australian retail value.  What a find!

There were these Caron threads.

This Thrift shop is a bit out of the way but they appear to have some great stock.

Paper pattern  and partially completed garments with patterns and fabrics at cheap prices.

I am going to have to investigate this place.  Oh, that looks like wool on those back shelves.
