This is a great way to receive popular fabric collections as soon as they are available. Pre-ordered fabric will be shipped as soon as it arrives. If ordering additional fabrics that are available now, all fabrics will be held until this fabric collection arrives. If currently available fabric is needed sooner, it must be ordered separately. These arrival times are estimates from our fabric distributor and not guaranteed delivery dates. If you have any questions regarding the status of your order, please let us know.

0.5oz pot of "Karma" Sew Fine Thread Gloss. A blend of the best grapefruit and bergamot fragrance oils, to lighten your mood and promote well-being. Infuse positivity into each stitch!
No more tangled, knotted or static-y threads while you're hand-sewing!
About Sew Fine Thread Gloss:
Sew Fine Thread Gloss is made with locally sourced beeswax that has NOT been chemically processed. It is handmade in a variety of scents (as well as a natural beeswax/honey scent) in small batches just outside Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is a natural light amber color (as it should be) – those white beeswaxes have been bleached or have had clay added to make it white. The beeswax I source is one step away from the hive – filtered once to separate it from the honey and any leftover hive particles. Each pot contains 0.5oz of thread gloss.
How to Use:
Simply thread your needle, and lay the thread over the tin. Apply pressure with your thumb and pull the thread across the top of the wax. Repeat if needed.
What is Thread Gloss?
For generations, sewists and tailors everywhere have been using beeswax as a natural thread conditioner to give them smooth and tangle-free quilting and hand-stitching. It also helps to provide additional strength to natural threads such as cotton and silk, as well as to help prevent thread fraying.
