    My daughter and I would share the thread to make rag dolls and embroider which is something that she has wanted to do for a the past year now! We could make purses and so many other things that could illustrate the beautiful color of the threads we use. Definitely get ready for Valentines Day projects to make as well, then there is St. Patrick’s Day, then Easter,…etc. the holidays just all start pouring out again! WHAT CAN WE NOT DO WITH THEM?!?

    This is a first time oppurtunity to use Gutermann threads because in my city where i live i have never come across Gutermann threads, only local ones. So if i win, i shall use them first for making my dresses, then maybe cushion covers for my home and bags and for quilts also.
