Which Colour Thread?

The Sewing Workshop at 13 Rosebank Road in Avondale has to be unique in all of New Zealand (if not further afield). A living museum of all things needlecraft, be it manual stitching or modern machinery, and detail. Cheerfully and knowledgeably presided over by John.

I remembered visiting the place a looong time ago when Mrs H was doing a fair bit of sewing etc for the kids.

  1. All those spools of thread remind me of my mother. She did embroidery for a long time, so she’d often buy those little packets of bright coloured thread.
