...i have never really used silk thread. probably because i just never knew much about it. these new adventures with silk have really opened up a lot of possibility in my work. not just from an artistic point of view...nope, i also have a few new eyes.
...i am playing with a really special silk thread, soie et . wow. what do i love about this thread?
well i love the sheen, i love the smoothness, i love the strength, and then i love the fact that it is a three ply and it separates easily so i can use one, 2 or 3 strands. i love that is goes into the needle's eye so easily and doesn't fray at the end. i love love love the color range, so soft and well blended. i am amazed at how it glides through the fabric, silk or any other (almost silently!) and how it makes me want to slow down...
but most of all, i love that it is everything that i was told it would be. that it is a product worth buying and it comes with the support and the word of the person who sells it. i got it through from maggie backman of the silk experience. and i am so happy to know her and hope to meet her soon. why? because she knows what she is talking about, loves silk and her business is motivated by education. and she values my opinion. isn't that refreshing? thank you maggie for a wonderful product, a wonderful experience, and the time spent considering what that means.
as time goes on, we must realize the importance of respect in the scheme of community. how dependent we are each other's integrity and knowledge... be it in personal life, or in business. it is a shame to see how this has been degraded by greed. how it seems that , in business in general, the motivation is deceit, hiding information and truth, and tricking the customer into buying, rather than educating the consumer to appreciate quality and relationship.
