Introducing Gentle Art Sampler Threads in 10 yards. I have added 10 yards Gentle Art Sampler threads version in addition to the 5 yards Gentle art Sampler Threads. I only have the 10 yards version in over 50 the most popular colors.

Let take a look at the math of the saving.....

Regular price of a 5 yards skein of Gentle art is $1.90, so 10 yard will cost you $3.80 ($1.90 x 2). Now let look at the 10 yards skein, regular price is $3.00, Anita's web site has them on sale for $2.60. The saving is about 31%.

($3.80 - $2.60)= $1.20

$1.20 divided by $3.80 is 31.5%

I have added Bohin French Needles size 26 and 28 in Bulk (25 and 50 needles). They are exceptional needles. If you have not tried them yet, you should. So far they are the best needles I have ever used, the needle makes my stitching coming out more evenly. I also sell them in individual packs as well. I carry John James Regular and Petite needles in bulk as well.
