When you are looking for a great thread to work with, for a variety of craft possibilities, Valdani might be a solution!
Valdani, is wonderful for Embroidery, Crochet, Knitting, Irish lace and of course Romanian Point Lace.
This company is based in Canada and threads are produced in Romania. Va pup Romania! ( I kiss you Romania) I am always exited to find out that something that has a lot of quality is produced in my home country! Proud moment!
Valdani is great because it has so many threads to offer, in great colours and the quality of each section, being, silk, cotton, wool, etc is amazing.
I will be creating some jewellery pieces using the Valdani, color 12 JP7 and color 8 P8 thread. Both sample thread feel great on the skin and in the hands to work with as well has a great soft shine and the colours are divine.
I was using a vintage crochet hook from JMRA ( 1.5mm) lace making hook to create the Romanian Point Lace cord. The thread was wonderful to work and it was easy to create the RPL cord.
Watch the video below and comment if you have some experience with Valdani, or you would like to ask some questions that I did not cover in the video or blog post.
I am not paid by Valdani, I simple love to introduce new products when it comes to Romanian Point Lace or to people who always wanted to try this brand out.
The quality of Valdani is wonderful and you pay a certain price for quality, great quality.
I love the idea that you can pick variety of threads for crochet, knit, embroidery,quilting, etc…. I can recommend the Perle Cotton as well as the Silk Floss and the new collection sets.
Have you used Valdani threads before, if yes please let me know how you like and what you made!
So if you never worked with Valdani before, feel free to try it out! You will not regret it!
