Clover Cord Maker

This is just a quick post as whilst I was on holiday my first post as a Minerva Crafts blogger went live. Minerva Crafts is based over in Lancashire, not that far away, but they have a big on line store selling lots of different types of fabric and all sorts of crafty stuff.

As most of you know I like making cords from embroidery thread to trim my cross-stitch smalls, I’ve always made it by hooking a double thread over my spare spool holder on my sewing machine and twisting it with a pencil from the other end before folding it in half to spring into a cord. When Minerva gave me the chance to try out a Clover Handy Thread Twister I jumped at the opportunity, it was great, in fact the last smalls I showed you had cords made with the Handy Twister, much easier, quicker and nicer than my usual attempt…Lizzie Kate Cross-stitch

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Weaving supply stores sell a wood and metal tool called a fringe twister that works the same way. Very useful!
