There are over 40 different needlework threads in this unique collection, Fabrics, Threads and some Bits 'n Pieces. Everything is hand-painted with a unique technique that is used exclusively by House of Textile Arts.
The Painter's Glory shine in strong colors, Painters Pastels complement the collection with ultra-fine shades. The special paint-dyeing technique, which is only used by House of Textile Arts for needlework threads, allows Glory and Pastels to grow together to form unbelievable color areas that look like impressionistic paintings. No color resents the other's radiance, on the contrary, all of them complement each other to a always surprising whole, all merge into beautiful new color compositions.
Textile design, that's fire, passion, pure joy. Embroidery and Needlepoint, quilting, knitting, crocheting, weaving, felting, lace making, pasamentery and all other textile techniques - all this is pure sensual pleasure. The special effects that can be achieved with the individual gradients of the Painters Glory and the gaudy shades of the Painters Pastels, have inspired 1995 hand workers all over the world.
World-famous textile artists can no longer keep their fingers off our materials: Judith Baker Montano, Sue Spargo or Dale from The Thread Studio down under use our threads just as much for traditional work as they do for their individual artworks.

On our own behalf - WE are looking for YOU
You love textile design and do not consider needlework to be an indispensable relic from great-grandmother's times. You can imagine becoming independent in this area. You know that in a small business everyone has to be able to do everything, including commercial knowledge, marketing, web design, computer skills and much more, and that doesn't scare you. You are not tied to a specific location and also a little bit keen to travel. Passion burns so strongly in you that the whole problem that self employment in this area means elicits an “I want and can do it”? Then click the button. Perhaps you will find right here what you have been looking for.
