Default Eterna Silk Floss

Hi,

I used to read this group on a daily basis, but haven't visited in many, many years. I lost my job (twice!!), found a new job, then retired a few years ago. Unfortunately, due to shoulder, back, and neck problems I haven't stitched much since then. So, I'm purging my stash.

Does anyone remember the Eterna Silk Floss?? I have the entire collection and was wondering if anyone remembers how much it cost. I'm getting some stuff ready to donate to Good Will, and was curious as to how much I could claim on next year's taxes. Any help is appreciated.

I have been knitting over the past few years, but only for a short time each day due to the above-mentioned problems. I do so wish I could stitch again, as I have soooo many UFOs, as I'm sure all of you do, that I'd love to complete.

I remember many of the names that still post here, and was sorry to hear about the passing of Jim Cripwell. I always enjoyed his posts and hearing about his projects.

Anyway, greetings to all from Phoenix, Arizona. I'll check back in a few days to see if anyone remembers these silk threads. Until then, happy stitching!

Cheryl

I loved the Eterna silks but I believe ultimately they were swallowed
up by another company at the time many stitchy places suffered When
I knew I wasn't going to use them, I donated to my local needlework
guild and they were much appreciated.

I expect you will remember Lucille in Florida? She died some years
ago now but her album is still up at rctnp.

Hey Cheryl. Before you purge everything, you may want to read my post about stitching while disabled. You might still be able to stitch in some capacity with a few modifications!

That said, I'm also disabled and had to give up certain kinds of crafts altogether, like knitting and crocheting. I've also given up a lot of my bigger needlework pieces because I can't commit to that many hours of stitching when I'm in so much upper body pain. I do still enjoy stitching on a smaller scale and on a more limited basis, and I've reduced my stash to patterns I simple *have* to stitch. Any pattern I purchased that doesn't absolutely sing to me when I get around to actually sewing it, I donate to charity.

Good luck with your journey forward, whether you keep stitching or not!

Hi Violet,

Thanks for telling me your story and for the link. My conditions are due to walking with crutches for most of my life. Now that I've gotten older, it seems it takes longer to recover from exericise or a fall. I will try some of your tips to see if they help relieve the aches and pains. My problem is, I don't want to stop once I get going!!

I have not purged everything, but have certainly pared down my stash. There are a few patterns that I won't give up, and I still have one very large UFO that I may try to work on.

Anyway, thanks again for the tips, and stay well.

Cheryl
