1 2 3 stitch sent Anchor floss that was perfect. I received wonderful
service for 6 skeins of floss. And its cheaper than other shops.

I love working with Anchor over DMC. You can really tell the difference. No
shop around sells it now and actually my favorite shop is a knitting shop
now. My DH found a new shop where an old one closed but they don't have
Anchor either. I had almost every color. I must have packed it away or
something since I couldn't find it. But that is because I have bags boxes
and bins of stitching stuff. One of these days I am going to finish a
project.

Glad to hear it. I've preferred Anchor for many years now - they seem to
have a wider range of color graduations, and I like the feel of it. A
shop
I used in Albuquerque in the 90s had a piece they'd stitched in both DMC
and
again in Anchor. The pieces sat on top of the floss cabinets - and
stitchers could look at them, and then choose which floss they preferred!
DMC is more common here, but I've kind of stuck with my Anchor bias,
though
of course I have plenty of DMC, as well.

I use them all the time for something I want, that my LNS doesn't
have...there service is EXCELLENT. I have put an order in on Sunday, had
an email from Joanne Sunday evening, and she had it mailed Monday.

She has quite a fan club!

Did you have a good summer? I noticed you didn't get into the ng
much. Let me know when you're ready for the onslaught of jokes
again!
