An embroiderer of many years, Robyn Alexander appreciates the style and flair that unusual threads can add to your work. As the creator of Colour Streams Robyn delights in supplying an extensive range of colours - 50 variegated or overdyed colours in 4 thicknesses of silk embroidery thread and 3 widths of silk embroidery ribbons - to give that special something to your designs.
These colours are repeated in our rich hand dyed fabric supply of velvet, Habatai silk, crinkle silk chiffon, silk organza and pure wool felt. Fabrics for layering, applique , dimensional embroidery and of course crazy patchwork - there are colours and fabrics suited to almost any design and the only limit is your imagination.
Our range in thickness of hand-dyed silk threads give great opportunity to create incredible texture. Couple this with our range of hand-dyed fabrics, silk embroidery ribbon and the amazing range of embellishments, specialty threads, wool felting supplies and sequins to dye for, and you have the best range of embroidery supplies and textile art supplies.
Like the old adage, at Colour Streams we aim to "let the colour do the work" !
