“Here at Kreinik, we’re all about thread. It is a family-owned business that started in Jerry and Estelle Kreinik’s home in early 1970s. Estelle was a needleworker, who basically wanted access to more interesting threads. So they started researching, buying, then making them.
“Kreinik makes a variety of silk and metallic threads for needleworkers, crafters, scrapbookers, quilters, fiber artists, fly fishermen—even fashion houses—to express their creative selves. So we pretty much always have thread on the brain. It’s how we look at the world.
“Some people call it string, some call it a fiber, we tend to call the thread by braids and ribbons because that’s how they are made. But any way you call them, Kreinik threads are fun embellishments that can be used anywhere to make your life more colorful and expressive. Kreinik continues to deliver on a promised commitment: offer quality, affordable products to inspire your handmade creations.”
