Welcome to Threadmongers!

Welcome to everyone traveling here from the Quilters Anonymous 2021 Online Quilt Show!  

And welcome to everyone else!

I hope you enjoyed the fabulous quilts and I hope you are here because you love thread!

Threadmongers does not have a retail web site.  But you are encouraged to send me a list, via e'mail, of the threads you need and I will let you know what's in stock!  Just as I have been doing for the past 15 years as the Threadmonger, I carry the threads that quilters CRAVE for piecing, quilting, applique, embellishment, and fiber art!  Hundreds of color choices among 25 brands and 80 different products!



Prices are discounted from the manufacturer's suggested retail price.  I don't list them here but would be happy to send you details via e'mail. 

Feel free to send me questions and your list of needs to:  
judyjj@threadmongers.com 

There is a list on this page on the right hand sidebar of threads I carry.  If I am out of a certain thread you need I can order it!  

Right now I have a TON of 1300 meter spools of Aurifil in stock, as well as many of their 5900 meter cones.  

Lots of King Tut in cones and a good selection of spools. 

LOTS of Valdani pearl cotton in #8 and #12 sizes. 

Wonderfil threads such as Invisafil, Deco Bob, Konfetti, Fabulux, and Spotlite!

Glide in cones and spools!

I'll post more photos here of fun temptations for you so check back often! 

I sure miss being a vendor at our regional shows.  But I have lots of customers who order from me and who stop by my house in Sedro-Woolley and pick up what they need. 

For those of you who reached this page without visiting the QA show, here is the link!  https://qavqs.org/

Thanks for coming to see the Threadmonger and let's have a GREAT quilting 2021!

2021 - MY "SCHEDULE" AND THE QUILTERS ANONYMOUS SHOW

Thread fans and friends, 

We are still here and we are still quilting.  That's important right now - we are resilient and we know what to do when things get tough!  Be creative and generous.  Your reputation and legacy as quilters is so needed!

This is the time of year that I normally publish my quilt show schedule for the first six months.  All but one of the shows I look forward to are cancelled or suspended.  

So I'm going to do the same thing I did during 2020!  Enjoy meeting my customers' needs from my home and pushing my way through my fabric stash!  

Quilters Anonymous has developed a virtual show to replace their usual spectacular show at the Monroe fairgrounds.  They invite you to attend!  I know you all look forward to that one and this year it will be full of two years' worth of quilts!


March 12 to May 1, 2021

They also have a vendors' platform and I am on it.  So when you attend the show and roam around the vendors' postings, look for me!  

Here's the show link:  www.QAVQS.org 

If you want to shop in person, here in Sedro-Woolley, we will make arrangements.  I welcome all thread shoppers outside on my very large porch and we will wear masks, sanitize, and distance.   

If you want to order thread to be mailed, just let me know and I will work with you to identify what you want and mail your order directly. 

I don't have a retail web site.  I still have SO MUCH STOCK that I would do nothing but maintain the site, and I would rather quilt.  You can see the list of threads I typically have in the sidebar on the right and I can special order things for you. 

Here's one thing to think about; I can put 12 spools of Aurifil in the smallest USPS Priority Mail box.  So if you're shopping for Aurifil, go together with a friend or two, and pay postage once. 

I'm seeing an uptick in interest in the Wonderfil family of threads.  Invisafil, DecoBob, Master Quilter, Spagetti, Konfetti, Spotlite, Fabulux, Glamore, and others.  Ask about them!

Keep quilting!  I'm sure I'll "see" you at the Quilters Anonymous online show.  We have hope in 2021 that our ability to gather safely will be restored!  In the meantime, share your beautiful quilts virtually and inspire other quilters!

2020 - a year for staying home and quilting!

Out of adversity, opportunity arises!

Are you relishing the many quilting and fiber art accomplishments you had this year?  I hope so. 

I certainly am and I have lots to relish!

Quilts, totes, pillows, pillowcases, masks, Christmas stockings, and pet beds are on my list.  It's a GREAT feeling to have used up so much fabric! 

Are you out of thread yet?

Threadmongers is here for you.  Check out the list of fine threads in the frame on the right hand side of this page.  Let's get started on 2021 - so many ideas!

Thanks for your patronage, goodwill, and kindness this year.  Quilters save the world.

Welcome to everyone visiting from the Clark County Quilters' show!

Did you navigate here from www.quiltfestnw.org
 
The Clark County Quilters have designed an AMAZING virtual quilt show (and I REALLY mean that) for everyone to see online!  And they're leaving it up until at least December 31! 

When you visit, plan to take your time...don't rush...and come back often.  The web site has so much to see that you probably need to take a break occasionally!

If there was an in-person show this year I would be there, as would the rest of the fine vendors listed on their vendor tab.  But due to the pandemic, we are doing things differently, creatively, and wholeheartedly for the love of quilting. 


Threadmongers does not have a retail web site, but you are welcome to PM me here or on Facebook (look for Threadmongers) and tell me about your thread needs.  The Threadmonger is always here for you. 


For now, enjoy the Clark County Quilters' Quiltfest Northwest and you will see that they deserve all the accolades that they are getting for this fabulous concept show!
