Stef Francis – Space Dyed Threads and Yarns

Much of my work incorporates hand quilting and stitching. Which means using as many gorgeous threads as possible.

Years ago, while wandering around the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandria Palace in London, I came across an array of bright colours. Stef Francis’ booth was utterly eye-catching. After nearly an hour of gathering, holding, feeling and gazing, several skeins of space dyed cotton came home with me to America. They hold a special place in my thread stash.

Any time I attended a show in England I would look for Stef’s booth and augment my collection – which is now a decent size!

Not only does she create mouth-watering yarns but she puts together kits. Everything comes in the kit: the fabric, threads, beads, sequins, and template.

This is Floral Fantasia – such lovely bright colours.

Not only does she sell lovely things but she creates her own artwork.

This is Flamenco. It is created with silk rods and gold leaf and hand stitched on silk noil.
