If your local dealer doesn't carry the cotton or 60 wt. rayon thread, heavyweight film-type stabilizer such as Badgemaster and Ultra Solvy or other supplies needed for many of our lace designs, you can buy them online from

It is very important that you read the instructions and use the weight and type thread recommended for the designs you purchased. All threads above will not work with all our designs and the stabilizer recommended should be used for best results.
