The website is back online as of late Friday evening. We are still tracking down some missing files that need to uploaded so if you notice something missing, just drop us an e-mail, which is back online as well.
Our system for both our e-mail and website (including the online catalog) are down for emergency maintenance. You can access our searchable thread and fabric databases by using the link on the left side of the blog page for Alternate access. We hope to have the system up soon. You can always contact us at our alternate gmail.com address or call us during store hours. We appreciate your patience.
Update Feb 22nd - Our e-mail and webserver system was hacked so it has all been taken offline until we can clean it up and move to a new system. We have set up e-mail through Google Apps so that part is working again. And we have set it up so that www.needlestack.com is redirected here to the blog for now. None of the underlying pages will work but at least you'll know what's up with the status. It'll be a couple of days before we have the website and online catalog back up and running but we'll post a note when that happens. For now, you can use the the alternate links on the left for portions of the online catalog.
Page 2 has the list of goldwork threads. For the Passing Threads you can either use MET371 and MET380, which we call Gold Wire and Silver Wire (Access Commodities) and are $4.75/spool. Or you can use the precious metal threads Smooth Fine #4 Gilt ($30/spool) and Smooth Fine #4 Silver ($25/spool). You need one spool of gold and one of silver in whichever type you choose.
You also need Lizerine (also called Lizardine), which we have available in #1, (Melinda has indicated will be an acceptable substitute). We are not able to get size #16 or #18 spangles, but they are optional and you only need 1 size. We can get Size 17 (Size A) in Gold.
The items we carry can be ordered through our online catalog by clicking on the links above. Or you can call the shop if you need additional help choosing your supplies.
