• Pick Our Favorite Threads

    When you are shopping for a canvas on our website, you will notice an option to pick threads. The choices are Silk/Silk Blends, Cotton, Wool/Wool Blends or Pick Our Favorites. A lot of times people ask, “what does pick our favorites mean?” Hopefully this will help explain!
