A week and a half ago, I was at The Tatting Corner Tatting Workshop and snapped a couple of photos while there. This photo is of the wall of the shop that houses the all the thread choices of one kind of thread–LizBeth by Handy Hands. I thought I knew that there were ALOT of choices in color and size but when I saw ALL the choices in one spot I was amazed!
LizBeth thread is made in 5 different sizes: 3, 10, 20, 40 & 80
There are 96 solid colors and 83 multi (variegated) color in 4 of the sizes (all but Size 3) for a total of 189 color—-only 90 colors in Size 3
189 x 4 = 756
756 + 90 = 846
Thus there are 846 color/size thread choices in this one thread source!!!!
Can you imagine keeping that kind of inventory?!?!?
