My first order of Lizbeth thread was the first to arrive. I have never bought any Lizbeth before though I have tatted with it using thread that I received as gifts. BJ, the Sanguine Stitcher gave me a discount coupon from Handy Hands and I ordered these. These are part of my birthday present form BJ.
