I keep getting waylaid by things I need to look up, or do like my online check-in for my flight tomorrow ---and then I check email.
Well, then lets just check facebook while we are here too because there might be something important in there –right? RIGHT?!
I stumbled upon something I had put in the back of my mind – Hadassah, one of our readers had posted a very cool 200th Anniversary for Coats & Clark’s thread timeline!
It’s awesome. Seriously.
For instance --- Did you know?
The story of the cotton thread industry began in the town of Paisley, Scotland where weavers had begun to reproduce the rare Kashmir shawls of India at greatly reduced prices. Napoléon's blockade of Great Britain stopped imported supplies, including silk, which was necessary for the shawl industry in Paisley.
Look! Shiny Pictures!

I really should be packing but ----I can’t resist this…
Here – go check it out for YOURSELF HERE! It’s very cool. Really.
Back to it!
