    Hi Sarah,

    Just wanted to know the difference between floss and embroidery thread as a lot of western websites mention only floss. Can we substitute one for the other? And is floss available in India? I live in Mumbai.

    I had been facing some technical problem for some time due to which I just became slow (or rather lazy) to post a new tutorial page. Now, I have found a temporary solution (a cheat way) to post my pages. Yaay! So, here is a tutorial, after ages…..
    Thanks for all the patience, and sorry for the delay!
