Welcome to Paint-Box Threads, the home of artisan hand dyed threads for embroiderers, quilters, fibre artists and crafters. While hugely popular with hand sewers, both our mercerised cotton and pure spun silk can also be used through a sewing machine, making them a beautiful and versatile must have for any stock cupboard. 

Our impressive palette of colours range from the rich and jewel-like to the soft and sophisticated. All are hand dyed in Britain by Zoe Acketts, who lovingly mixes every single colour so that each one is just right and adds that little something special.

So, take a look and enjoy what we have to offer!
