Welcome to Colour Complements! I specialize in hand dyed embroidery threads – perle cottons, floss, silk, Kreinik 1/16″ ribbon and Kreinik #8 braid.
I have always been fascinated with colour and colour combinations. I painted for many years eventually venturing into textiles/quilting which led to an interest in dyeing fabric and experimenting with surface design techniques. Over recent years I became interested in hand embroidery specifically crazy quilting and canvas work. It seemed a natural progression to start dyeing my own threads.
I opened Colour Complements in September of 2012. I dye my threads in my studio located on the Sunshine Coast outside of Vancouver, British Columbia. I am constantly “experimenting” with colours to create original and unusual colour variations.
I hope I inspire your creativity with vibrant colour. Thank you for visiting.
