Welcome to Colour Complements.
I specialize in hand-dyed embroidery threads in vibrant and unique colours.
I have always had a fascination with colour. I painted for many years eventually venturing into textiles and quilting. I started dyeing fabric for quilting which developed an interest in surface dyeing techniques. About fifteen years ago I became interested in crazy quilting. At the time I lived in an area with limited access to supplies, in particular a variety of threads. It seemed a natural progression to start dyeing my own so I did!
I opened Colour Complements on Etsy in late 2012 and my website shop in 2019. Products offered include cotton floss and three sizes of perle cottons. I also stock samplers, custom dyed thread kits and rayon ric rac. New products are introduced as they are sourced and depending on how I like stitching with them.
Colour Complements threads are dyed on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. I am constantly “experimenting” with colours to create original and sometimes unusual colour combinations. New collections of colours are introduced three times annually – spring, summer and fall.
I hope I inspire your creativity with vibrant colour.
