New unopened thread kit by Bucilla for New Amsterdam king size quilt. This is thread kit number 0765.

Although it was sold to complete a New Amsterdam quilt, you could use this thread for any quilt that is to be embroidered in a single color.

Per package, the color of the thread is Ecru (a pale brown color but I would describe it as taupe) and there are 20 hanks of 54 yards each (that's a lot of thread!).

Item is from smoke free environment.

This is such a neat towel – I originally purchased it to embroider for my linen collection. Please see photo for details – the towel doesn’t require a lot of embroidery because the “private eye” is apparently invisible. Towel has original price tag of 39 cents from S.S. Kresge Co.
