Welcome to Limestone Threads!

As of June 30, 2015 I retired from my full time job.  That career gave me the ability to start two businesses- BLS designs ( my hand tailored purses and totes) and Limestone Threads.  In the past I have sold my purses and totes at craft shows in Central New York.  As fun as that was, my focus was to have a fabric store with quality quilters cottons, notions and patterns.  That is Limestone Threads!  You can find me here-online, and at Quilt Shows and Retreats.
As you might guess from the fabrics you find here, I love bright, colorful fabric, which is so different from the colors I wear!  Hopefully, you will find fabric you love here.  I offer quilting fabric, purse hardware, purse patterns  and patterns for typical quilting projects.

Please enjoy your self while looking through Limestone Threads.
