Announcing our Kickstarter!


Hey! Good Morning and congratulations on surviving February, the worst month of the year. No argument.

Today we're launching our new kickstarter campaign. We're raising funds to internalize the production of thread gloss, the product I launched last month that RAPIDLY sold out. And I say "we" because my husband is getting involved in the production and packaging of thread gloss, making this an official family business!

Support the Kickstarter HERE and read on for more details--including the rewards you'll receive if you back this project.


About

After the successful launch of Ponderosa Thread Gloss' three debut blends, we want to grow and provide you with even more scents.

This fundraiser will allow us to purchase materials to create thread gloss in house, including a glass double boiler, bulk local beeswax, bulk free trade coconut oil, essential oils, bulk jars, packaging, and if we meet our goal we might even buy our own label printer.

WHAT IS THREAD GLOSS?

thread gloss is a specially formulated wax and oil blend that coats your thread to prevent tangles, fraying, and brittleness. Think of it as a deep conditioner for your thread and embroidery floss.


WHY DO I NEED IT?

Have you ever had to cut your thread short in the middle of your groove because there was a gnarly knot? Using thread gloss helps prevent tangles and knots, taking away all of the frustration of handwork.

WHAT CRAFTS DO I WANT TO USE IT FOR?

Anything that you're dealing with cotton thread-- hand embroidery, hand quilting, cross-stitch, english paper piecing, applique, repairing clothes, whatever. Simply drag your thread across the gloss pot after threading your needle, applying slight pressure on the thread with your thumb, while pulling with your other hand.




HOW IS THIS PRODUCT MADE?

I work with a local manufacturer to produce this supreme quality thread gloss with all natural ingredients. Produced in small batches.

You can learn more about my production partner Olivia and her company, OlyBella here.

In the future, Paige Anderson Home Goods + Design will be producing it in-house.



WHAT SCENTS ARE AVAILABLE?

Hippie Blend: Contains Beeswax, Coconut Oil, and Frankincense Essential Oil, smells like your childhood visits to the Food Co-op.

Vacay Blend: Contains Beeswax, Coconut Oil, and Coconut Essential Oil, smells like a tropical vacation.

No Frills Blend: Contains White Beeswax and Coconut Oil, unscented, boring.

upcoming: Santa Fe Blend: Contains Beeswax, coconut oil, prickly pear essential oil, lime essential oil, smells like a margarita on a terra cotta patio.

upcoming: Olympia Blend: Contains Beeswax, coconut oil, lavender essential oil, smells like the Sequim lavender festival.








if there is a scent you want to see, let me know! We produce this product in small batches to ensure quality, so only a few scents are available at a time.

SHIPPING

y’all, it costs me $4.60 to ship these little babies. If I offered free shipping on this item like I do with everything else, I would be seriously losing money— I wouldn’t even get the production cost back. If the shipping costs less than what you paid, I’ll refund the overage, of course. Ships internationally.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?

--You can use thread gloss on any thread except for silk and nylon. For best results, stick to cotton and cotton-polyester blends. I haven't used thread gloss on yarn. You're welcome to use this product however you want, let me know how it works so I can update this section!

--You're also going to want to store in a cool, dry place. Don't even think about leaving it in the sun! For external use only-- it's totally chill if you get some on your hands when applying to the thread-- just don't eat it. I mean, you'd probably be fine since thread gloss is made with all natural ingredients... but don't.

CAN I ORDER THIS WHOLESALE FOR MY RETAIL LOCATION?

yes yes YES you can!! We have an amazing wholesale rate with a minimum quantity of only 50. Please send me an email at hello@thewildsweetpea.com and I will work with you to provide you with an estimated turnaround time. Free shipping on all USA wholesale orders!
