Welcome to Roberta Varney's
Cool Threads Shop!
A warm "Hello and welcome to my shop." Thank you for visiting my website,
which always seems to be a work in progress.
Please pour some coffee or wine, and enjoy browsing through my website. You will find me to be very chatty at times, and I hate to be bored. So there is a lot to see here. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating!
<<<My husband took this candid shot while we were outside. He was taking pics of some of my machines, and turned the camera on me. I had just purchased a larger machine (biggest hoop) to tackle some larger designs.
Currently my website is not set up for sales. Most items shown here are for sale on Etsy, which is a website for small businesses. If you see something you love, and it isn't listed in one of my shops, please ask. I will gladly create a listing for you! My ETSY shops are listed below the slide show. For your convenience, there are banner 'links' to ETSY throughout my shop. The link is a large block that states "I sell on ETSY"; click on it to go to my main ETSY shop.
I put together a little slide show that highlights of many of my products. To pause slide show, move your mouse to bottom, center of pic and click on icon. More photos/designs are available to view under each tab (right of screen) Enjoy!
(NOTE: If you cannot see the slides, try using a different browser.)
If you want to know more about my business, tips on navigating through my site, or me, please scroll down and read the rest of my intro!
Cool Threads Shop: This is the name of my first ETSY shop, and it has many products listed that you see on my website. (All of the links on this website will direct you to this shop).
Hollyhock Frocks: TEMPORARILY CLOSED while I focus on digitizing. The second shop that I opened is exclusively for children's products. Everything listed in that shop is made with safety in mind and I follow strict federal guidelines that are required for all children's items. It is a very tiny shop, but I truly enjoy creating everything in it!
Cool Threads Digital: My third shop was started in October, 2018. Until 2018, all embroidery designs I used were purchased from a digitizer. A digitizer uses special software to transform art/text into a 'language' that an embroidery machine can read. Over several years, I learned to digitize, and now offer my own designs in this ETSY shop.
Thank you and please let me know if I can make something unique for you; I would be honored to have your business.
My business, Roberta Varney's Cool Threads Shop, has grown out of a hobby that simply "got out of control". I have been sewing for most of my life and I love to create a variety of items, as well as offer custom sewing and embroidery.
A quick way to see many of my products is to go into my main ETSY shop using the ETSY link/banner below. There you will find photos of many products, and by clicking on the photo, it will offer basic product details as well as ordering information. Not all of my products are listed there. I love variety; so I add and delete products to keep my shop interesting to you, my customer.
Also, please do not hesitate to contact me about anything on this site. I am the only one who sees the Contact Me notes and Custom Order Form; and I would love to hear from you. So, take a moment to introduce yourself and say "hi"; all feedback on the site is appreciated and kept confidental-for my eyes only. I will not share your information in any manner.
All requests are taken seriously. I can sew "pret near" anything, to quote a phrase from my grandmother; however, since I don't have a large shop, space is one constraint I must consider when accepting a new project. Usually, I work on smaller items; but ask. If I feel I can tackle a job, I will.
I pride myself with quality products and excellent customer service. I want my products to not only meet, but exceed your expectations. So, please, if you LOVE my products, please tell all your friends. If you are unhappy with any product, please tell me so I can work with you on a solution that suits both of us.
Again, thank you for visiting my website. Please be sure to share it with your friends!
Find me on Facebook too under Roberta Varney's Cool Threads Shop. I hope you enjoy my Facebook page. "LIKE" my Facebook page to see what is new! I often post new items there before posting them to ETSY. Currently I am offering a drawing for 2 pairs of embroidered earrings. The drawing will happen when I hit the milestone of 100 "LIKES". So find me, like me, and tell your friends about me!
PS: Please note that the "official" registered name of my shop is
"Roberta Varney's Cool Threads Shop." However, on my website, I took the liberty of using several shorter versions of the shop name. I had a preference for a shorter name, but didn't want to jump the hoops required for a fictitious shop name.
