John Lewis Anchor thread clearance

by Inkysloth » Sun Aug 21, 2016 6:30 pm

Hi all,

Not sure this is a tip as such, but John Lewis on Oxford Street (and possibly others but I only went to the Oxford St branch) currently are selling all Anchor embroidery thread & tapestry wool for 10p
a skein.

I may have bought 250 skeins today... ahem. There were still plenty left when I paid :)

Best wishes all

Doesn't seem to be anything that I could find on line. :thinks: Lucky find though, I'm really envious as I use Anchor threads :tantrum:
Can't get them here in France.
:roll: Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional! :lol:

LONG LIVE PUFFINS! :whoop:

Hi Wendy,

Yes, I looked online too, but it looks like John Lewis only sell packs of their own embroidery threads.

I might be heading up town tomorrow anyway - if you wanted to DM me a list, I'd be happy to see if I could pick you some up!

Best wishes

:toast: That's so kind of you Robin. I have a full set plus extras of Anchor so I don't actually 'need' any at the moment....I was just envious of your good fortune.
Thank you for your generous offer though. Forum Buddies are :stars:
