Chris offered to help and we spread the boxes out on the dining room table One and a half hours later there are four boxes with all the DMC numbers in and 5 or 6 boxes of spares... wow I had no idea I had so many!
While I was teaching lacemaking I went most summers to the USA to teach and would search out the best places to buy these threads and would never pay more than 5 for a dollar, and sometimes if I was lucky get 8 for a dollar. I remember the girls at the tills would have to put each one through separately and the bills would be as long as toilet rolls!
What an investment 5 or 8 for a dollar [ a dollar was about 45 pence ] and now the DMC threads sell for 68p EACH in England.
