In Threadville, you will find, as you might expect, lots and lots of thread. In my machine embroidery boutique, In Stitches, I sell embroidery thread. Across the street, my best friend, Haylee, sells sewing thread in her fabric shop, The Stash. Down the street at Batty About Quilts, Naomi, who is one of Haylee’s mothers (she has three, all of whom have more or less adopted me—does that mean I have four mothers?) sells all the thread you might need for piecing a quilt or sewing the top to the bottom, with batting between. Other Threadville shops specialize in yarn, notions, and home décor.
You can read about how Willow solves a murder in the latest Threadville Mystery, THREAD AND BURIED, available from these booksellers. Read the first chapter here.
Janet Bolin’s first Threadville Mystery, DIRE THREADS, was nominated for both an Agatha Award for Best First novel and for the 2012 Bony Blithe Award. The second in the series, THREADED FOR TROUBLE, was nominated for the 2013 Bony Blithe Award.
