Today Kreinik makes a variety of silk and metallic threads for needleworkers, crafters, scrapbookers, quilters, fiber artists, fly fishermen—even fashion houses—to express their creative selves. Over the 30+ years Kreinik has been in business, the company has proudly fed and nourished the crafts and creative industries. Kreinik threads are fun embellishments that can be used anywhere to make your life more colorful and expressive.
