For almost 30 years, Sulky of America Co-founders, Joyce and Fred Drexler, have been insistent about maintaining the very highest quality with the 4,000 products that bear the Sulky label. According to Fred, “educating consumers has always been a top priority and our extremely strong focus on education through the years has caused Sulky to become the most recognized and asked-for name in decorative threads.”
Committed to quality, Sulky of America only uses raw rayon fibers made by ENKA in Obernburg, Germany. They have been tested and proven to be the very highest quality raw goods produced anywhere in the world.
Sulky also maintains a high community involvement presence. Fred is proud and honored to have had a 44-year involvement with Rotary International, being involved in hundreds of local community projects. Following Hurricane Andrew in 1992, Sulky invited sewers all over America to “Share their Stash” with Hurricane Andrew victims. Thousands of people ultimately did, which netted two full semi-trailer loads of sewing machines, fabric, patterns and every other imaginable sewing tool and supplies. Their caring ways continue to support community outreach.
At Road to California 2020 – 25th Anniversary Show, Sulkyis looking forward to introducing one of their newest thread lines – Filaine – to Road’s guests.
Filaine is a 12 wt. acrylic thread that comes in 129 colors.
It produces a stitch that mimics vintage handwork, with a nubby textured feel and appearance.
Sulky of America recently became a distributor of Organ Needles, a company founded 100 years ago in Tokyo, Japan. Did you know that all Japanese-made sewing machines (like Janome, Juki, Brother and Babylock) are “born” with Organ Needles?
After the original needles were used up, consumers had a hard time finding replacement ones. So, Organ Needles developed their exclusive Eco Packs for consumer use. These eco-friendly Eco Packs allow for easy visibility and reusable storage, providing a quick way to identify new and used needles by location in the pack.
Organ Needles offers a wide variety of needles to meet every sewing need.
