Gütermann Agreman Gimp Buttonhole Thread
« on: January 23, 2020, 03:41:09 AM »
According to Jeffery Diduch, unfortunately, Gütermann Agreman Gimp Buttonhole Thread is no longer made. He asks on his blog where in the world a similar gimp can be found. https://robertjeffery.us/tuttofatto.../save-the-buttonholes/

Does anyone have a good source for a similar gimp?

Thanks

Bobbie

You can buy it from Kenton Trimmings. That's where I've bought it.

Seems now it's sold in 1-10 metres. Whereas I previously got an entire reel.

You can still buy reels from B & B, but they only seem to have a few colours now (mostly in very large reels, which I don't recall seeing before), whereas they used to have dozens in 100m reels...

Oh, and the link the Jeffery's blog seems to be broken... The correct link is here: https://robertjeffery.us/tuttofattoamano/save-the-buttonholes/

I only have black and grey anyway. I bought some 10m reels in a few other colours (blue, maroon, dark green) which I found at a warehouse, but apart from some of the blue I've barely used those.

I'll likely just buy black and grey again when I need to. Good to know they can be found at B&B.
