    Default Looking for #3 DMC pearl cotton....

    For tying a quilt. (Don't see anywhere the Size 3 is available on balls, just skeins anymore.)
    There is a great price at Blitsy.com, a craft outlet. Anybody have any experience with them?

    http://blitsy.com/sku/BL011972?utm_s...6BUaAr1u8P8HAQ

    Their name is Blitsy and mine is Kitsie, so could be a good match?

    Thanks for any responses!

    No experience with Blitsy but that price is good. Herrschners carries DMC size 3 perle/pearl cotton in 294 colors but is $1.69 per 16.4 yard skein. I haven't ordered lately but they've been in business for decades!

    Thanks for your reply! All in all, I can purchase skeins locally. Unless I was buying dozens of them its not worth paying the freight no matter how inexpensive it is. Thank you anyway. Disappointed that it no longer comes in the ball (checked at DMC site). I love to tie quilts with it but one or two skeins is all I'll need for now.
