Nymoooo

I want to to tell you all about Nymo. Because it’s brilliant.

It’s super-strong, silky thread which is used for beading and bead embroidery. It’s great to work with, you can get it for about a quid off Ebay or at a craft or bead shop (Beadworks in London – handily situated near all the dance shops in Covent Garden!) and it comes in all the colours. I was stitching with ivory which I happened to have from embroidery, until my cat stole and hid it. I’m now waiting for an order of soft pink to come through the post.

I use it all the time to sew my elastics onto my flats.  When I got my pointe shoes (Oh-ho. More about that later.) and had to sew my ribbons and laccys I really didn’t fancy using dental floss. Maybe the best ballerinas in the world have minty-fresh pointe stitching, but use weird coated plastic stuff which I don’t even own when a specialist haberdashery product exists?!? Oh nono.
