Online Auctions Yield Cross-stitch Bargains

Check the online auction sites - do a search for 'DMC' in the crafts category, and you'll find some sellers who'll let you choose the colours you want, and you'll get them for around 50 to 65 cents a skein. Or, shop around at online needlework shops in the USA - even with the postage to get the threads to Australia, it's cheaper to import them than to buy them from Australian shops (sad but true). For instance,http://ehandcrafts.com sells them for US$0.55 each, and this shop charges very reasonable rates for postage, often having a flat rate for international orders of just $2.25USD.
