Madeira’s Shades of Green

LACONIA, N.H.—Embroidery thread and supplies distributor Madeira USA launches a year-long campaign to keep embroiderers aware of its commitment to the environment. Beyond the company’s sound eco-friendly practices at the point of manufacturing, Madeira USA is committed to taking every step it can to assure it is leading the way in reusing, recycling, rethinking and reducing waste, it reports. Madeira encourages embroiderers to properly dispose of empty spool and cone cores. Log onto to learn where plastic cores will be accepted for recycling in the area.

A collectible, commemorative spool shade kit has been designed for the campaign. Beginning with green, then brown, a new kit with 12 color shades will be available each month through the rest of the year.
