Donated threads 2

4th February 2024

Dear embroidery enthusiasts,


Wishing you a vibrant New Year brimming with creativity and joy!

In December 2023, our warehouse received a generous donation from one of our clients – 80 brand new threads and approximately 100 gently used ones, all in sizable 5,000m cones. We excitedly shared the news on our Facebook page and allocated these threads to five talented embroiderers dedicated to crafting for a cause.

Fast forward to this year, and our generosity has expanded! Our thoughtful client has donated an additional 160 cones, some with open covers but with half of the threads barely used.

If you're a home embroiderer weaving your magic for charitable causes such as crafting quilts, making toys for children, or contributing to projects for the elderly or hospitals, we extend a warm invitation. Connect with us via email, and together, let's transform this unexpected gift into heartwarming creations for those in need.

A heartfelt thank you to Mr. Frank Farhad for his generous and considerate contribution.

Warm regards,
Susie Paek

Dear embroidery enthusiasts,

THREADS DONATION: A Gift of Creativity

We are excited to share some wonderful news with our community. One of our esteemed commercial embroiderer clients, facing health challenges, has generously decided to give back. He has returned 80 x 5,000m cones of thread in assorted colours. Although these threads were purchased four years ago, they remain untouched, with unopened covers.

While some threads experienced shocks during transportation due to inadequate handling instructions, we believe in the resilience of creativity. These threads, though softened at the top, are still usable, offering a unique opportunity to those who enjoy crafting for a cause.

If you're a home embroiderer involved in charitable work for hospitals, crafting quilts, or making toys for children and the elderly, we invite you to connect with us via email. Let's turn this unexpected gift into heartwarming creations for those in need.

A special thanks to Mr Frank Farhad for his thoughtful contribution.

Dear embroidery enthusiasts,

Notice Of Price Increases

We hope you understand that at Marathon, delivering our huge range of beautiful threads and making sure you receive great service is our first priority. That's why our customers stay with us.

Due to an increase in pricing from our supplier Marathon, we have been forced to make some increases in the pricing of threads and backing paper.

The increase of up by 12% will be reflected in the selling pricing from 1st March 2022.

We feel extremely uncomfortable increasing our prices. However, the COVID-19 situation continues to affect the cost of yarn and international shipping costs.

We will continue our commitment to keeping stocks of our full range of thread colours, so you can get the colours you want, when you want them.

We want to again thank you all for the loyal support, kind words and great suggestions you have given us over the years.

Warm regards,
Susie Paek and team at Marathon Australia Pty Ltd
