About Us

Tristan Italian Threads

Sylvia Anderson formed Tristan Embroidery Supplies in 1994 after working in sales for a thread import company since 1985. Tristan Embroidery Supplies started selling pellon and threads to industrial embroidery companies. The threads we sold were mainly rayon and polyester but Sylvia recognized there was a need for good quality cotton threads for Quilters in North America.

In 1998 Tristan found Aurifil Cotton Mako in Milan, Italy. From 1998 to 2007 Tristan made Aurifil one of the more well known threads for Quilters in North America.

In an effort to find a thread producer with an even better quality Cotton Mako, in February 2007 Tristan discovered Italy's Cucirini Tre Stelle founded in 1903. Cucirini Tre Stelle of Milan, Italy will be marketed under the trade name Tristan Italian Threads. Tristan Italian Threads is now able to buy factory direct, with the exclusive right to import and distribute throughout North America. The advantage of factory direct is a cost savings that we can pass on to you, and also provide you with a higher quality product.

Tristan Italian Threads are available in North America through our two unique U.S. and Canadian distribution centers, located less than one hour apart in Richmond, British Columbia and Bellingham, Washington.
