My name is Roni Hennen and I developed Thread Heaven Thread Conditioner and Protectant, a product created to both reduce thread tangling and fraying, and at the same time, to protect the integrity of the thread . If you would like to know why and how, please read on......
I have been an avid beader for many years,
and when, in the early '90's, beading experienced a resurgence in
popularity, I began teaching as well. I was often dismayed when
some of my students, particularly children, or older students whose
eyesight was not what it once was, or whose hands had started to
stiffen a bit, became frustrated because of the tangling, knotting
and fraying associated with beading thread.
I discouraged them from using beeswax to coat
the thread because I was aware of the destructive effect it had
on the thread itself; as frustrating as the tangling and fraying
were, it was worse to see a piece start falling apart after a few
months when the wax that was holding the frayed thread together
began to break down.
I felt that beaders, whether new to the craft or old vets, would
benefit if these problems could be controlled, so I began experimenting
with established products. I tried everything from Vaseline®,
to ChapStik®, to WD-40®, with results from disappointing
to disastrous. All had side effects that would prove detrimental
to the thread in the long run. It wasn’t their fault; like
beeswax, they were never intended to be a thread conditioner. So
I decided to invest the time, and money to develop a totally new
product; one that would not only make beading easier, but would
protect the integrity of the thread during the process.
I hired a chemist and lab time, and after
about year of experimenting, the Thread Heaven formula was developed.
Not only did it meet my expectations, it far exceeded them by adding
a level of protection to the thread the extends its lifetime many
times over! Equally importantly, it became evident that Thread Heaven
would be beneficial to any craft that used thread, not just beading.
Because of its unique abilities, the Thread
Heaven formula was granted its own patent, and the rest, as they
say, is history.
