Oh no! Is this the Kreinick floss company owners? I loved the milk paint colors, in fact got some not too long ago. Goodness, so sorry.

Kreinik Company has led to a rainbow of emotions for me-from extreme anger and frustration when the thread tangles to extreme joy and happiness seeing all the beautiful colors come to life on my fabric. His contribution is amazing. I was also very interested in seeing that he also developed the D ring which we use so much in our offices.
He had a full life and will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear that he passed away. I dont remember which author it was or which series, but Kreinik was mentioned in the book and it was a shot of joy when they mentioned it. I think they even mentioned Jerry by name.
It is sad to hear that he passed awy. My sympathies to his family and hope for them to be able to weather this sadness with grace.
