I wish we did! Sometimes you can find smaller packs online. Mostly all I can find is black tubing, which is why Margot dreamed up the thread-wrapping technique. You can also tie a little knot in the end, with or without a large-hole bead between the lace and the knot.

I'm excited to see what you guys create!

This is so serendipitous! Four of us are getting together this Sunday to make shoelaces. Already got the heat shrink tubing but was disappointed that I had to buy a whole package of various sizes and colors -- most of which I'll never use. do you have another source for the tubing other than the local big box hardware store?

WHY "GLITTER SWEATSHOP"?
As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
