"Choosing Threads - Fearlessly!"



Are you frozen by choice? Do racks of thread make you nervous rather than excited?

If you have the "deer caught in the headlights" look when choosing threads then it's time to take a deep breath, relax, and learn step-by-step how to select suitable threads.

Piecing, quilting, stitch-in-the-ditch, invisible machine applique and decorative applique are discussed. See how different threads create different effects, and learn which needles should be used with them and why.

Start looking at threads in a whole new way, and discover the freedom to use them effectively throughout your work.

The meeting includes a door prize, and a 29-page handout that is emailed to guild members after the meeting. A copy of the DVD "Thread Therapy with Dr. Bob" is provided for the Guild library - compliments of Bob Purcell, Superior Threads.  

Threads are available for purchase.
