Workshops Offered


Thread Workshops available after lecture or adjoining day:

“THREAD PLAY” A Thread Journal Workshop: A MUST for all quilters! This class is a hands-on workshop which includes an innovative method developing a Thread Journal® to practice sample stitches and new threads. Practicing and using threads during Thread Play explains in detail the differences and relationships between sewing machine settings, needles, and threads. All quilters will learn to develop their own Thread Journal®. The act of actually using a variety of Specialty threads and creating the Thread Journal® for reference, helps the quilter diagnose and solve 95% (yes, 95%) of all problems faced with machines on a daily basis. I also share my years of knowledge of machine maintenance in a simple and understandable explanation of basic machine procedures and thread information, which all quilters should use, but don't really understand. This class will affect every item you sew and every quilt you make from this point on while learning how to tame those specialty threads we love to hate!.  – 2-3 hrs.

THRILLING THREADS PROJECT:  This workshop is designed to complement and reinforce the knowledge gleaned from the Thrilling Threads Lecture and skills from the Thread Play/Thread Journal workshop. The workshop is especially designed to be started and completed within 2-3 hrs. Each quilter will have fun putting into use multiple types of threads, and leave with a completed thread-intensive project. There are various “projects” to choose from, but the entire class must agree ahead of time to work on the same project. This project workshop incorporates many thread elements into the project which reinforces all the information learned and helps retain the skills learned. When scheduled, a list of all projects offered will be provided. I provide the complete kit including all supplies and thread. – 2-3 hours
