Thread "What's the Big Deal" Lecture and Demo

THREADS…what a glorious thing! We use thread every single time we sew, and there are a lot of different types of threads, weights of thread, ply, and uses. You’ll learn a little of Nina’s thread knowledge during this interactive lecture as well as watch her demos on how to use some of these threads that tend give most of us a hard time. She’ll show you how to use 12 wt thread, trilobal polyester, monofilament, metallic, and any other thread you’d like to see. Nina shares tips and tricks to make all these difficult threads work, and the knowledge on how to purchase the right kind, (as in metallic thread). You’ll come away with a head full of knowledge about threads after this invaluable class! There’s nothing else like it anywhere!
