LECTURES & WORKSHOPS

The lecture is entitled "A Thread Tale". In this 45-minute lecture, I describe the differences between threads that are available on the market today. Threads included in the lecture are cotton, polyester, rayon, silk and many decorative types of threads. It covers suggestions for applications using these threads as well as tips on how to successfully use decorative threads. You will learn what the industry "Buzzwords" mean. The lecture includes an overview of sewing machine needles and uses. It will also include a trunk show.

WORKSHOPS

Intermediate Quilting with Decorative Threads

This is a technique class on thread. (Not another UFO to bring home!) This class can be either a full-day workshop or can be shortened to a half-day workshop. You will learn how to use various thread weights and how to deal with those difficult threads that we love but hate to use. Techniques will include bobbin work, twin needle, couching and others. This is a perfect chance to experiment with different threads and explore the creative options for quilting. Everyone who is taking this class must have prior machine quilting experience and be willing to learn how to adjust both top and bobbin tensions. When you finish this class, you will have samples of the different techniques and reference notes that will help you when you want to apply these new techniques on your future projects.

This is a technique class on appliqué. (Not another UFO to bring home!) This class can be either a full-day workshop or can be shortened to a half-day workshop.

In this class you will learn several different machine appliqué techniques including satin stitch appliqué, buttonhole appliqué and prepared invisible stitch appliqué. You will be using both traditional appliqué stitches and decorative stitches for machine appliqué. When you finish this class, you will have samples of the different techniques and reference notes that will help you when you want to apply these new techniques on your future projects.
