Needles & Thread – a marriage in heaven or hell?

Dawn has learned so much about needles, threads, and fabric over the years and, in this lecture, shares this vast knowledge with us. The relationship between line and hand on your machine is significant. Did you know that Schmetz alone makes 33 different sorts of writings, not to mention that there can be various sizes in each category? They are made for a reason. True to say that not all needles apply to quilters. But we are trying to use so many of the lovely different threads that are now on the market, and with some knowledge from Dawn. You can avoid some frustrating sewing days.

If your local quilt shop doesn’t stock the Presencia threads, you can obtain them through Creative Quilting, which currently stocks the beiges, greys, and neutral shades.


Update Since Filming :

If you would like to learn more about needles and threads, we recommend adding yourselves to the Barnyarns newsletter database – https://www.barnyarns.co.uk/. Its height is informative regularly!

The new threads on the block that we all like are Aurifil – again available through your local quilt shop or www.creativequilting.co.uk
