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 she 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.
You can find Presencia threads on www.creativequilting.co.uk.
