thread-bar

Open Thread Bar – with Anita Zobens certified Superior instructor

Have you ever wanted to experiment with different threads before buying them? Well, now you can! This is Superior’s official “open thread bar” workshop – you bring your machine and she will bring the Superior threads for you to play with.  Learn how to choose the correct needle, and how to overcome your fear of the tension dial. She’ll discuss the properties of the different threads available today so that you can make an informed decision when choosing thread. At the end of the day you will have a new perspective on threads and your own sampler as future reference.

Your $5 kit fee (to be paid at class to instructor) will include a Titanium Topstitch needle, prewound bobbin, and use of all threads by Superior. Class notes, “Thread Therapy with Dr. Bob” DVD, plus a special 26-page handout are also provided.    Suitable for all skill levels.

March 24 2017  10-4 (please bring a lunch)

Class fee $75.00 includes all supplies required other than 5$ fee to instructor.  This leaves you to bring ONLY your machine!
Threads are available for purchase after class.

class is held at Road 17 N Quilt Shop , 1675 Diamond Drive Winkler

  2. I love your shop! I’ve stopped in several times and purchased every time! Hard to resist! Would love to be added to your email list for notice of events. My only regret is you’re not closer or open in the evening.
