Hello Friends!

North Star Quilters Guild invites you to an online lecture with Nina Clotfelter.

Join us on Saturday, February 27 at 10 AM for an online presentation:
THREADS - What's the BIG deal?


This is a FUN lecture on all the things you didn't know you needed to know about thread!
As an educator for WonderFil Specialty Threads, Nina has learned a lot and wants to share!

When we purchase thread it's usually the color we buy, or the thread the shop carries.  In this lecture you'll learn about the different weights of thread and why they make a difference. Why is ply important?
How do we work with specialty threads like metallic, monofilament and tinsel?
Why do metallics give us issues? 
This lecture is FULL of information you'll be happy you know


The lecture is free, but registration is required as spaces are limited. Register at the Signup Genius event:
