Eye Candy to see…

I’ve been given some wonderful photos from Penny Roberts of her quilts to show you all! If you visit her teacher page you will be able to view a slideshow of photos of her 3D threader and what you can achieve with it. Here is a small sample…

Thread Dimensions, Adding Texture to Quilting

There is more to quilting than just patterns! Learn how you can creatively quilt with multiple threads on Gammill, APQS, A-1 and more! Make 3D Textures of dense outlining, fluffy soft fuzz, and loopies! How about Red Work on your longarm? Thrill your customers by learning how to blend color and add depth using multiple threads on Edge to Edge and Bread and Butter quilts!.

BONUS for attendees!!

We have negotiated with Sue van Riet of Sue’s Sewing World that her class to make a Journal Cover, that was just announced this week, is now only $50- for a 4 hour hands on session with new Brother Sewing Machines to use. These machines will be available at a fantastic price after the show if you happen to fall in love with them.
