Scrumptious Threads Coming Up!

Interested in learning how to dye and use beautiful, variegated, multi-coloured thread to use in your quilts and textile work? I'm renting the dye studio at Wabi Sabi for a one day class on JULY 11, 2014. It's been a couple of years since I taught this class in Ottawa ... don't miss it! Email me at equehl@hotmail.com for information and to register.

Lighter-weight ones can be stitched through a Topstitch needle;

Heavier threads can be couched or used for bobbin work 
or textured hand-stitching. 

We will also be spending a day dyeing thread at my week-long "Uncommon & Unforgettable Threads" class at Haliburton School of the Arts, July 28 - August 1, 2014. Other topics to be covered there are: thread painting, thread sketching, hand-stitching, couching, bobbin work, when to use a stabilizer, what needles to use, and how to be successful with any thread. Click here for the course description and registration information.
