How To Thread

Superior Threads Sampler Pack

Sampler Pack from Superior Threads

On February 8, Bob Purcell, President of Superior Threads “and Self-Certified Threadologist,” taught Thread to a capacity audience assembled at the newly expanded and extremely sewer-friendly Fabrics Etc. 2 in Bensenville.

Read some of the tips that Liz C. learned at this seminar on the Sew Chicago blog.

Bob’s alter ego wife, Mother Superior, also writes a blog about all things thread. It’s great inspiration if you’ve ever wondered about using metallics or Texture Magic threads.

On my list of “how cool would that be to do?!” is to take Threadology‘s classes. Who can resist “Thread Therapy with Dr. Bob” and an “Open Thread Bar.”

If you missed the discussion at Fabrics Etc 2, here are a couple of videos from Superior Threads. Not quite the same as being there, though.

Cotton vs. Polyester Thread

Metallic Thread

Now you’ll be looking at that holiday gift exchange with a new eye when you open it and find metallic thread. 😉
