Thread comes in a variety of weights and fibers, but how do you know which one to use to get the desired effect? Choosing the right thread can be challenging but is vital to the success and longevity of our sewing. In this lecture Elissa will show you how to select the correct weight of thread for your projects, make ideal needle choices, and tips on pairing bobbin thread for the best results while keeping the application or technique in mind. Additionally, we will cover basics such as spool positioning and tension settings on your sewing machine. Get inspired by Elissa’s beautifully finished samples showing the many applications for thread on things like quilted garments, bags, and more! Each of her samples showcases how to successfully mix and match thread varieties and weights for a unique and beautiful finish. Whether you want your stitches to stand out or not, you don’t want to miss this class!
