Julie Woods is a Superior Threads Educator located in Goulburn New South Wales.

During the first part of the workshop we will be talking about thread quality, weights, needles, tensions and how you can use specialty threads. Julie will bring along some of her quilts showing the use of different threads.

During the rest of the workshop you will be able to help yourself to the “Open Thread Bar”, where you will have the opportunity to try a large selection of Superior Threads. You can create a panel which will be provided where you can use the decorative threads while making tension changes to your machine and seeing the differences in the look of the stitches. You will note the tension changes on your panel next to your work.  You may continue to work on this for the remainder of the day or thread-play on a floral panel or quilt on a fabric that has been marked using a stencil.

Julie will be happy to answer all of your questions regarding threads, needles, tensions etc.
