Happy New Year!  Sit and Sew with Ruth McCormick

You've just spent hours, days or weeks finishing that beautiful quilt top.  Now it's time to quilt your project.  Do you know which batting to use?  Is it a bed quilt?  Is it a wall hanging?  Is it a table topper?  Dark or light?  Which batting works best for each application?

Speaker: Eric Drexler Lecture: "All About Sulky"

Event Date and Time: 

02/02/2017 - 7:00pm

Join us for this fast-paced, interactive lecture.  You’ll learn about Sulky History, needle know how, stabilizers (which to use for what project) metallic thread (tips and tricks) and Sulky thread (rayon, poly deco, polly lite, cottons, blendables) and so much more.

Each attendee will receive a folder full of information on needles, threads and stablizers to take home.
