Embellishing Printed Fabric with Thread Painting - Virtual Workshop Kit


You can only purchase this kit if you are signed up through a guild or quilt show to take this virtual class!


A workshop kit is mandatory to take the workshop. Regarding the options – a 6” machine embroidery hoop is required. It can be ordered with the kit or you can bring your own. For those using 40 weight polyester thread on the upper spindle Superior’s 60 weight Bottom Line thread has been recommended in a dark or light color but is not mandatory. The wrong weight thread in the bobbin can result in an unbalanced tension with the bobbin thread popping to the top threads. But you are learning a technique and the proper bobbin thread can be purchased at a later date. The other products listed are not mandatory for the workshop but can be ordered for future use.
Kit includes:
  • Custom printed background fabric (13"x9")
  • 17"x13" pc of batting
  • How-To booklet with pictures and instructions
