Threads: The Basics and Beyond


I am soooo excited....Threads: the Basics and Beyond by me and Debbie Bates is a finalist in ForeWord's Book of the Year Awards in the Craft and Hobby category.

This is such a huge honor! The category includes all craft and hobby books not just quilting and fabric art. Wow...can you say thrilled?? I may need to tie weights to my ankles to keep my feet on the ground!

Passport for Threads Basic and Beyond


I am so delighted that I think this calls for a giveaway! Don't you? Leave a comment here and on April 1st ( no fooling!) I will use a random number generator to give away a copy of Threads: the Basics and Beyond! Tell me what you love about thread, your favorite thread or just cheer for thread!

And, for all you thread lovers don't forget that I have a FREE on-line book study in the forum on this site. Actually two FREE on-line book studies...Fabric Embellishing and Threads. We even have a few dedicated stitchers in both studies. Come on in and play with us.

I'm so excited for you! Hooray for you both and hooray for threads! My favorites are the 12 weights from Sulky and the 17 weights from Superior. Now, you just go girl!

Congrats Liz on such an honor! I am so proud of you! You don't have to throw my name into the mix for the free book, since I already have the book. Hurray for THREADS!

Yay!!!! I'm so happy for you being finalists! I had this one on order on Amazon for ages and they finally said they couldn't get it, so I don't have this one yet. (It's on my list for when I get paid.) It would be great to win one instead!

Congrats!

Congratulations. I am in awe. I know a lot of hard work went into this. I will have to check it out. I love having lots of thread for my art quilts, mostly variegated.

Congrats!! What a great honor for the both of you. As for my favorite thread . . . . Don't have any yet, I'm just starting out with thread painting so I have no thoughts on threads yet. Planning on taking a class in Long Beach with Pam Holland on thread painting, ask me again after the class. Nancy B.

So this might just be the book that helps me make some sense of thread. I know there are numbers that describe threads and then there is the fiber content. But I am a complete novice about it all.

I DID order two pair of Havell scissors after reading your posie tutorial. And I wrote and told them that it was because of your tutorial... Hope they have you do more!
