Superior Threads DVD

A few months ago Bob and Heather Purcell, owners of Superior Threads came to our guild meeting and filmed a DVD. Bob does a fabulous 1 hour seminar and has recieved many requests that he do a DVD with the same information.
The DVD is now for sale on Superior Threads web site. They are currently selling it for an introductory price of $19.95 (reg. $24.95) You can order one HERE.

Not only will you be able to view Bob's seminar, but the DVD also contains an 88 page education manual, all the thread reference guides, 72 page color booklet and more.
In my opinion, the eduction manual is worth the $ alone.
I have had friends ask me how could you possibly spend an hour talking about nothing but thread? Trust me, one hour barely covers the tip of the iceberg. You will also learn about needles, machine tension, and problem solving when working with your machine. What you don't learn in the DVD, you can read about in the booklets.
For those who want to attend the School of Threadology, this DVD covers the first seminar.
Superior Threads is all about education.
And if you look very closely at the DVD you can see me in the front row....well actually it's the back of my head... but hey, I'm there!

I have heard Bob on The Quilt Show, and boy is there a lot to learn about threads. It looks like a great dvd.

I ran out of my white cone thread a week or so ago - remember my thread emergency. I usually have thread back up. But I didn't this time. So I went in my closet and found a cone of thread. It didn't quite feel right. And then I started to sew with it - ICK! It was polyester and it was horrible. Anyone who thinks thread doesn't matter needs to use good thread and then try to use crappy thread. I promptly threw that thread away!
