JOIN THE SEWING PARTY
We’re thrilled to announce that Threads will participate in a new, one-of-a-kind event called The Sewing Party.
It is the first all-day, online DIY event where thousands of sewers and DIY-ers of all genres will gather for an exciting day of sewing and online crafting classes. The classes will be taught by top experts and leading bloggers in their respective fields.
A $40 registration fee grants participants access to more than 30 online classes, which will be available November 8 and for an additional 90 days thereafter. Class offerings include garment construction, fashion sewing, home décor, cosplay (costume play), quilting, and more.
The Sewing Party participants also will have the chance to chat with other attendees across the country*, interact with the experts and teachers, and explore the latest sewing and crafting tips, techniques, and products in their marketplace.
VISIT THREADS’ VIRTUAL BOOTH
Threads will have a virtual booth where you can find article and project downloads, instructional videos, and ways to learn more about our products. Threads Associate Editor Stephani Miller and Threads Executive Editor Judith Neukam also will be available for a chat November 8. You can interact with Stephani from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST, and with Judith from 3 p.m to 4 p.m. EST.
