Have you ever wanted to experiment with different threads before buying them? Well, now you can! This is Superior’s official “open thread bar” workshop – you bring your machine and Anita will bring 15 different Superior threads for you to use. Learn how to choose the correct needle, and how to overcome your fear of the tension dial. We’ll discuss the properties of the different threads available today so that you can make an informed decision when choosing thread.
Celebrate with us as we welcome the month with an Opening Reception and Open Mic Night hosted by award-winning spoken word artist Patrick de Belen.

Refreshments will be served.
