Embroidery Club – Tuesday, May 1

Do you need a thread catcher for your sewing room? I certainly do. I am constantly cutting threads and dropping them on the floor. The result is a vacuum roller with twisted threads that are very hard to remove. Now I have a thread catcher by every machine in my sewing room to remind me not to drop the threads on the floor.

Come to Embroidery Club this month and make your own Thread Catcher.

Supply List:

Thread Catcher

  • sand (optional) Needed to weight the pin cushion so that it will not fall of the table. I put my sand inside 2 small sandwich zip lock bags.
