What does "metallic", "heavy" and "twisted" all have in common? Some would say, "Difficult Threads", but not so for Linda Schmidt. With a combination of "drinking straw", "Sewers Aid", "Top stitching needle" and more, she makes stitching with unusal threads exciting and fun rather than frastrating and clumbersome in her class "Filament Fantasy".

Some time ago, I made a facebook page for the Academy of Quilting and for that page I made a banner showing one class from every teacher listed at the time (we now have some more teachers!).
