  1. Let’s wrap up our discussion about the how the world of threads has changed over the last 50-60 years. Over the last several months, we have explored many types of threads made from various materials and/or fibers. I’ve noticed that over the last 5-10 years, people are using threads/fibers/materials not traditionally associated with any type of needlework or embroidery technique. I’m sure most of us have at least tried some type of thread or fiber that we have not yet explored, either on our own, part of a class kit or purchased kit.

  3. For our last challenge, we are going to take a little different approach and make it kind of a New Year’s Resolution challenge. It is two-fold, please consider doing one of both as a fun way to start the new year!

    CHALLENGE: 1) If you have not done any of the previous challenges, consider doing one and/or 2) consider repeating one of the challenges using a different thread or even one received as a holiday gift. If you need inspiration, check out the patterns identified with the challenge or other possibilities on our resources page (
