Sept 12, 2018 Meeting – Cindy Scraba of Cindy’s Threadworks
Cindy Scraba of Cindy’s Threadworks
Cindy’s love of texture began as a child. She secretly stashed bits of lace and trim to re-fashion into doll clothers. She taught herself to sew, crochet and embroider by watching her mother and admiring her mother’s needlework pieces. Her love affair for all-things-textured lives on in her collections of vintage crocheted items, embroidered linens, semi-precious-to-her stones, and antique glassware for their awe inspiring beauty and design elements. Her life-long love of texture includes her pets who possess an endearing texture and her home that is surrounded by five acres of a natural rainforest which has ever-changing seasonal textures, colours, flora and fauna.
In 2007 she discovered Superior Threads and with this her experience in creating textures took a great leap forward and inspired her to begin her on-line business, Cindy’s Threadworks. Her topic for our program is Thread Therapy and she will bring a selection of Superior Threads (500 yard spools of King Tut, Bottom Line, Micro Quilter, Masterpiece So Fine, Variegateds, and some specialty metallics), patterns, and some notions for us to purchase. If you want a cone size of any of her threads (see www.cindysthreadworks.com for a selection), you can order them from her website (chose option #2 pick up/delivery when you check out of the website and let her know you are ordering them for delivery to our meeting). She will bring them with her to our guild meeting on September 12.
