CREATIVE THREADS is an embroidery Special Interest Group (SIG) that concentrates on all aspects of machine embroidery. Past programs have included topics such as embroidery machine basics, thread and stabilizer selection, downloading and saving embroidery designs, and numerous embroidery techniques.  Because embroidery machines are too heavy, they are not brought to the meeting.  Show and Tell is a big part of every meeting. Members show their embroidered pieces and share information about embroidery designs, embroidery websites, fabrics, threads, and stabilizers.  They may also discuss various challenges encountered with designs or techniques and ask for suggestions from the group on how to achieve better results.
