We do love our Glide Thread Club and Glide Thread. Watch the session on You Tube. Subscribe to our Pinhole Quilting You Tube channel to be the first to see new videos when they are uploaded.






We covered some of the common questions we get from new customers. So to help here are some close-up photos of the items covered on Facebook Live February 20th 2021.

Know your switches on the Avante!


Switch on Avante underneath the handlebars - this can be a white rocker like the one shown or a red push button switch

Needles

Getting needles in the right way round is really important. But there's no flat to the butt!






Glide Thread


5000m Cones of Glide Thread

Our Glide Thread Packs are available in sets of 9 threads on 1000m cones. We called them Glide Thread Club - you can acquire almost the entire range of 1000m Glide cones without repeating a single one through the sets. We've split them into different combinations and you can find them all on our handiquilter.co.uk website.

Quilters eye candy!




























Build up your knowledge of threads, needles and settings


Create your own thread chart based on your favourite threads. If you have a tension readout on your machine make a note of the number on the screen to help you next time.


Always match your thread to your needle using this chart as a guide
