Quilty: Bobbin - Part 1

In almost every quilting class, the number one problem isn't the patchwork — it isn't even the cutting — it's the threading. Well, Quilty is determined to help.

Watch as Mary threads her Baby Lock and talks about how thread travels through typical sewing machines. Even though your machine may be different than Mary's, this episode will help you find success when you sit down at your sewing area.

After all, if you can't get your machine threaded, how will you make all those gorgeous quilts? Watch this one on your phone at your machine — Quilty to the rescue!

Quilty: Finally, a home for rookie quilters. Not everyone knows how to thread a sewing machine. It's okay! Quilty is here to help. Quilty is a weekly quilting show offered online that seeks to inform and inspire the next generation of quilters. Hosted by Mary Fons, a J.V. quilter and co-host of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting on PBS, Quilty delivers great quilting instruction with humor, zest, and respect for the art of quilting. Many of today’s newer quilters visit quilt shops or randomly surf online with little to no knowledge of quilting basics. They feel bummed out and lost and often bail on the idea of making a quilt altogether. This is a tragedy of epic proportions! But it's no wonder: The home ec classes our mothers and grandmothers took were replaced by computer classes when we were in school. So it's Quilty's mission to teach rudimentary quilting skills in a friendly, welcoming way. There will be more advanced techniques, too, but the goal is always to inspire every viewer to make a quilt of her own after seeing just one episode. There's a new Quilty episode once a week. With style, class, and a sense of humor, Quilty aims to ignite new passion for the American quilt. Let's do this. For more Quilty and other related Quilting shows, visit QNNtv.com!
