We remember 10% of what we read or hear, 50% of what we see, and nearly 100% of what we do. 

For over 10 years, we have been dedicated to teaching the quilting, embroidery, and sewing world about thread, needles, tension, and successful sewing. 

10% effective: Reading the newsletters or by attending a seminar.
50% effective: Watching 100+ educational videos on our website.  
100% effective: Hands-on guided experience.  We realize that 99% of our customers cannot attend our School of Threadology.  Therefore, to provide actual hands-on education to you, in your home, we have developed Superior University.  Think of it as independent study or correspondence study or distance learning.  As with all our education efforts (newsletter, videos, seminars, School of Threadology), Superior University has been designed to teach everything we know at a not-for-profit price.

Our Purpose To help you expand your knowledge and skills in sewing-related techniques and learn to successfully use  products you have not previously used.
Our Method Each month we will send you a carefully designed project including selected products. You will receive a simple pattern and easy-to-follow instructions to create a project.  Many projects will include a product or technique you may have never tried before.
Our Goal: To help you increase your knowledge and use of threads and related products which will add more possibilities to your projects.

Estimated Time Requirement Only 30 to 90 minutes per project.

Program Length Superior University is an ongoing program with no ending. You may cancel at any time
