About The Thread Wizard
My name is Timothy Griffith, aka The Thread Wizard. Originally from Dublin, GA I now reside in Raleigh, NC with my husband and fur babies. Thank you for taking the time to visit my site! I look forward to inspiring you through one of my sewing classroom offerings and maybe even working with you on a custom commissioned project.
Having developed a childhood interest in working with needle and thread when my grandmother taught me how to sew by hand, the desire to explore this hobby in more detail rekindled in my adulthood. In 2007, I was gifted a sewing machine and immediately began exploring the fundamentals of machine sewing through an abundance of online video resources.
Early into the development of my sewing hobby I discovered quilting and immediately fell in love! I also found an early interest in bag making. Throughout the years, I have continued developing these specific skillsets. At one point, I even worked in a local quilt shop and am so grateful for having had the opportunity because I learned so much working there. Additionally, the opportunity helped me make many lasting friendships there!
