Customers look to your staff as the experts. They should understand needle systems, functions of needle anatomy, needle types, color coding and clues to change the needle. Class will increase not only knowledge base, but increase the confidence of your staff.

Rhonda has a dream job... teaching sewing fans about the most important 2" piece of steel in the sewing machine - the SCHMETZ needle. She creates programs and support materials that are easy and well organized for fast needle knowledge. Rhonda's proudest professional accomplishment is the 2014 availability of color coded needles to her sewing public.
During Rhonda's SCHMETZ classes, students respond with "a ha" moments and giggles as they learn needle facts. She enjoys sharing needle knowledge in classrooms and sewing shows throughout North America. She travels with the SCHMETZ "Super" Needle - it's 17" tall - and always asks "What's Your Favorite SCHMETZ Needle?"
Rhonda publishes the "must read" monthly SCHMETZ newsletters and the esteemed SCHMETZ Inspired to SEW.
