... a fly tying workshop in my area ...

Are you planning a "class" for people who've never tied before?  Or more in line of a "get-together" for new AND existing tyers?

 

If you're going to cater to a variety of skill levels, then you shouldn't need a ton of thread.  Most will have the basics, or they wouldn't be coming to a workshop.

As stated above, Just buy a supply of threads on spools in the colors you want. 

You'll beat yourself up trying to re-spool fly tying bobbins.  Not to mention that you'll need to first GET those bobbins.  The time, frustration and initial cost probably won't be large enough to justify.

 

Welcome to the site, and good luck on whatever it is you're trying to do.

I've never even looked for DT.  Doesn't fit the type of fishing I do.  But I did find something on Ebay that says it's DT.

In Topic: What Feathers Do You Need

Yooper is 13.  If he starts now, by the time he's 40, he might be able to have chickens with feathers that are far superior to Whiting and others.  I mean, those guys started a few decades ago, and look what they're producing.  Yooper might be the NEXT Whiting.

 

Go for it, kiddo.  Please realize, however, your hatchlings will only be what they are.  If you're going to produce a line of specialty chickens ... it WILL take years, maybe decades.
