[PyQt] PyQt4 pass an object into a Qthread

I have a DDE driver that is talking to a machine control app running on the
same computer.  The problem im having is being able to access the driver
functions through the lifetime of the main app using multiple threads.  

So far i have tried passing the object of the driver to the thread class and
importing the driver directly from the thread. 

Passing the driver to the class does not work when i call the start()

Importing the driver directly in the thread works fine, although if i abort
the thread i cannot then restart and use the driver.  I tried deleting all
the references it had imported but this process seemed a little inefficient,
and i never actually got it working. 

So my questions is, is there a way to pass the driver instance into the
qthread like this:
Main App:
import athread
import ddeDriver

at = athread.threadClass()


class threadClass(QtCore.QThread):
    def __init__(self, parent = None):
        QtCore.QThread.__init__(self, parent)

        self.running = True

    def run(self, ddeDriver):

        while self.running:
            if not ddeDriver.query('next'):

hopefully what im asking is clear.  Just need to be able to pass an object
into a QThread from the main app.  

Thanks for any help!!
