Introduction to Thread Painting

Through the three days of instruction, we will practice different styles of thread work and what works best with flowers, scenes, animals, trees, grasses, stones, skies, water, backgrounds, etc.
It is a relaxed class because in this type of thread work, anything goes and any 'mistakes' that are made can be easily hidden in the thread work (in most cases). This class brings out the 'artist' in each of us.

Level: Beginner, machine quilting experience

Fabric Painting Flowers

Learn how easy it is to paint your own fabric. This is not as messy or time consuming as fabric dying and provides wonderful effects of paint, water, and salt.

We will paint 2 pieces of fabric on Friday in the colors of the flowers and leaves. Saturday we will cut the pattern pieces, arrange the bouquets, and appliquilt them to the background. This year we are making tulips in any color you choose.

If you haven't taken this class before, I'd love to show you this method. If you have, come back. In February, the more flowers the better.

Size: approximately 18" x 24"

 Domestic Machine Quilting

The basic goal of this class is to learn techniques to free motion. We will practice simple, but impressive quilt patterns and grids. We will discuss preparation of each machin, the best way to make the quilt "sandwich", setting the proper tension, selecting the right thread, the proper needle and looking at the pattern that will enhance the quilt itself.

We will begin with small quilt sandwiches and graduate to a small quilt top. You can make that finished quilt top completely on your own by machine quilting it yourself on your domestic machine!
