So What Is Thread Painting All About
Friday, July 7, 2023
Some twenty plus years ago I picked up a little wooden hoop and a piece of stabilizer and that moment sent me on a totally unexpected, yet enjoyable, journey into the world of thread painting. Never in my wildest dreams did I think a little thread and stabilizer could produce such fun and creative designs. While Thread painting can look complicated, it is actually quite easy. With 20 years of making thread painted quilts and teaching to anyone that will listen, there is a story to tell. As an international thread painting quilt teacher, I have taught thousands of students. The lecture will demonstrate my thread painting techniques, some fun and humorous stories and lastly a virtual trunk slide show of quilts from my first thread painted quilt to my latest competitive quilt.

Thread Sketching to Enhance a Photograph
July 15, 2023 at 4:30:00 PM
Many of us have a photograph we would like to print on fabric and enhance the design with thread but just aren’t sure how to go about it. We will discuss the importance of value in thread selection so the thread augments the fabric and does not blend into the fabric. By the end of the workshop, you will be confident to transfer what you have learned to a photograph of your own. Printing on fabric will also be discussed to enable you to decide on how and where to have your fabric printed.
Kits MUST be purchased at least 7 days prior to workshop date.
