Creating Realistic Thread Painted Designs

Virtual quilt class - Embellishing

Creating Realistic Thread Painted Designs

8 Hours (two 4-hour days) - 15 Students

$110 includes workshop kit


Want to give character to your characters?  Realistic designs are achieved by incorporating shadows and highlights into a design. Learn the design parameters required to shade and highlight with thread to create realism.  A preprinted design easily guides you through each step. Also, this workshop will show you how to divide a design into parts then assemble it so the design has more dimension and thus more realism. This is the first workshop I will teach to show how-to thread paint figures similar to the figures in my latest competitive quilt – the Declaration of Independence – Voices of Freedom. So come see how easy the process is and how much fun creating designs in thread can be!

Countryside Thread Sketching

Virtual quilt class - Embellishing

Countryside Thread Sketching

7 Hour (two 3 1/2 - hour days) - 15 Students

$89 includes workshop kit


Thread sketching is a bit different from thread painting in that the final result is just the “idea” of the photograph or design. Thread sketching is faster than thread painting in that the design does not have to be completely filled with thread. Only a straight or zigzag stitch is required. The comprehensive videos during the workshop will guide you through each step of the project. The video recordings will be available for 30 days from the workshop date. By the end of the workshop, you will be confident to transfer your own photographs or designs onto fabric.

Crazy for Thread Painted Landscapes - Summer
​​​​​

7 Hour (two 3 1/2 - hour days) - 15 Students

$99 includes workshop kit


You can thread paint your way to success in this workshop simply by using an overlay drawing and custom printed background fabric to guide you to success. How simple is that!! Straight and zigzag stitches are simple to learn as you quickly begin your own thread painting adventure. Part of the workshop is to demonstrate how to reproduce realistic landscape elements. So come be Mother Nature for a day and create a small landscape vignette. Just beware – thread painting is so addictive.

Embellishing Fabric with Thread Painting

Embellishing Fabric with Thread Painting

7 Hours - 15 Students

Black and white fabric is prevalent in most quilt shops and is a very creative option to thread paint some amazing designs. Thread painting on commercial fabric is as easy as 1.2.3. In this workshop you will learn how to blend thread to make the finished flower look realistic. With a printed design, it is easy to begin your thread painting adventure. The comprehensive video will guide you through each step of the project and is almost like having a private lesson with me. Once you have taken this class, you will never look at black and white fabric the same!!
