Thread Painting Class



Thread painting or sketching with thread and your sewing machine adds dimension to panels. Using your sewing machine and a pre-printed piece of fabric, you will learn how to add colour to the piece making it look almost 3-D! You will be given a fabric piece in the class that has a cat on it. You will learn what “thread painting” is, how to achieve the realistic shading and accenting for the piece by free motion quilting.

The “free motion” quilting you will be doing is a very simple form of free motion. But it is essential that you do have a “free motion quilting foot” otherwise this technique will not work. You will do a brief practise on a quilt sandwich to “warm up” your muscle memory. This technique can then be transferred to larger panels that you can then make into wall hangings or even quilt tops or table runners.
