Come join us for a day of drawing with thread! Learn Sunny’s method of taking the characters of your imagination on a new kind of journey. We will stitch on old quilts that would otherwise have outlived their usefulness, bringing new life to these items created with love, decades ago. We will then turn our thread drawings into a cute little bag to carry with you!
Students will need to bring some supplies for this class:
Your sewing machine – Please make sure it is in good working order and that the feed dogs can be lowered
A darning foot
Any old, torn up quilt that you don't mind cutting up. We recommend you use a light colored quilt, as the stitching will show up best. You can find old "cutter" quilts on Ebay or Etsy, if you don't trip across one in your local flea market. Most of the pieces we will work with will be about 6" x 6"
Disappearing ink pen
Black thread and bobbin
Optional: We will have fabric strips, lining, felt pieces, and zippers. If you are in love with a piece of fabric that you must incorporate into your project, then by all means bring it!
"Who, me? I guess I'd say I am a painter of Ugly Girls (and sometimes, Pretty Girls!) and maker of things! I have a need to create that I just can't contain. I do something different every day. I paint, sculpt original dolls, make all sorts of fun things."
