Rates & Enrollment

The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.

This thread painting technique is one specifically adapted by Pam Holland. The resulting quilt will look like a painting and Pam teaches you how to achieve this effect.

There are no long lines of stitching. The stitching lines are similar to a pencil drawing, small and directional. You learn basic art and photography techniques on how to achieve a very realistic thread painted image.

Everybody has style! Some go for simplicity, others like more detail. You may tend to carefully stitch your image or you may take a more haphazard approach. Perhaps you have a favorite design element or two. You'll also consider your personal stitching style.There are no right or wrong methods. It's all personal choice. For Pam, drawing with thread is where creative license begins. This is where she begins to move things, change values, construct or deconstruct.
