Follow the Thread: A New Way to Approach Free-Motion Quilting

April 4 - 8, 2018

Medium: Fabric

Level: All Levels

3-Day Studio Class

Loosen up and explore new territory with line and stitch in this free-motion quilting workshop. Students will learn to focus on the character of line and personal symbols through simple drawing and observation exercises. You will translate line to thread, develop techniques to accelerate ideas, accept the imperfect and stitch from the imagination. Student exercises provide new tools for seeing, interpreting and completing concept-driven work. With a focus on generating ideas through research and observation, you will build your stitching vocabulary and trust the thread to tell your story. Open to all skill levels; free-motion quilting experience a plus.
