Have you ever wanted to make a stunning quilt? Well in this workshop we are going to make an animal, using the thread painting technique. We will master various techniques such as building a background and “painting” the cat with your sewing machine. Even a beginner can thread paint using my technique. You don’t need to draw at all! And on top of it all – the animal will be 3D! Don’t be afraid! This is new, exciting and lots of fun! Give the painter in you an opportunity to emerge and the result will be mind-blowing! This workshop is one and a half days.
