--Preparing for the Workshop--


Want to give character to your characters?  Realistic designs are achieved by incorporating shadows and highlights into a design. Learn the design parameters required to shade and highlight with thread to create realism.  A preprinted design easily guides you through each step. Also, this workshop will show you how to divide a design into parts then assemble it so the design has more dimension and thus more realism. This is the first workshop I will teach to show how-to thread paint figures similar to the figures in my latest competitive quilt – the Declaration of Independence – Voices of Freedom. So come see how easy the process is and how much fun creating designs in thread can be!

A 6" machine embroidery hoop is recommended for this workshop.  You can purchase hoops at this link.  Quilters Select 80 weight bobbin thread is recommended in a dark or light color but is not mandatory. The wrong weight thread in the bobbin can result in an unbalanced tension with the bobbin thread popping to the top threads. But you are learning a technique and the proper bobbin thread can be purchased at a later date.
