315-23: Thread Painting - Tamara Tanner

This will be a fun class where you will learn the basics of thread painting and improvisation. Don't think you are creative enough to improvise?  Think again!  I will teach you some basic designs that you can use on your thread art.  I teach in a way that will provide a structure, but will also give you space to improvise and make it your own. I will walk you through every step. No need to fear putting those first stitches in. Everything is fixable with thread painting! No unsewing required. "Mistakes" can be sewn over or used as the next jumping off point of your creativity.  If you ever wanted to create art with your sewing machine, or just want to learn/improve free motion quilting skills, this class is for you. Once you learn the basics, there is no end to what you can do!  Basic sewing skills are required.
