I am lucky enough to be teaching again this year at the International Quilt Festival Houston 2013. This is an exciting and creative even, that people from all over the world attend! Here are the classes that I will be teaching:
Mixed Media Miscellany October 31, 2013: Creatively Collaged Concoctions
I will demonstrate how to create your own fabric base and appliqués using Solvy, bits of this and that, your sewing machine and your imagination. There are three demos, the Solvy Sandwich, Fabric and Solvy Sandwich, and Lace and Ultra Solvy Sandwich.
This is a great class for the beginner, or intermediate student who wants to add dyeing and over-dyeing techniques to her repertoire. Nine simple tying, folding, pinning and stitching techniques are combined with several simple dyeing techniques to create interesting and unique patterns. Once you work with these self-setting dyes, nothing white will ever be safe again!
These lovely little ornaments are perfect for any holiday or gift from the heart! There are five designs made from felt using a few basic embroidery stitches from my book Embroidered and Embellished.
These little beaded beauties are just fun to make. They start with a form made from silk ribbon that is tightly stuffed. Then beads, and more beads are stitched in rows around the form. They can be made into a pin or a button.
I will also be demonstrating a few of my Decorative Trims at the Friday Morning Sampler.
Can’t wait! Hope to see you all there!
Happy Stitching~ Christen
