What's Included

Learn to turn your favorite photos into artful fabric landscapes. In this class you will create a realistic fabric landscape by choosing appropriate fabrics and making free-motion machine stitches. You will be taught how to make patterns for your picture, learn many artistic points, learn how to stitch picture details, receive a reference booklet and plenty of individual help. After taking this class you will have a completed, or nearly completed fabric landscape! Students must bring their own sewing machine (for the second and third sessions) and have a basic ability to use the free-motion mode. Be sure your machine is in great working condition. No painting is involved, but you will be an artist with just fabric and thread! Supply list: • Your photo • A black and white copy of the photo enlarged to the size you wish to make in fabric. • Scissors for paper • Pen or fine tipped marker • Tracing paper • Optional: Fabrics you may use, but you will learn about fabric choice and know more clearly what to use after the first session • NOTE: at the first session you will learn what other supplies you will need, such as stabilizer, kinds of thread and fabrics, and adhesives. It is VERY helpful if you have time to work on your piece between class sessions.
