Back To Spool Workshop
What: Thursday August 4, 2022 as part of the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival
Where: Amherst, Nova Scotia
Who: Taught by Karen Neary
Join me for a relaxed day of free-motion stitching, with a little abracadabra and trompe l'oeil thrown in to help release the power contained within a spool of thread. This class is not for beginners, but for those comfortable with free-motion stitching. We will go back-to-spool to play with various weights of threads, stitching on wash-away stabilizer to create appliqués which may be added to any project. Project for the day will be a flowering crab apple tree. A selection of beautiful Aurifil threads will be included in the class fee (including a special surprise from our awesome sponsor, Aurifil!), along with stabilizers needed to complete the project. You will supply your own background fabric on which to place your tree...or you simply want to frame it with your hoop for a sweet little hanging.
Students will need to bring confidence in free motion stitching, as well as an embroidery hoop that fits on the bed of your machines (i.e. make sure it fits under your needle and within your throat space. The one I use is 7-1/2” across and 3/8” high).firstname.lastname@example.org. Your spot is confirmed once payment is received (etransfer is preferred, but other arrangements can be made. There are a limited number of seats available, so please do not send money until your spot is confirmed via email.) There are no refunds, however I will work with you to find a replacement if unable to attend.
