Thread Painting

...with Nancy Prince.  This was an awesome class and Nancy is a great teacher!

Haven't been able to get out and hang much with my sewing buddettes.  But, thanks to my gal pal, Willa, I was able to partake in an amazing class, learning an amazing technique!  Thread Painting!  So much fun and the creative possibilities are endless!  Literally!

The class was held at Country Cottage Sewing in Chuluota, FL. and Sherry is the most gracious hostess!  This is the cutest country cottage!

By the end of class, you would have completed one small landscape piece.  However, I want to embellish more on mine, but here's what it looks like...

At the beginning of class, we started on a project for a larger piece as we learned the technique.  One of the projects is worked off of the fabric and the other is worked right on your fabric.  Here's a look at the first project we worked on...once again, I will add more.
I love to learn new things and get new gadgets to work on the new projects (if I do not already have them; and most of the time, I do)!

I plan to take another one of Nancy's class on shading.  And, I will definitely visit Sherry's again for other classes, or just to stop by and say, "Hi"!

Please check out Nancy's website to see if and when she'll be in your part of town for classes.  It's well worth it!

HAPPY THREAD PAINTING!
