Want to learn Dimensional Thread Painting but you think it is too hard. I often hear, “I am not creative and Can my Machine do this? etc., etc., Yes, You are Creative and Yes, you can do this on your Domestic Sewing Machine!!!In this class you will start with a Beautiful Panel to Create a piece of Art!

You will learn the proper steps of Dimensional Thread Painting and find it to be a fun and creative technique. Explore the various thread selection, setting up your machine for stitching techniques with free motion quilting of zig zag and straight stitching, bobbin work and embellishing with netting and crystals.
