Thread Painting Class

Yesterday I taught a new class (for me) on thread painting. It was held at Fourth Corner Quilts in Bellingham, WA and I had 7 really great enthusiastic students! They all had a super picture to work from and recreate in a realistic way that photo in thread. I wasn’t sure how far they would get in a one day class, but it was amazing what they accomplished. So I have a few photos to share with you. Now remember these are works in progress and not even finished yet…but still amazing how far they got in about 6 hours! They promised me they would send me photos of the finished products so I can post them here, so stay tuned!
