< Workshops Workshop: 11-The Amazing Alphabet Workshop

IN PERSON WORKSHOP ONLY:  Art Quilting , tracing, free motion quilting and learning how to “shade” to give your drawings dimension.

Really – You don’t need to be an artist!  It’s more like a coloring book.  

In this class learn how to create dimension using India Ink PITT Pens and Dual Brush Pens and other techniques to embellish your quilts, become an art quilter or just have fun making a cute wall hanging or pillow.

Pam’s Hollands book, The Adventures of the Amazing Alphabet is now available and a requirement to take the class it includes all the alphabet patterns for your personal use.  Available in my store for  ($32.00).

It’s easier than you think:

Like using a coloring book, trace the pattern onto fabric with Indian Ink pens, then color and shade them.  Learn how to highlight and shadow using dual-tip pens.   Your work look more dimensional and your drawings will come alive.  Then a  bit of free motion sewing and you’ll be done!
