< Workshops Workshop: 09-Vintage Holiday Class

IN PERSON WORKSHOP ONLY:  Create an adorable wall hanging using a vintage design. Learn how to trace a design onto fabric using a light box with an India ink pen.  I will teach you how to highlight and shadow to give your drawing dimension, using a dual tip India ink marker.  Last, learn my special techniques for free motion quilting your designs both from the front and back of the quilt. You don’t have to be an artist to be successful.

Want to make an old fashion Valentine or one of these patterns below, you will receive one pattern free (if available) to use in class.  Based on old Vintage Postcards, my patterns will be available for this class,  please email me up to 3 days before the class to make sure I have that pattern available for you to use.  Alternatively, you can bring something you want to do but remember,  (some projects may be too complex for your first class, so email me a copy prior to class to have your own designs pre-approved).

By using the dual tip pens along with my techniques to highlight and shade for projects will give them dimension and bring them to life.  Pens will be available for purchase in class.

UPDATE:  If you are taking this class you are welcome to trace any or all of my patterns* during class.  They are NOT for distribution and are for your personal use only.

*If you are taking this class and would like to use a pattern from The Adventures of the Amazing Alphabet, you are welcome to; however, you MUST OWN THE BOOK and bring it with you.  These patterns are not to be duplicated for others and are only for your own use.  If you would like to purchase the $35.00 book from me, please let me know so that I can send it to you or bring it to class.
