Coloring Your Embroidery

Watch your fabric and quilts come to life using colored pencils.  You will learn the technique to color and shade your fabric or quilted piece to give it a 3-dimensional look.  We will use a special medium to permanently set your color.  Each student can choose the pattern you want to work on in class.  Crabapple Hill has a great variety of patterns that work well.  Once you have painted your design, you can then hand embroider around the design to really add dimension and depth.  Or not; these can also be stand-alone pieces on their own.  

We will be starting a new hand embroidery block of the month in April, and this is a great technique to learn and then apply to that project.  

About the teacher:  Catherine is an artist at heart and has practiced her skills for many years.  She discovered the joys of quilting in her friend's quilt shop.  It was a natural progression for her to combine her art with quilting.  In 2008 she began teaching to share her skills with others.  In 2015, Catherine was honored to have a challenge quilt published in Quilting Arts Magazine.  We are delighted to have Catherine join our teaching staff and are sure you will enjoy learning from her.
