About the Event
Learn how to turn focus fabrics into art! Have you always loved those brightly printed fabrics, but just don't quite know how to use them? Let your creativity loose and play with gorgeous fabrics to create a fabulous fabric collage, then add another layer of creativity by adding free-motion thread embroidery on top. We promise that you'll get addicted to playing with fabric this way! Vanina will also share her technique for working without using fusibles or glues.
In this class you will learn all the steps and techniques to create a fabric collage including:
- Transferring the initial design - choose between a skull, butterfly, or bring your own design to work with
- Working with focus fabrics
- How to place fabrics without using glues or interfacing
- Free-motion embroidery
When your collage piece is finished, you can turn it into a wall hanging, pillow, patch for a jacket or quilt, or whatever your heart desires!

About the Instructor:
Vanina Doce-Mood has been sewing and creating since she was a teenager, but didn’t start quilting until she was pregnant with her daughter, 9 years ago. She fell in love with it and hasn’t stopped making quilts since then! She loves bright colors and mismatching patterns, and the endless possibilities textiles offer. She lives in a red house in Oakland with her husband and daughter, a dog, a cat, a fish and 4 chickens. When she's not sewing, you can find her on the dance floor of different Bay Area locations teaching dance to kids and adults.
