About the Event
Connect your hand with your creative spirit. Explore different methods of stitching, using a plethora of colorful, thin and thick threads onto a lovely swatch of fabric. You will learn to stitch, fray, weave, and knot, allowing your hands to connect with the moment. The stitches covered in class can be used for embroidery, hand quilting and to stitch down layered fabrics. Build your skills to add decorative touches to garments, quilts or art projects.
Slow Stitching shares a connection with the traditions found in the making and mending of Japanese Boro and the quilting seen in Indian Kantha. It can lead to beautiful artwork while allowing you to let go of the stress and anxiety of our world. Be mindful and enjoy the creative energy that comes from busy (busy slow) hands.
This is the final class in a series to create a one of a kind, beautifully handcrafted fabric book that can be used as a slow-stitch journal or sampler, a children's book of texture and color, or an art book filled with your own compositions. You will gain ideas on how to embellish clothes, textiles, quilts or incorporate in your very own fabric book. You can sign up for each of the classes individually or save by signing up for The Making of a Fabric Book which includes all three classes. Whatever you choose, you'll enjoy a creative and fun-filled time.
