Designing One of a Kind Wearable Art

Have you been thinking about making a jacket or vest that is distinctly “yours”?  If so, come to the Fibre Arts Festival on October 14 and take the Designing One of a Kind Wearable Art  with Kathy Tidswell. Sewers and Quilters at all levels are welcome. In addition to learning hints on the types of patterns to choose, you will learn embellishment techniques such as lace cutwork, bobbin work, trapunto, arranging appliqués and methods for attaching appliqués. Information will be shared on types of batting or you may choose not to quilt. I often make vests and outfits with just appliqué or appliqué and cutwork. Come learn some new techniques. Samples will be produced using free motion embroidery on a regular zigzag sewing machine and some work on individual pieces will be started.  For more information visit www.kathytidswell.com or contact Kathy at 506-363-3560 or email [email protected]

Would you like to create realistic images of flowers or birds totally from thread? If so come to the Fibre Arts Festival on October 15 and take the Creating With Thread from KathyTidswell. You will learn to drop the feed dogs on your regular zigzag sewing machine and create beautiful pieces that can be used in quilts, artworks, cards and wearable art.  In this class, you can choose to make flowers or birds but once learned the method can be used to make your own creations.
