Draw, Trace, Stitch! Workshop with Rebecca Ringquist

  • Fabric Depot 700 Southeast 122nd Avenue Portland, OR, 97233 United States (map)

Students of any drawing level are invited to join Rebecca Ringquist for this full-day workshop exploring drawing techniques for machine embroidery. We will warm up by sketching on paper using blind contour techniques, drawing from both life and memory.    After an hour or so of fast drawings on paper, we will move on to translating these techniques into drawing with needles and thread.  A variety of transfer techniques will be demonstrated and employed.  Emphasis will be on experimentation and fast sample making.  If you have been looking for a way to loosen up and add imagery and meaning to your quilts, this is your class!
