Into the Mix: Machine Embroidery & Heat Transfers

Explore the options of adding new depth, texture and contextual language into your compositions by incorporating embroidery and photographed imagery.  Visiting artist, Bonnie Peterson shares her skills for managing machine embroidery and heat transfers via power point lecture, samples of her work and step-by-step demonstrations. There will be time and materials for students to experience and practice working with some hand embroidery and heat transfer techniques.

Students are welcome to bring sewing machines equipped with either a free motion quilting foot or an embroidery foot for some additional hands-on experience. Class limited to first 18 registrants.
