Creative Stitching Bootcamp: Advanced Course with Linda V. Hubbard

In this concentrated, immersive workshop you will create at least one landscape or other design, either abstract or realistic, utilizing one or more free-motion stitching techniques, including Thread Sketching, Thread Painting or Textural, Dimensional or Structural Stitching.

Plan and complete these projects while perfecting your stitching skill level. Work on projects featuring or combining one or more of the above stitching techniques. Learn more about using materials such as dissolvable Solvy (often used in creating 3D effects) and other supplies used in non-traditional stitched projects. Immerse yourself in improvisational stitching, design techniques, best practices and developing a project plan from idea to implementation including what process and/or technique will best fit your concept (for example such as whether to use High-loft batting, Trapunto, Mock-Trapunto or Boutis techniques to create the Dimensional effect you are imagining).

This project-oriented workshop will be the next step in developing your free-motion stitching skills after taking the Creative Stitching Bootcamp: Basic Training course or if you already have some solid free-motion quilting/stitching experience it will provide you the opportunity to further develop those skills and explore new techniques. Lastly, learn about simple finishing techniques for your projects if time allows.
