Follow the Thread: A New Approach to Free-Motion Quilting

Loosen up and explore new territory with line and stitch in this free-motion quilting workshop taught by Paula Kovarik. Students will learn to focus on the character of line and personal symbols through simple drawing and observation exercises. You will translate line to thread, develop techniques to accept the imperfect, accelerate ideas, and stitch from the imagination. Student exercises provide new tools for seeing, interpreting, and completing concept-driven work. With a focus on generating ideas through research and observation, you will build your stitching vocabulary and trust the thread to tell your story. Open to all skill levels; free-motion quilting experience a plus.
