Joanne Sharpe

Fear not, it's all the rage, an itch to stitch! Spend the whole class time on your sewing machine to explore free motion sewing techniques to create a colorful, mini art quilt stitch sampler. Learn the physical motion and movement of fabric under a sewing machine needle. Use colorful threads to create simple designs and shapes. Get lost in organic moving lines, dimensional textured curves and Joanne's playful imagery created on a sewing machine. If you can doodle, you can do this. No drawing experience required, really! This will be the beginning of a new obsession creating textile art unique to YOU. You're going to love this!
