Machine Drawn Appliquéd Characters


1 Day Workshop

Sat, 18th May, 2019

10:00am - 4:00pm

In this workshop you will learn some of the techniques Janine uses to draw and write onto fabric. She will show you how, and help you to draw and design your own panels which you can then use for quilts, bags, cushions or pictures. Her sewing style is very relaxed, easy and free and very quickly you will be able to achieve a lot. You can also experiment with some hand embellishing and embroidery and keep to a very neutral Scandinavian colour palette which she uses or create your own.
