Follow The Thread

October 21, 2018 – October 27, 2018

Paula Kovarik

Loosen up and explore new territory with line and stitch in this free-motion quilting workshop. During class students will focus on the character of line and personal symbols through simple drawing and observation exercises. You will translate line to thread and develop techniques to accept the imperfect, accelerate ideas and stitch from the imagination. Exercises provide new tools for seeing, interpreting and completing concept-driven work. Participants will build their stitching vocabulary by focusing within and playing with possibilities. You will trust the thread to tell your story. Open to all skill levels, however free-motion quilting experience a plus.
