I'm so excited to tell you about my STITCHED workshop!

Branches, Buds and Blossoms: A Botanical Fabric Collage

Join me in exploring botanical shapes, textures and patterns! I’ll share my process for creating a collage incorporating fabric, machine and hand stitching, and a variety of unexpected materials and techniques. You’ll choose your own fabrics, compose an original design and experiment with layers of detail. I’ll teach ways to add personal design to your fabrics with painted patterns. We’ll use simple construction techniques, then enhance your collage with a variety of unusual materials and interesting embellishments. Plus, I’ll share tons of fun embroidery stitches to add more detail. 

STITCHED is a collection of 20 online video workshops by 20 talented fabric artists. (That's right, I'm just ONE of the instructors for STITCHED.) 

What are the other workshops?
There are workshops on fabric flower making, creating journals and other books, needle turn applique, handbags, and many more mixed media projects involving fabric and stitching! Click here to read about all 20 workshops.

How is STITCHED set up:

The workshops are available to you any time you wish throughout all of 2012. Once you are invited to the private STITCHED site, you are free to view and work on any workshop you want any time of the day, any day of the week. (I can't wait to take some of the workshops myself!)

Edited on December 12 to add...
I just announced a give-away for the first 10 students who register for STITCHED through my blog. Check out this post for more information.

Here are a few more images of my fabric collage! I can't even tell you how excited I am to share this project through this amazing workshop collection.
