Learn all the tips and tricks to bring free motion yarn couching to life on your domestic sewing machine or longarm. Bethanne spends equal time demonstrating this art form on both styles of machines with a deep discussion of types of yarn, stabilizers, and techniques to use yarn couching in your creative life. Begin class learning to manipulate the yarn as classic free motion quilting. Learn stitches and textures that will help you explore more advanced projects, such as replacing appliqué on quilts. Advance to using yarn couching as a pictorial art form, using a lovely floral pattern as a learning tool. Try your hand at making free standing appliqué motifs for use in both quilts and garments and explore using yarn couching on home decor objects, with bee, bird, and koi designs.
This class includes (anticipated) 2:10 hours of long play video discussion, demonstration, and endless tips and tricks to be successful, using both styles of sewing machine. In addition, each purchase will come with a downloadable and printable class companion workbook (anticipated 15-25 pages), with additional full color images, discussion, and patterns for class projects. The download content will be delivered via email when the DVD is ready to ship, (estimated late July).
