Zen and the Art of Free Form Fiberscapes

Marjan Kluepfel
Fri. June 11, 1:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Class Type:
Domestic Machine Quilting
Machine(s): Sewing Machine required

You will create a free form fabric collage wall hanging using many different surface design techniques and fabric manipulation. Find out how relaxing and liberating it is when you don't have to follow rules or measure anything. Learn about essential design principles to make a beautiful fantasy view or use one of my patterns ($10 each). You will learn how to make multi-fabric tree trunks and fiber lace using Sulky Solvy water soluble stabilizer, fused appliqué, free-motion machine embroidery and thread painting, bobbin drawing and couching, and embellishing with Angelina, Textiva and foil.

Kit/handout Fee: None
Kit includes:

Student supply list: : Lots of small pieces (fat quarter size) of landscape fabrics (browns, greens and sky).
Bring at least 2 light-, 4 medium-, and 2 dark brown fabrics for the tree trunks. I prefer batiks and hand-dyes.
Hand-dyed fabrics will be available for sale in class, $22/yard.
Embellishments (green and brown threads and yarns).
3 yards of fusible web (with paper backing) such as Wonder Under or Steam-a-Seam.
Water soluble stabilizer (available for sale in class);
Teflon pressing sheet, paper, sharpie & pencil, fabric glue stick.
Sewing supplies including scissors, pins, machine embroidery threads; rotary cutter and mat, (small iron).
A sewing machine in good working order. It doesn’t have to be a fancy machine as long as you can either lower or cover the feed dogs for free-motion embroidery and quilting (darning foot).

SEWING MACHINES ARE NOT PROVIDED. Bring your own machine in good working order, pedal and cord.

Package & Sewing machine storage is available temporarily and overnight, free of charge at the show information desk inside the Convention Center located on the second floor of the hotel.
