Quilted Landscapes class Feb. 9
MARSHALLTOWN - Explore using your basic sewing skills in a new way while creating a unique quilted landscape art piece in the Quilted Landscapes class! Instructor Debbie Poland will actually go through the process with you during this class and you will create a fabric art piece.
Debbie has been doing quilted landscapes for 3 years. They can take her 2 hours or two weeks, and it's so fun to see them take shape. In the last year she has been adding paints to her thread. This makes the landscapes look even more real and adds texture and depth to the picture.
Debbie will be instructing the Quilted Landscapes class on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm at Iowa Valley Continuing Education, 3702 S Center St, Marshalltown, room 614. Join this class and see how easy and simple creating quilted landscape can be. Debbie says “Warning! You may become addicted!”
For the Beginning Quilted Landscapes class please bring your sewing machine (feed dogs need to drop down), small scissors for fussy cutting, extra needles for your machine, one glue stick, and one can heavy spray starch. You will also need to bring two threads in the following colors: browns, black, rust, grays, dark greens, invisible, and white. You may want to bring a rotary cutter and mat, small iron and board, extension cord, power strip, and your sewing machine owner’s manual. Basic sewing skills will be necessary for this class and lunch break is on your own.
