Machine Embroidery

Monday so it's machine embroidery class in Norwich with Sheila Ford. She is an excellent tutor who has super original ideas, an is always very well prepared. In fact we heard this morning that her stitched textiles C&G course is so successful that the centre has been awarded its status and this makes things cheaper for the students... Hooray!

I really enjoy these classes as it is not the sort of thing I do normally so it's a complete change, time off if you like, although I certainly work hard there. 

Today we were making a sampler based on the designs in Klimt's paintings; working on black velevet using some of the techniques from the class we had with Angie Hughes  - sweetie foils on bondaweb, transfer foils, applique and machine quilting through a voile to stop the stitches sinking into the velvet.
And for once mine was finished with the voile burnt away with a heat gun:
