Deborah Weir will be teaching a one day embellisher class in her Palos Verdes studio on January 7th. She only needs about three more students to make it go. It is best if students have their own machine but one or two can use hers if necessary ($75 to use hers, $65 if they bring their own). The class will be from 10-4 and includes lunch. It will cover using the embellisher with both felt and wool to build up layers, creating cut out sections, comparing how the different fabrics respond, using hooped dress/quilt weight cottons using the machine for the equivalent of raw edge appliqué - a much quicker, more nimble method, experimenting with a wide range of textiles (ribbon, yarn, chiffons, etc.) to see how they are altered when run through the embellisher, working back and front to develop shading, exploring the machine’s capacity to secure previously stitched fabrics and using the embellisher to create a ground cloth for further stitching. Among MUCH else. She will send out a supply list when students sign up. To sign up contact her at 310 325-1895 FiberFly@cox.net www.DeborahWeir.net FiberFly.blogspot.com
