Thread Painting

Just finished a workshop  for thread painting.  There was no specific designs or a project achieved in the class but  I had as much fun as the student in trying different possibilities.It was a open workshop with fun and play kind . Took five hours and still I was not as tired as I should have been.

Metallic thread  is a tough cookie and specially a cheep quality. But recently I have been trying all sorts of threads and not  getting  fooled by the drama my Bernina  machine creates in accepting them. I tried to fool the machine by making cheep thread   feel  good by mounting it up or dropping  it down to give it the extra weight age or pull it needs. It works:)

Taking a pencil sketching course can help a lot in thread painting.   I still have to finish a proper piece  for this workshop  which I have started and  hope it will not end up as a UFO.
