Organic Needle-Turn Appliqué workshop
Appliqué and fastidious precision go hand in hand—or do they?
Popular appliqué motifs like flowers and fruit are imperfect in nature, and all the better for it! This workshop guides students at any level to become comfortable needle-turning and encourages an organic approach without sacrificing craftsmanship. Students will work on sample blocks for the All Seasons Pillows from my book, a design so organic that no pattern-marking is necessary; if time allows, we’ll explore the addition of similarly free-form hand embroidery.
- Time: Half or full day (3 or 6 hours)
