Fantastic Fiber Collage

Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details:
Requirements: 1st class: Assorted fabrics in the theme you've chosen, using a variety of values, colors, and scale. (I will ask in class if you are willing to share. This gives everyone a greater variety of fabrics to use). Fat quarters are normally enough. Bring 4 or 5 fabrics for the background. The fabrics do not need to be washed, so you can choose fabrics during class also. small sharp scissors. I use the Karen Kay Buckley 4" scissors. Regular fabric scissors Clover 3/4"white head applique pins or you can use small 1" pins (at least 1 box, 2 might be needed) Flatter or Magic spray starch, if you wish to starch your fabric Iron and ironing mat Thin cotton batting 18" x 24" Backing fabric approx. 20" x 26" 1/2" foam core board from Hobby Lobby (thinner is ok if you can't get the 1/2".) 2nd class: sewing machine, with extra needles and bobbins supreme slider for free motion quilting is highly recommended darning foot or free motion presser foot assorted threads for machine clear vinyl the size of your wall-hanging fine tip dry erase marker Addition to supply list: Your fabric selections will begin with an idea. The inspiration could come from a special interest such as gardening, a life event, a color spectrum or even a scrap of fabric that you find interesting. It can be realistic, whimsical, or fantasy. You can start with a fabric that has a large motif to establish the theme you want and to help with color selection.? With your selections remember to vary the size (large, medium, and small) of the motifs and prints, and to vary the value (dark, medium and light). Choose fabrics that you like, even if they aren't "supposed to go together". If there is any doubt, bring them :-) Do not limit yourself to coordinating or matching fabrics, variety is the key. We will learn to be fearless! Remember, in addition to learning we need to have fun. If there is anything that needs to be added, we have a whole store full of choices. I don't recommend a lot of batiks for motifs. They work wonderfully for backgrounds and fillers, but you will probably want some commercial fabrics like cotton, home dec and other fabrics not to tightly woven. Please make sure that your sewing machine has the capability to drop the feed dogs.
