Caren Betlinski Thread Painting Class


The Caren Betlinski Thread Painting class was a wonderful day spent learning an interesting technique! Caren's kit contained all the prepared surfaces for us to practice the free motion "painting" and all the components for students to move along in creating their own composition of the Black Eyed Susan's. The top picture is Caren's piece.

At least 1/2 the class had fused their images onto the background by the end of the day. Part of Caren's instruction was how to add the accent fabric to the background to really make the piece our own.


Each of us were given the same pattern and each one is different! I look forward to seeing these in Show n' Tell!
Thank you Caren for all the preparation for this successful class!

The program for September will be a lecture from Pat Pauly.
Pat is a member of RAFA (Rochester Area Fiber Artists) and GVQC (Genesee Valley Quilt Club). Expect exuberance!
In October we will welcome Sharon Stroud.
A workshop to learn her fussy cut Dresden Plate will follow the meeting.
