Fabric Play | Collage & Free Motion Quilting
Arts & DIY
Make fabric collage art while learning how to use fusible web to applique, then practice playing with the free motion quilting foot to add texture to your creation!
The first time I did this process I remembered the joy of cutting things out with my scissors. It was a simple pleasure that made me giggle. You'll then spend time creating your piece, placing your cutouts here, there, move them around, and then experience that AHA! moment where you'll iron them down to stay. And then! you'll create a quilt sandwich to practice using a free motion quilting foot to quilt designs that will add texture to your piece.
You'll leave with a 10-inch by 10-inch square of your own personal collage.
Basic sewing knowledge, how to change a bobbin, some knowledge of using a free motion quilting foot if you would like to add quilting texture to your creation.

I have a mission! I want to bring people together to create, and grow a collective of curious creatives and artists in arms who wish to share their passion for making and hand crafting beautiful things for the pure joy of it.
Just this December, a dream came true for me. I now have a space to call home for all of my passions. It's a boutique fabric nook and makerspace in RiNo, where I host all my classes, sell amazing modern fabric, beads, and jewelry. Come see us at 3327 Brighton Blvd. Denver, CO 80216. (Hours are posted on the website.)
As far as my creativity philosophy goes, I believe all art comes from the soul, the architect, and the hands and eyes are the builders for those inspired ideas. When we make I get lost in the process and drop all judgements and lock away the inner critic, allowing myself to simply play. Altogether, I am a fabric, quilt, music, bead and jewelry enthusiast, but I want to gather makers of all arts to inspire, support each other, and share. I'd love to build a creative community, and bring together others who have a passion for making things. I also sing, play a few instruments, and write inspiring songs with my darling songstress sisters, the Leaders of the Heart and Starling, in Denver and Boulder. I hope to join forces in creative bliss.
