    Do you have a favorite photo of your pet you want to turn into a work of art? Award-winning quilter Barbara Yates Beasley can teach you a low-tech pattern design technique that, when combined with raw-edged appliqué, can turn any photograph into a fun and eye-catching quilt. This day and a half class will have you well on the way to creating your own work of art that you can then finish quilting at home.
       If pets are not your area of interest bring a photo of a flower or other object. Think Georgia O’Keeffe size flower.
            Please be aware that this needs to be your own photo or one that you have been given permission to use. It is NOT OK to grab your favorite photo from the internet. Those photos do belong to an artist and you need to ask permission before using them as inspiration.             
      This workshop is limited to 8 students to ensure each students gets plenty of private instruction with Barb.
    See Barbara's web site for more inspiration!            
       http://www.barbarayatesbeasley.com/
     Prep Work: Before the class, pick a favorite photo of your animal. It should be clear and sharp with a good value range. The animal should fill the frame. If the eyes are an important part of the photo be sure you can actually see them. Keep it simple.
              Have this enlarged to the size you would like to work with, but no more than 19” x 24”. The enlargement is best in color. You can use a B&W as long as you don’t loose detail in the shadows of the B&W image. Be sure to bring a color copy, any size if your enlargement is B&W.
              Enlargements can be done at Kinko’s, Staples, Office Max, Walgreens, Costco that type of store. Often you will have better luck getting a clear print if you bring a hi-res file to the store on a thumb drive .

                   • Assorted fabric scraps. Bring more then you think you need and in a variety of colors. Nothing over a fat quarter in size.

You'll come away with a head full of knowledge, a sample book, and a reversible tote! This class allows you to transition into any of our Fascination classes. 
     
    You will get to know the functions and threading of your sewing machine, discuss basic stitches, various tools of the trade, plus all of the basics you need to know about fabrics, marking, pinning, cutting and pressing by making a fun reversible tote bag!
     
    This class focuses primarily on the “nuts and bolts” of sewing. We highly recommend completion of this course before enrolling in any other classes at Textiles West Thread Lab if you have never sewn before.
    You CAN do this, we have confidence in you!
     
    Machines: We are able to provide a sewing machine for you to use in the Thread Lab, but many students prefer to learn on their own machine and we welcome you to bring your machine from home. If you do bring your own machine, please remember that it must be in excellent working condition and you will also need to bring the manual, accessories, and power cord/foot pedal. We are not able to spend class time troubleshooting machine problems.
