SPECIAL PRESENTATION at APRIL MEETING, April 4 2017, 6:30 pm, SWIRCA Ivy Room
You will be wowed by our April meeting. Raintree will present Karen Linduska. Karen studied art at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, IL majoring in fiber arts. She still lives in southern Illinois and works full-time as a fiber artist, author and teacher. Her work is stunning and fascinating. She has received many awards for her work which has been exhibited in publications, on TV, at art fairs, galleries and private commissions across the U.S., Japan and Europe. Check out a sampling below and see much more on her website: karenlinduska.com
Ever wonder what to do with all those special fancy stitches on your sewing machine? Karen Linduska has evolved the specialty of decorative stitch thread painting. It is the subject of her April presentation to us. She will show examples of the steps of her process, as well as how to alter the stitches available on your machine. She will give ideas how to use different stitches. Her presentation will include examples of her students work and will also have samples of her own work. Whether you've tried thread painting, or just despaired of ever finding a use for all those strange stitches, you'll enjoy this special meeting!
