Let's do a little Thread Weaving!

So... a couple of months ago I attended a Sulky convention, and was able to become a "Sulky Certified" teacher.  Yay!  Anyway, while there, I learned so many fabulous things, one being "thread weaving."  Thread weaving is the process by where threads are weaved in and out of the fabric - you can see how this intricate process actually lifts the white background surrounding the Loralie Lady.  I just couldn't wait to come home, and teach this project.

At the convention this project actually came in a kit; but, I was able to have Sally's Fabrics order the fabrics - each coming from the "Sew Fabulous" line of Loralie Designs. 

Because I wanted to "master" the technique I have created yet another design below. Sorry, for the poor focus, but if you look closely, you will see the white fabric lifted around the lady, but her dress remains "uncut."

Thread Weaving isn't too difficult, but as you can see, it totally makes the project.  I would highly recommend signing up and coming to the class to be held sometime towards the end of June, beginning of July.  I would love to see all of you there!

Let me introduce myself :)

Hi - my name is Pat Miller, and I have been machine embroidering and crafting for many years.  I currently own a Pfaff 5.5 Creative Vision (love it!), and teach around the East Valley in Arizona.  I enjoy participating in craft shows, but  specifically teach embroidery labs, embroidery techniques, and various other sewing projects in a "classroom" setting at Sally's Fabrics in Mesa, Arizona.  I am both a 5D certified (Pfaff embroidery software,) and Sulky certified teacher.
Now, please, follow along and see what we will be working on next!
