Class Description: Delight your loved ones with custom-sewn portraits of their furry friends this holiday season! Learn the fundamental skills of translating a photo of a beloved pet into a keepsake embroidery, choosing between a dog or cat model for your sample piece. In this class, local fiber arts enthusiast Liz Vowles will teach you the secrets of manipulating your embroidery floss to achieve detail and texture even with just one thread color. She will show you step-by-step how to read your reference photo, outline your piece, go in with detailed stitchwork to make the piece really pop, and finish your hoop. All materials for this class will be provided, along with extra supplies to prepare you to create your own custom piece at home. Attendees will each receive a bonus $10 gift card to one of the shops or restaurants at Valley Fair for their next visit!
About the Instructor: Liz has cultivated a lifelong love for fiber arts ever since learning how to knit at age 7. Her recent emphasis on threadpainted embroidery has served as a departure from her anxious, analytical tendencies, tapping into a free-form mode of creation.
