Bags – Quilting arts and Patchwork

These patchwork bags have been made differently, both in which you can try at home.

bag-art-craft-batterick-mccalls-patternsbag-Patchwork-handbags-sewing-ideasYou can make this patchwork bag or use a Vogue pattern. Then you can block print on top of your fabric using our Colouricious printing blocks. This is because it makes it easier for you to centralise your block print after you have stitched the sewing pattern together. bag-sewing-patterns-art-craft-ideas

This bag was made by block printing with our Colouricious printing blocks onto the fabric and then the fabric sewn together to make the bag. We recommend you use our Colouricious fabric paint as they are easy to fix with a simple iron and they are machine washable so you can keep on using your bag!

Learn Thread Painting

Thread-Painting

Thread Painting is a special way to adorn and embellish you textile craft project. In effect, you are “painting on” images and designs onto your project. There are no set rules, just let your imagination go and “thread paint” away! Just treat your threads as paints and you will have a wonderful time adding that final unique touch to every project you make.

Whilst thread painting may look a challenge, it really isn’t. There are no special skills required and best of all no special sewing machine or any other tools are needed. Set your sewing machine up and get started. We have lots of wonderful videos showing you how to get started with Thread Painting. Go over to our website to watch them to understand more.

Click on the picture below to see all our videos on how to Thread Paint.

Lucy Garvin from Canada is a talented self-taught artist whose curiosity and passion for sewing, embellishing and anything fabric or fibre related, has led her to explore almost every technique worked with a threaded needle, both hand and machine. Lucy shares her passion for  hand and machine embellishment techniques through teaching.

The Colouricious  Creative Free Machine Embroidery DVD also has some fantastic ideas to help you learn thread painting and Gina Ferrari is as passionate as Lucy Garvin about this technique. You can buy this DVD by clicking on the image below and you will be taken to learn more about Creative Machine Embroidery. Thread painting is also called Free Motion Stitching and Free Machine Embroidery.

This is what Linda thought of the trip last year:

Dear Jamie and the whole team, just wanted to take a few moments to say thank you the holiday was more than I could have imagined in every way the hotels the transport the visits to cities and villages the range of textiles we saw, and those that we had the opportunity to try our hand at. I was speechless from day one (not true I had a lot to say) the sights the sounds and smells and nor forgetting the company of the group all of whom shared a common interest . Oh dear, it was all amazing and also life changing in so many ways, thank you all for your superb organisation and sharing your love of textiles and India……………….I will be back

Regards Linda

Textile Holidays

Our textile holidays are becoming more and more popular and we are pretty much at full occupancy for the next two trips. You can see all of the textile holidays we have planned for 2015 here and we regularly update each holiday with details of the number of spaces available. Check the holiday you are interested and act quickly if you want one of the remaining places.

We currently have one place left on our incredible trip to Bhutan in September this year. It is the first time we have ever visited this secretive country and as they strictly control the number of visitors they allow each year, this really will be trip of a lifetime.
