Etched In Thread By Ally
I have been thread painting for about twelve years, which I found through my work as a quilter. Thread painting is the art of using the needle of a domestic sewing machine in a free motion mode, using two types of stitches. The artist uses the needle as you would a pen or pencil. I use three types of methods:
1) I take a photo then print on special treated fabric then embellish with thread giving it a 3D look
2) I use fabric and build a background then embellish.with thread to build the rest of the picture.
3) I paint the background then thread paint to create the scene.
