Details
  • Fabrics: high-quality cotton commercial prints, hand-dyes, and batiks, washed (without fabric softener) to remove sizing
  • Threads: lightweight cotton thread (I use mostly Aurifil Cotton Mako 40 and 50.)
  • Stabilizer (I use Pellon® 100% polyester sew-in interfacing #910 or Heavy Weight Shaping Aid. Use a fairly stiff nonwoven interfacing; flimsy, flexible interfacings will not work.)
  • Fusible product with at least one paper side (I use Lite Steam-A-Seam 2® by The Warm™ Company.)
  • Pins: straight quilting pins and “pregnant” quilter’s pins (the ones with the bump in them)
  • Needles: Universal 80/12 or Microtex 70/10
  • Sewing machine that can drop its feed dogs, and that has a free-motion quilting or darning foot with a large open area

Optional

  • Helpful tools: Grabaroo’s® Gloves, Supreme Free-Motion Slider™, Quilt Halo, finger cots

Master Machine Review by Carol Kamin

Different ideas are presented here than the usual "thread painting" and I plan on trying them. Explains things very clearly. I doubt that I will use photos in the same way but never the less there are lots of interesting ideas. I do wish, for all of these DVDs, that the video editors would turn down the noise of the sewing machine so it's easier to hear the voice over it. If she uses a mike for these portions, it should be easy to do.

Great value Review by judy alexander

Susan does a great job of sharing her techniques. QA has also done a great job of making this DVD easy to watch and learn from. I would recommend this if you want to learn more about thread sketching.
