What is Sewing Illustration?

It's a perfectly imperfect technique for applique and thread embellishment mastered by artist Minki Kim. Essentially, you use your sewing machine to “draw” outlines and add details to your fabric creations lending a sketchbook, one-of-a-kind look.
Discover a window into Minki's creative sewing world by following her on Instagram @zeriano or visit her blog minkikim.com  She believes, like many of us quilters, that "...taking time to sew, even if just for a few stolen moments here and there - at the park, at the pool or at my sewing machine - provides me with the energy to tackle the rest of my day with a smile." Her joy in stitching is evident in everything she creates!

Are you up for the challenge? We can't wait to give it a try! Come give it a shot at our Drawing with Thread class Thursday, September 19th, 1:00 - 4:00pm! Shelley Taylor has put together a cute little practice project and is ready to give you the know-how so you can experiment with your own thread drawings. In this class you will make a simple pin cushion and add whimsical details using the Sew Illustrated book by Minki Kim as your guide. Once you get started, you won’t want to stop adding illustrations to your bags, quilt labels, feature blocks, gifts... the possibilities are endless!
