Classes with Jayne Brogan • Educational, G, 13-Mar-2022
In this episode of The Makers Studio, we meet Dionne Swift. She is an artist, tutor, and author who exhibits internationally. She creates dynamic stitched textiles using a vibrant mix of threads, colours, and textures. Discover more about Dionne, her motivations and her approach to projects.
In this video, you will learn how to use free motion embroidery to create a range of patterns, textures, tones, and shades.
It’s riveting to watch Dionne demonstrate how your needle can become a pen and the thread your ink.
Industry experts Jayne Brogan (Janome technical expert and Regional Manager) and Valerie Nesbitt (Quilting expert and Founder of justhands-on.tv) will join us for a round table chat about the finished project.
