Thread Painting a Chickadee - Beta Course

Course Launch Date: September 1st, 2022

Limited seats for the Beta Course 

Be among the first to take this new online course offered by Bridget O'Flaherty. Learn the basics of thread painting with step-by-step instructions and videos to help you create this sweet chickadee. You will be asked to complete a survey at the end of the course to offer your feedback and help refine the course to be the best offering for a beginner to learn to thread paint. Thanks for being part of the development stage!

The beginner thread painting series are patterns that will get you comfortable with thread painting and give you practice time at the machine. You will come away with a sweet little bird that you can use as an embellishment, finished artwork or integrate it into a sampler quilt of all the beginner patterns!

What people say about it

In addition to the excellent instruction and guidance she provided, I really appreciated seeing Bridget’s own work. In her own creations and in the patterns that she designs, she shows a fine-grained appreciation of the beauty of the natural world around her. That aesthetic sensibility infused the whole workshop. For someone like me, who loves the beauty of the natural world but who struggles to find ways to express that sense of wonder in my sewing, this workshop gave me hope that I can find a way to do that.
