Threadpainting the picture.

It's taken a little while to get this video up… It's not fancy but explains the technique a little.

    Hi Pam,
    I love the video – such a good way to show us what you are doing with your threadpainting.

    That was just a fantastic video of your process. It answered a lot of my questions about how you accomplish your method. And I can see that foot making a big difference since I have a foot that does bounce around and makes free motion harder. Thank you for sharing. I think the Buddha is going to be wonderful with the diamond patterned background. Can’t wait to see the finished piece!

    Hello Pam,
    You are delightful. I so enjoy your video and love the sound of your sweet voice.
    Thank you for sharing so very much of yourself and all you do with the rest of us.
    You are indeed an inspiration on the grandest level.
    I plan to use your techniques in my own thread painting.

  4. Pam…I enjoyed you video but I’d like to ask you a question. You said you took it into your photo editing software, changed it to a painting and then printed it onto fabric. Did you print it onto the blue or print it onto something else and then fuse it to the blue or what? I’ve done a lot of free motion stitching but would like to know how you got it to this point. Thanks!

    Jan, I printed it onto plain cream fabric with fusible on the back. The I cut around the image and ironed it to the blue.
    Hope this helps.
