Down in the Apple Orchard Thread Painting
This easy & fun thread painting class is created very differently than most thread painting... It's created "Off" the fabric, then attached to your fabric once it's totally finished. This is a technique that I myself, created several years ago.
Fluttering Hearts of Elegance
Trapunto is a brilliant technique that'll make your quilts really "POP" & come to life It's so much simpler than you could imagine. Within this on-line course I first step you through the single design then the larger design is just a bigger version
Hello, I’m Rose Lewis, & I absolutely love teaching my many different & varied quilting techniques to lovely people just like yourself, all around the world.
I love helping students explore & develop their own personal inner talents & passions that have often been hidden within them, often unknown to them. I like to instil an awareness & awaken them into a new way of looking at what they’re creating. I bring with me a huge amount of contiguous enthusiasm, creativeness & inspiration.
I first started sewing on my mother’s treadle sewing machine many years ago. I went on to sew my clothes, then my children’s clothes, curtains, hemming & mending. In approx 1984 patchwork came to Australia, so a new journey begun. I’ve sewn many techniques over the years, but I specialise in applique that looks like needleturn but is all sewn on the sewing machine, trapunto, thread painting, fabric painting & other brilliant techniques.
I’ve won many awards & ribbons over the years and been up in the running for Best of Australia several times, I’ve taught in-person classes in many parts of Australia, I written for one of the biggest quilting magazines in the UK, having my own regular pages as well as doing some feature articles for quite a while. I’ve also been featured in many quilting & country style magazines & I’ve been interviewed live on ABC country radio several times. I’ve been guest artist & speaker at many quilting shows & events and also written several books….and the list keeps growing.
I love teaching & inspiring people just like yourself, with my creativeness, inspiration & enthusiasm. So, come & join me on this journey of learning with me through on-line classes, even if you’re a beginner & you’ll feel like I’m sitting right beside you in your sewing room. Be inspired, Be creative.
I love the look of your trapunto but feel it may be very difficult.
The way that I create trapunto is much easier than you may have ever thought, and it's also fun seeing your piece of fabric "come to life".
Do I need lots of special tools etc, to be able to create trapunto quilting?
Only a couple of things, the main things being the type of thread & the type of wadding used & also your scissors can make a difference.
Will I be able to contact you if I feel I need to ask more questions?
Most definitely. My instructions are clear & I show you very clear steps all the way through, but Yes, I'm happy for you to contact me.
