Paint with Thread

You've probably seen those fancy sewing machines that allow you to make embroidered designs. In this beginner's-level course, I'll show you how to create your own free-motion embroidery in a technique called "thread painting." Instead of using paints and inks, I'll show you the basics of how to use thread to make painterly fabric art.

Fabric Collage Postcards

More About NanetteSewZ

My name is Nanette S. Zeller. All of my life I have been studying art and nature, and exploring the creative use of textiles.

I am an award winning artist who has been featured on Quilting Arts TV (season 2400 & 2500) and in internationally syndicated publications (e.g., Quilting Arts, Fiber Art Now, & Quilts and More magazines). My artworks have also been selected into recognizable exhibits including, Sacred Threads and International Quilt Festival (Houston, TX and Long Beach, CA). I am a member of SAQA (Studio Art Quilts Associates) and S.E.W. (Society of Embroidered Work)

In 2010, I began developing my own artistic voice incorporating
surface design painting techniques, free-form machine stitching, and
other innovative methods into my work. I create original art pieces
which are referred to as art quilts. My style has evolved through a
life-long creative exploration which is deeply influenced by my love of
nature. I love to create Naturescapes!

I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you through my online classes. Let's continue our artistic journey's together.
