    Technique Stitching
    Customer Reviews (3)
    Looking forward
    I enjoyed learning this technique. I needed to purchase some supplies. They arrived yesterday. Review by Michele (Posted on 1/17/2016)
    Inspirational for all types of art.
    This was an exciting video because the techniques that were demonstrated could be used in so many situations. I especially liked the way she turned a simple watercolor into a vibrant work of fun art. She demonstrated a number of ways to enhance the basic piece. She made it so clear that I felt that anyone could produce the same results with a little practice. Review by Judith King (Posted on 6/7/2011)
    Stitch Imagery: From Photo to Fabric Fun Download (Video Download) EP1419
    I am so happy with this video! Kelli Perkins is a wonderful teacher. Each step in the process of making an adorable piece of art is clearly explained and shown in this video. And, you end up with two pieces of artwork that can be the basis for many more since you take a photo and save it to your PC. You scan your painted cloth and save it too, making future art work fast and easy to play with. She shows many easy paper and cloth techniques and uses vibrant color which delights the eye. There's collage, painting, stamping, free motion machine embroidery, foiling and great ideas for embellishing art work that has the hand of the artist built into it even though it starts out by using camera. I never tire of watching this video as it inspires me over and over again. Review by Adrian Kronberg (Posted on 2/14/2011)
