Threadwork Unraveled a few years ago which is a compendium of everything you need to know about that most essential of quilting notions - thread! Sarah's passion for threads and stitching shows through in this book and her DVD.
This DVD from Interweave is all about recreating textile work from your own photos using tiny cutout pieces of fabric, paint and threadwork. This is a technique I must admit I have always been in awe of. But it is never too late to learn and Sarah is very honest and generous in giving credit to other teachers who had helped her in this journey.
I think it is wonderful how we can take bits and pieces from others and then develop our own style and Sarah definitely has done this. I learnt many little tricks and tips in this workshop and am really inspired to give it a try. I always think if you learn one thing in a workshop you are ahead so I know I am well ahead now. I love her enthusiasm in even the little things like rotary cutters.
Sarah starts the DVD showing you everything you need to follow her techniques and I will admit it all looked a little daunting at first BUT as she started going through everything I realised that I had it all anyway! There was nothing I needed to rush out and buy - I maybe have to go and raid the kitchen though.
