Open Registration: 15--18 Oct 2021 - Over-Stitching Ribbon Motifs

 NOTICE: If you have completed the Basic Crazy Quilt Course (BCQC-101) in the past...then, you are eligible to register for this course. It would be helpful to you to also have finished the BCQC-102 and Beyond the Basics Courses...but they are not mandatory requirements.

Over-Stitching Ribbon Motifs  (Intermediate level)

   Open for Registration 15-18 Oct 2021

Course Synopsis:

This is primarily a Silk Ribbon Embroidery course. The embroidery work includes some fibers, along with the silk ribbon, to create semi-realistic floral arrangements. These designs are beyond the traditional basic Silk Ribbon Embroidery Motifs of roses and leaves. Rather, clusters of daisies, berries, wild roses, pomegranate, and fantasy flowers will be printed (or traced) on to fabric and over-stitched to bring these to life in ribbon. A parasol lady will be embroidered to include a silk ribbon skirt for her outfit. Each motif design can be printed directly to fabric (or traced) and will use different widths of silk ribbon to complete. White ribbon can be used for all designs (and then ink to color these) if you do not have an extensive supply of colors/widths in the ribbon. Fantasy flowers can use any type of ribbon, saving on the use of the silks.  Designs will be printed directly to fabric (or traced) and then stitched over using primarily silk ribbon. The last task will allow use of other types of ribbons (satin, organza, velvet, craft, etc.).

(Note: This class is re-designed from portions of the prior ICQC-105 Course taught 2019/2020)

5) For those of you having taken courses in the past...please note that the above email address for courses/classes is NEW; so add it to your contact list. Thank You.


Registration is open only on 15, 16, 17 and 18 Oct (Central Standard Time). No late registrations will be accepted.

Classes are free, no fees or special purchases are necessary. These classes do require a laptop & printer so you can get the patterns/instructions downloaded and printed easily. Therefore I do recommend you register if these are not readily available to you. 

FYI: I do not own an "iphone" nor print using a can provide zero "technical support" to you if you choose to register using these instruments.

All of my courses are taught via Blogspot (each is a unique private blog for posting photos of your finished homework). So, experience in "blogging" is helpful...but I can walk you though the minimal instructions needed for the course, even if you have never "blogged" before. Just be prepared to be patient...and have a few back/forth emails until we work things out.
