Pfaff Sewing Machine
Well, I finally got my new machine out to make some fabric post cards for our group Postmarkd'art. Just 6 left to do.. I will photo the others later. I read the instructions and thought " how hard can this be?" I have had a Pfaff for 20 years.. Well.... For some reason the thread in the bobbin kept getting cut.. So back to my old stand by,,, no time to mess with the newer machine.. and it has such wonderful stitches.. Guess I need lessons!
This is the Postmarkd'art leaf exchange with Cyanotype fabric, and the circles are made the same way. Found a rubber mat for the bottom of a sink and followed the process on the package! Trying to print the leaves from the plants before winter comes in for real.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
