NEEDLEFELTING WITH THE EMBELLISHER MACHINE
The Embellisher (Baby Lock) or needle felting machine is a wonderful and versatile tool for the contemporary fiber artist. Using only barbed needles, it can “paint” a picture with fiber or fabric; collage layers of material and fuse them into a single fabric; distort a fabric into a sculptural form; “sew” small pieces of fabric together to create a larger piece … the list could be endless. Priscilla Lynch will demonstrate many of the techniques and illustrate with numerous samples and finished work just some of the possibilities of needle felting and the Embellisher machine. There will be materials available for attendees to try some hand and machine needle felting.
