Digital Thread Painting Event

Presented by The Inspired Sewist

Make your own Digital Thread Painting!

Join one of the latest trends in quilting with Sylvain Bergeron and learn how to create a quilt design out of machine embroidery. In this two day seminar, you will learn how to digitize a simple geometric embroidery motif and how to incorporate it in a quilt layout in the BERNINA Quilter software. On the second day, we will stitch out the embroidery blocks and piece them into a 2×2 quilt with built-in binding. So join us for two days of creative fun, brush up on your embroidery software skills and learn a couple of new tricks in quilt binding while you’re at it. Sylvain’s teaching philosophy is can be summed up as ‘I never learned so much while having so much fun’.

Sylvain Bergeron

Bio:

Sylvain Bergeron is a self-taught seamster and machine embroidery teacher who came into quilting in 2005 when he asked himself a simple question: what if embroidery were the quilt? The answer came in the form of quilt tops containing anywhere from 1.25 to 4 million stitches where simple lines and colors create complex images. He was the 2006 recipient of the first ever Master Award for Thread Artistry at the Fall International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX and of the Gold Prize at the 9th Quilt Nihon Exhibition in Tokyo, Japan. He is a webmaster by trade and lives in Oswego, IL
