This week you'll learn to turn your vacation memories, or any special day you want to remember, into a project that is long lasting. You'll also see how to make a keepsake notebook to use as a journal for your travels near and far away.
The first part of the show starts with a lively presentation by my friend Kim Montagnese. She'll show you how to print and then stitch a few photo memories from your favorite trips. You’ll be able to re-live those happy moments over and over again!
Take a look at these artistic blocks! Would you believe they originate from a photo of a gate in Glasgow Scotland?!? Turning ordinary images into something suitable for big blocks opens up a world of creative opportunities. It's all possible with an ingenious computer software program called the Kaleidoscope Kreator. This is Kim's chosen tool to easily turn her photo memory into patchwork pieces for a wallhanging. Kim is an expert at showing the options found in this program. Watch the show and then CLICK HERE to explore more and see projects and variations designed by the inventor of the software, Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero.
Eileen Roche, Editor of Designs in Machine Embroidery Magazine appears in the second segment where she builds a clever notebook using an "in the hoop" embroidery technique.
Her chosen fabric is marine vinyl, commonly found in big box fabric stores. I have friends who have made many beautiful embroidered pieces from this ordinary base fabric. I'm always intrigued by fabrics that have ravel proof characteristics and this is on my "to play with list" for the very near future.
Angela has a few more quick serger tips to round out the show at the end. Hopefully you are making some samples of these as the series continues. They'll serve you well as samples for future projects. This week it's all about the ins and outs of corners.
