Thread Painting

On May 2nd to 4th, 2018, the Alderney Needlearts Guild invited Margot Kearney, from London, Ontario, to come and teach our guild the art of thread painting (replicating a photograph using embroidery floss).  Fourteen people from our guild and three from the Bedford Guild attended the three-day workshop.

Thread Painting Course

This was a new technique to all in attendance and was open to new and experienced needlers.  Each member was asked to bring in a picture that they had taken. Margot helped us to chose the best one and provided us with the silk fabric we would use. Over the three days, various thread painting techniques were taught by Margot and by the end of the workshop everyone had a good start on their project.  A great time was had by all.
