Danny Amazonas was a professional floral designer in New York City in the 70s. "Of all the things I tried, sewing wasn’t one of them. In the early 80s, I was working with mosaic art using various materials. Later, in the 90s, I retired from business and returned to my birth place to take care of my aging father. I then discovered the world of colourful fabrics and the art of quilting. I perceived quilting as the art of sewing pieces of fabric together to create a beautiful design. As such, in my own concoction of fibre art while not knowing the basic requirements of quilting, I developed my own ‘quilting techniques’ for recreational purposes. My work eventually evolved from mosaic patterns into free-form. In 2012, using a new technique unprecedented in the field of fibre art, ‘Freehand Patchwork’ was born."

10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Eastern Time

Coming Soon!
$599.00 Regular Price
DoubleTree Hotel / Center of New Hampshire
Level:  Everyone
Type of Class: Art , Special Events

Freehand Patchwork is an unorthodox technique that is like painting with colorful fabric. The beauty of the original textile designs are expressed while freely interpreting the image of the textile art. This is something extraordinary that could not be achieved in painting. Using a rotary cutter to produce layers of overlapping fused fabric and having raw edges are something traditional quilters rarely do. Every piece of artwork is machine sewn with invisible thread with free motion stitches.

Each class kit includes:

  1. A 16" x 14" Levitate tote bag.
  2. A 14" x 14" Levitate fabric prints as reference image.
  3. 1,200 square inches of *treated fabric with 48 different colors and values enough to create 20 different sizes of "spheres"        

*Each piece of fabric is treated with starch to prevent fraying and for easy cutting with rotary cutter, then fused on the backside of every piece of fabric. The entire process is too messy to be prepared in class, but it will be fully presented in detail with PowerPoint.

This is a special event class: 2 Days of Instruction. Wednesday-Thursday.  1 hour lunch break.
The class fee includes a kit with material needed for the class and a wristband for show entry.
