My Goal is to guide your ZigZag journey, from the very beginning, to more advanced and set you on a creative journey that will continue for 'life'.
Once you get 'hooked' with Thread Painting, it's hard to put it aside. It is SO much fun!
At the end of these courses you will be able to explore a whole new world of creativity!
What students say about Deborah's online courses...
'Hello Deborah, I'm new to free motion quilting and so pleased I enrolled on your course. I have watched the whole course, and enjoyed every minute of it, with your very clear and pleasant teaching method before I venture into drawing and sewing my first picture. Kind Regards Val from the UK.' (Freestyle Machine Thread Sketching)
'This is one of the best on-line courses I've ever taken. The tone is just right, and everything seems to be covered, in an orderly and understandable manner. The downloads are excellent, and the lessons very straight-forward. Having listened and read through the whole course, I'm now ready to begin sewing, and am looking forward to also incorporating other fabric techniques I'm familiar with, such as dyeing and printing, into future work. Thank you, Deborah, for all the effort put in to making this course so very good.' Alison.(Fabulous Fabric Landscapes)
'What a wonderful course, I'm so pleased that I subscribed. Thank you for sharing your expertise and making the lessons so accessible and easy to follow.' Ann. (Fabulous Fabric Landscapes)
'I've just been through the course, so I know what to expect, and find it clear and easy to follow. The Lifetime access is so useful, as like many others, I have to fit the course around other things, and had it been access for a set time, I'd have found it difficult to complete. As it is, I'll be able to relax and make the most of the time I have to create and stitch. Looking forward to beginning. Thanks, Deborah.' Alison (Fabulous Fabric Landscapes)
'Hi Deborah, I love this class. of course I jump around, because I am soooo excited. How can I send the picture I would like to use for your imput? Then I will start with the class "homework" :) Thank you Margaret.'(Fabulous Fabric Landscapes)
Hi, I just wanted to say hello and thank you! I have never taken an art, sewing, or quilt class. Having been completely self-taught has been fun BUT I am thrilled to have found you! Your style, manner, and expertise are perfect for me to learn new skills and enhance others! I am having so much fun learning from you! Suzanne (Fabulous Fabric Landscapes)
