We concluded our final meeting of the 2011-2012 year on June 13 with a presentation by a fabric thread painter, Susan Levi-Goerlich who paints with a sewing machine. Of her stitched works of art she says, “Using my 30 year-old sewing machine as a noisy paintbrush, I blend and mix colors by layering threads. Painterly effects are created by thousands of stitches. Texture is achieved by determining the movement of the fabric under the needle.”  Her artistic creations and descriptions of her technique are shown on her website: http://www.susanlevi-goerlich.com/
