Getting My Mojo Back with Machine Stitch….Guest Blogger: Laura Elmore

April 21, 2020

Level 2 Studies in Design and Experimental Machine Stitch (Class ID: Clover) Blog 3

Before I ever heard of Gail Harker, I was a painter who’d lost her mojo and was dabbling with quilts designed by others while waiting to find it. At some point during that mojo-less period, I saw a show featuring the work of Gail’s students. Needless to say, I was blown away and began to formulate a picture of where my own art could go in some far-off future time.  A year or two passed before I ended up signing up for the first of a series of workshops, leading up to the current machine stitch 2 class I have just completed.  It has been a wonderful journey of learning exciting new techniques, generating ideas and gaining confidence and joy – getting my mojo back!

    Your work is amazing and your theme is intriguing. Your machine stitch has allowed the painter in you to come out of hiding. Simply lovely. Congrats on completing your Level 2 studies.

    Gosh Laura, somehow I missed your lovely machine embroidery. I am delighted to see that your stitch personality shines in your machine embroidery as it does in your hand stitch. The way you combine bold colors, subjects and techniques is totally YOU and quite wonderful! Congratulations!
