First, Alice will teach you how to paint on fabric (the outline of her design is pre-printed on the fabric) using acrylic paint, and how to mix paints to create any color.

Alice Leggett started sewing and drawing as a child. She studied fine art through college, and worked as a graphic artist for many years, including producing the illustrations and typesetting for Pat-e-Patterns. Portrait painting has always been her passion, and in 1990, she founded Leggett Portraits. She teaches oil painting in Costa Mesa, and paints commissioned oil portraits and seascapes along the California coast.

Then, Lee will teach you how to add texture and dimension with free motion stitching. You will learn how to manage difficult thread in your machine to achieve amazing results. Your finished project will be mounted on 8”x8” stretcher bars, ready to hang on the wall.

Lee Fletcher has been sewing as long as she can remember. Alice and Lee’s mother was a seamstress and artist, and nurtured both of their interests in sewing and art. Lee excelled with the sewing. Her wallet pattern was self-published for the sewing industry, and was added to the Butterick Catalog in 1983. The Quilter’s Wallet was reintroduced in 2001 under the Pat-e-Patterns name for the quilting industry. In 2007 she became a Freelance Sulky National Educator, sharing the wealth of information accumulated over the years.
