A Thread Painting Primer

Quilt Out Loud | February 2013

Ellen Rushman joins Jodie Davis at Pins and Needles Quilt Shop in New York City to learn the basics of thread painting. Jodie copied her antique china to printable paper as a base for her thread painting and kept it stable by using a stabilizer and hoop. Try it: it’s much easier than it looks and lots of fun!

Jodie introduces two books that include thread painting designs:

Fabric + Paint + Thread = Fabulous by Pat Durbin


  1. I am a current member of QNNtv and I am unable to connect to any of the videos that are a part of membership cost. I have used my sign-in and password five times and cannot get past the short preview on Thread Painting in order to see the entire video????
    Please let me know if something has changed recently or my membership which is good through August is somehow not valid anymore.
