Mollie Freeman:

Creating Texture On The Surface Of Handwoven Fabric,

The Use Of Textile Paints And Discharge Paste For Added Design 

100_0559Holly1My work focuses on creating garments using many different surface design techniques.  Piecing, couching, twin needle stitching and bobbin work are just a few of the techniques that use the sewing machine.   Hand work is also used in many garments.

Stamping, stenciling and silk screening are all part of my design process.  I work on painted warp fabric so the added color and design of a stamp or stencil can be very subtle or quite dramatic.

I find each garment and adventure and a surprise.  A plan is only a beginning!
