Show 2204: Leni L. Wiener / Jake Simmons - The Human Form from Portrait to Art Piece

Featuring: Leni L. Wiener / Jake Simmons

Posts On: February 11, 2018


Leni Levenson Wiener has been photographing unsuspecting people on park benches for many years, often using her husband as a decoy. A people watcher by nature, she enjoys creating a little story and found that the background and bench itself were not actually necessary when trying to convey a message. Leni shares how to she builds these unique mounted floating art works.
Building the human face using a wide variety of fabric can be quite difficult. Leni shares tips for using unexpected fabrics when it comes to skin tones. When she pushes the options to more unusual fabrics, the face shifts from portrait to art piece.

When it comes to quilting, we don’t often do our bodies justice. Hours of being hunched over a sewing machine can take its toll. Jake Simmons, a practicing chiropractor, shares tips for preventing pain while quilting.

THough Jake was so helpful, I feel there are ALOT of ladies and gents who CAN NOT get down on the floor and do that plank exercise. Perhaps you can get him back for just another" instead of getting on the floor" core exercise.

Hello, I often notice that the dual feed is not engage on the D feet of the Bernina machine. You need to hook the dual feed to the foot in order for it to be used as a walking foot
