New technologies and products—plus a willingness to think outside the sewing box—make it possible to pair fabric with just about anything you can find to create textured and very unique artistic expressions. First make lustrous dimensional quilts using a soldering iron and handmade fabric paper fused to felt. Then learn how to transform bits of tissue papers and gift wrap into beautiful fabrics that can be machine- or hand-stitched and embellished, with designer Beryl Taylor. Then its time to go digital with Andrea Bishop and printing on surfaces other than paper, especially fabric. Then join Sue Hausmann for machine piecing a half square triangle and tips for speed stitching on the bias. Last it’s Tracy and Allison Stilwell and how to make scrap faces.
