Hi, all. My name is Judy Sall, and I am an art and landscape quilter from Flagstaff, AZ. I have been an artist/crafter since I was a small girl, but only in the past couple of years have I really become involved with making quilts. My primary creative outlet for the past 11 years has been tie-dye clothing. Then in 2007, I took a class in Surface Design techniques from Melly Testa, and my life changed! Suddenly I had a whole new set of tools I could use with dyes and fabric: screen printing, soy wax batik, stamping, monoprinting... it blew me away! That's also when I subscribed to Quilting Arts magazine, and that too blew me away! I discovered a whole community of quilters and artists who share their skills and knowledge, inspiring me to keep trying new things... what a life! Now I am joining this forum in hopes it will help me continue to grow and flourish as a fiber artist. I can't wait to dive in!
'Busy hands are happy hands... especially when fabric, dye, thread, beads, etc., are involved!'
Welcome Judy. Glad to hear that Melly is such a positive influence! She is a wonderful artist! I hope that you will share your art with us. I tie dye as well. I have the fingers to prove it.

HI Judy! Welcome! We're big fans of Melly here too! I can't wait for her video challenges. There's a thread going on about them on the forums.
