211 Paints and dyes
Perhaps one of the most exciting additions to the quilting market has been paints and dyes. We’ve opened the door to dyeing our own fabrics; creating one of a kind hand painted looks and added a whole new dimension of surface embellishment. First, learn how to over-dye fabric to make original designs. Then join Shelly Stokes for a demonstration on how to blend colors when stenciling images on your fabric. Then Jane Davila demonstrates a traditional Japanese printing technique called “gyotaku” using rubber replica fish and also discusses various methods of printing from nature. Last, on our machine basics lesson, Sue Hausmann shows us quilting with yarn.
