  • How to Make Felted Soap - Great Fiber Art Gifts

    At farmer's markets and fiber festivals, I'm always attracted to the handmade scented soaps and baskets of dyed wool roving. Both are a feast for the senses! Felted fiber art you can use! Felted soaps (and image) by Jane LaFazio. Imagine my delight when I discovered you could combine the two...

  • Sewing Beads on Fabric: Create Text with Beaded Embroidery

    When I first discovered art quilting, heavily encrusted, beaded quilts were very popular due to a revival of crazy quilting. For a while, paint, needle felting, and fabric manipulation became more popular as surface embellishment--and that's still true. But I see beaded embellishments are making...

  • Basic Quilting Abbreviations: From ATC to WOF

    If I told you to go to your LQS to get some PFD so you could finish your ATC you HSY, would you know what I was talking about? Quilters use many abbreviations to communicate basic quilting terms. Some are practical: you don't want to have to write (or repeat) "half-square triangles" over...

  • Learn How to Quilt in a Group

    My favorite work day is Tuesday, because that's when our office holds show-and-tell. Given the array of quilters, sewists, and mixed-media artists in our group (many of whom also knit, crochet, and make jewelry), you never know what to expect.

  • Art Couture: Three Wearable Art Techniques to Try

    Whenever I go to an art exhibit, a quilt show, Quilt Market, or a similar kind of event, I always keep an eye out for fashion.

  • Embroidering fabric

    Hello, My first post! I've stamped some fabric (fat quarter) and want to embroider on it now to make it more complex as it evolves into a finished piece. I'm not sure where it's going but should I back it with flannel or other thin backing before I start the hand work or should I do handwor...

  • A Good Bood

    When reading a book, a person actually sees the words in their mind and feels the emotions these words evoke. This is me reading "A Good Book" running through a myriad of emotions as the story progresses from "Once upon a time" to "and they lived happily ever after."

  • Along Our River

    This 18"x23" quilt was made for our quilt guild challenge, Along the River. The river needed to enter on the left side and exit on the right side of the quilt so I chose the Hudson River as it meanders through our area of the lower Adirondacks. I enlarged a map of the river and used it to arrange...

  • Re: UK members..is there a source book for City and Guilds course in embroidery??

    Hi Lorraine, I don't think that there is a C&G coursebook available as normally the coursework is down to the Lecturers! What I'd recommend you do is have a look at the Embroiderers' Guild here in the UK. Find yourself a local Branch to join and have fun learning without the expense of...
