    How do you find time to work on your fabric art ? It's a question I hear often (sometimes in my own head). Turn painted fabric into fabric art in 5 minutes. We'd all love hours to spend in our studios--but that's not realistic for most who aren't full-time artists. So how do you find...

  • Collograph Printing on Fabric – 5 Tips for Great Results

    Monoprinting techniques make me feel like a kid in art class: most are easy, fun, and a little messy. But making collograph prints has to be the most fun of all.

  • How to Clean and Care for a Thermofax Screen Printing Screen

    Thermofax screen printing is one of the easiest ways of printing on fabric. Once you had to have your own Thermofax machine to create your screens, but today you can design your own screen and send it off to a service to be made, or simply buy a screen design "off the rack" for a modest sum...

  • A Kid-friendly Fabric Painting Technique for Grown-Up Artists

    One of my favorite parts of being a fiber artist is that it gives me permission to play. Rearranging colorful squares of fabric, printing and painting on fabric --they all lighten my mood and bring out the kid in me. While taping " Quilting Arts TV" Season 14, I saw artists create with lots...

  • Hand Dyeing Shortcut: Make and Keep a Soda Ash Solution

    No matter which fabric dyeing techniques you use, dyeing fabric can be a fun--some might even say transformative--creative experience.

  • A Font for Patrick

    This was a challenge piece in several ways.

  • Barn Quilt 1 close up

    I took this picture of a barn I used to see 5 days a week while I drove for Napa Auto Parts. I just love it and we are loosing our barns at an alarming rate in our area. They are either burning down or being torn down or the wind just blows them over. Anyway, I love this one and thus the quilt. I traced...

I fused some pieces of a commercial fabric, then embellished with metallic fabric paint and eyelash...
