  • 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.

  • Sewing Beads on Fabric: Write with the Beaded Backstitch

    Recently I spied a Facebook post by Candy Glendening in which she shared a picture of a fabric zipper-bag she made to hold her son's charging devices while he travels. Of course, Candy not only made the bag from her own dyed fabric but stitched her son's name on it, to boot. No one else is going...

  • Printmaking Ideas for Fabric Using the Sun

    Of all the printmaking techniques for fabric, sun printing has to be one of the most fun. It's truly magical to watch the "prints" develop right before your eyes. All the printmaking supplies you need are the sun, stencils or objects to "resist" the light, fabric, and a chemical...

  • Fabric Fusing Tips for a Coloring Book Quilt

    When I was a child, before we had handheld devices--or even more than a handful of TV channels--we often passed the time by coloring. Any time the adults wanted to keep the young folk quiet and occupied, out came a fresh coloring book and box of crayons, and we were absorbed for what seemed like hours...

    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...

  • Re: Overwhelmed by options!

    My suggestion is to pick one technique that you've literally never tried before that sounds like it will be amazing, and combine it with a technique you're really familiar with. This method of combining something new with something you could do in your sleep helps insure that even if your efforts...

    I was reading Patty Young's tips and came up with a good idea (it may not be original, I'm not sure). She said to design, write notes etc. right on your work surface. Right away I thought of the table-top rolls of drawing paper sold for children's artwork. They are mounted on wooden rollers...
