Classes


Choose the colors you like and we'll get started on learning the techniques of fabric painting. Please join me in creating this lovely wholecloth quilt panel for you to take home and finish in any way you like. We will learn painting techniques, share information on paints, brushes and fabrics. I will bring a trunk show to give you lots of ideas on how to complete your quilt. No drawing or painting experience necessary. Just bring your enthusiasm and be prepared to put a new skill in your repertoire. The kit fee will cover everything you need, except a pen to take additional notes or if you are a returning student, you can bring your own supplies from the list provided below. Looking forward to meeting you and sharing my knowledge on fabric painting.
