Fabric Manipulation & Embellishment

Yesterday I had the opportunity to teach a class on Fabric Manipulation & Embellishment at the Culture Centre in High River.  Six wonderful ladies joined me for a day of fun and learning, exploring new techniques that can be added to art quilts, fibre arts, mixed media and collages.

 Some of the materials we explored were Tyvek, Texture Magic, Angelina fibres, alcohol inks for dying lace, acrylic paints and fabric medium for stamping on fabrics, silk velvet for embossing with stamps, encrusted beading stitch, and adding glitter.  It was so much fun to share what I have learned about playing with these "toys"!

 The ladies had fun creating wonderful bubbly fabric using Texture Magic and stitching various grid shapes.
The velvet embossing was a big hit and the samples turned out beautifully!  I know I will be seeing these samples again when some of the ladies return for a crazy quilting class next month!

Kerry, I bet that class was so much fun! Oh why do we have to live so far apart! The velvet is just beautiful, especially the spider, but I love the sun face too.

What a fun outing! You are the most 'on the go' person I know. I read over your goals and I'm exhausted. LOL.

Good to see you having fun :-)

Wow, this sounds like it was both successful and fun! Maybe we ought to try this one time at a Retreat - a marathon day (or afternoon) of shared techniques. Hugs, Cathy
