Show 1903 Premiers Sunday with an artist that just couldn't settle for the usual fabric selections. Jane LaFazio will show you how to bring new life and fun to your fabric choices by "making it yourself".
Jane came to quilting with a graphic design degree and a passion for sketching and watercolor. She shows you how to create your own cloth by adding surface designs to fabric using a stencil and acrylic ink. She then uses the same stencil as a template for stitching to add more texture and interest.
And in her second demo, Jane adds bits of wool roving, sheer fabric, and ribbon to Prefelt to create a “sandwich” of elements that are felted together. Further embellishments include beads, sequins and whatever else comes to mind.
Ricky has a pattern for you Star Members and a way to enhance it using a variety of stitches and the "Circle Maker" attachment.
