The lovely Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore, CA, provides an inspirational backdrop for this info-packed episode, which features the talented creative duo of textile artist Lura Schwarz Smith and her husband, Kerby C. Smith. First Kerby, a professional photographer, demonstrates how to adjust a photo image with the aid of a computer program to produce a crisp, clear, true-in-color image on fabric. Next, Lura shows how to enhance digitally printed fabric images with a variety of media, including water-soluble oil pastels, pencils, and inks. Finally, Ricky puts the "bow on the package" by performing an American Folk Medley for the nursery customers―and for us!―on an antique piano owned by the original owner of Alden Lane.
