New Weekly Challenge!
Jean Littlejohn and The Embellisher by Baby Lock

Wow! Just Wow! A Great Class With Jan Beaney!


Jan Beaney is one half of the fiber arts duo known as "Double Trouble Enterprises." Jan (on the R) and Jean Littlejohn (on the L) are well known for their amazing C_me_fe_janjean1_147x176surface design. They are in demand as teachers and lecturers and their self-published books are legendary treasures. Well, today I had the extraordinary pleasure of taking a class from Jan at The City Quilter. The class was described as follows:

"Using a comparatively new water soluble fabric, students will be encouraged to create patterned and textured fabrics by combining appliqué, beading, hand and machine stitching."

Very cool, right? Well, the class did not disappoint. My mind is already racing to where I could go with this fabulous technique! My one complaint about the class is that I would have liked it to be an all day deal (it was 12-6pm) or multiple days because there is so much I want to know from Jan! Here are some photos of the sample I made in class:

I'm totally jazzed for tomorrow's class with her partner-in-crime Jean Littlejohn. Oh, and I have to buy a ton of soluble fabric! I've got big plans!!
