Surface Design in Quilting Lecture Tonight

I'm going to be giving a lecture on Surface Design in Quilting at the Watertown Public Library tonight.  The event is free, but reservations are required.  Here's the flyer for the event:

If you're interested in learning more about Surface Design on fabric, here are four tutorial videos I've shared over the years, specifically about printing/painting on fabric:

I'm going to tell you the most important things to remember about painting/stamping/drawing/printing/etc. on fabric.

  1. If you're not going to wash the fabric, then anything goes.  Use any art supply in your stash and have fun!
  2. If you are going to wash it, but you don't care how it feels, use any PERMANENT art medium in your stash and have fun!
  3. If you are going to wash it AND you care about the fabric being soft, use mediums meant for fabric (they will say on the label) or an additive like GAC 900.  And don't forget to have fun!

Here are some of my favorite fabric mediums:

Feel free to leave some of your favorite fabric mediums in the comments section!  I'm always excited to hear about products people love!

Thanks for stopping by!
