Class Description:

Fabric painting is not as messy or time consuming as dyeing.  You can get wonderful effects of paint, water, and salt just overnight.  We will be painting one fabric for leaves and the other for Tulips.  We will paint the fabric the first day, pick it up in the morning, then on the second day cut applique pieces and appliquilt them.  Many of you wil be done by the end of our time – done as in quilted, bound and signed.

THIS IS A 2 DAY CLASS – if you can not be there on Friday and Saturday – please do not sign up for this class.
