New Show, New Season! Make Your Own Fabric!!

We launch Series 1500 with a visit to the Texas studio of artist, instructor, and author Jane Dunnewold, well known for the one-of-a-kind fabrics she creates with printing, dyeing, resist, and other manipulations. 


In this episode, Jane discusses the meaning of surface design, and shows how she transfers a black-and-white copyright-free image to prepared-for-dye (PFD) silk, which she then embellishes with watercolor pencils and needle felting. You'll also love our tour of her wet/dry studios, a delightful blend of old and new.

Finally, Jane, who uses a hula hoop as a preventative for back problems, coaxes Alex and Ricky to give this childhood classic a try. It's an informative - and fun - start to a new season!


2170_willowday2.jpgIt's all in the Presentation: "Wrap it Up" with Style 

It's often been noted that the best gifts come in small packages. Here's a chance to make an adorable gift holder--large or small--using only craft paper, ribbon, and a few simple supplies.

TQS Puzzle: Tom and the Model T, Iowa 1924 by Sherri Cahill

TQS member Sherrie Cahill (sherrie58) was inspired by a family photo of her father-in-law to create this wonderful quilt. She used raw-edge applique, hand painting, and thread painting to complete the image, and the quilt was machine quilted on a longarm. Tom & The Model T, Iowa 1924 received an Honorable Mention at the 43rd Annual NQA Show in 2012.
