Here is the second of the fall classes I'll be offering - Art Quilt Studio. Designed for both beginner and more experienced quilters who want to do their own thing with quilting or move their art experience into a textile medium. Let me teach you how to quilt or how to make your quilt your own vision.

 I want to highlight some of my fall classes coming up at Visarts here in the heart of VA. There is a lot of interest in natural dyeing and my interest is in doing it right - honestly how great is a color if it's going to fade in a few months or isn't wash fast. Come join me in looking at pre-1856 dyeing.

Natural Dye Explorations: Natural dyeing is a wild and wonderful adventure. Getting good color saturation and permeance can be tricky. Each color has its own ingredients, process, and history. You will work with natural fiber fabrics/yarns and explore various dye stuffs and pattern making techniques.
