In this workshop you will create a 18 x 18 silk painting that
can later be quilted or framed. We will be working with
Jacquard Red Label dyes. You will learn how to stretch

steaming to be permanent.

home with me to be steamed. Paintings will be mailed back
to within a couple of days. (I will discuss the steaming
process with you and show you how easy you can create
your own steamer).If you prefer to work on your own

inside your quilts, in case of tension issues.

will see what you are doing. 50 weight is fine, 40 a bit thicker. Contrasting color to your fabric choice.

need it. The measuring guide if you received one with your foot and templates.
