10+ Techniques with Acrylic Inks workshop in Sacramento

As much as I love traveling to fun places to teach, there’s nothing better than teaching close to home!

This weekend I taught a 2 day class at Meissner’s Sewing in Sacramento. This is my second time teaching at Meissner’s, it’s such a great place for workshops. They have a nice big classroom with a table for every student, and they are so accommodating when I’ve taken over a big part of the floor in the show room for our samples to dry ūüôā

One of the things I love about the 10+ techniques with acrylic inks class, is all the exploration we do that allows each student to create completely unique fabric, while learning all the different ways to apply acrylic inks to fabric.


Check out all these incredible samples made by my students:


Isn’t the variety of work incredible? I love seeing how each person can learn the same¬†techniques, but each one has a different hand, palette of color and tools that they choose to work with increasing the possibilities of how the fabric can develop so uniquely.

What fun! I’m looking forward to teaching this workshop again in Denver next month with the Arapahoe quilters.
