behind the scenes – getting ready to film

350x500.Bead-ItSomething wonderful and big is happening her in Lyric Art studios this month. In several weeks my wonderful and talented producer, Bonnie McCaffery will be here to film a couple of DVD’s. She did an amazing job with my DVD, Bead It Like You Mean It so I didn’t hesitate to bring her in when I was ready to film another.

I’ve been thinking of doing one for several years and have a number of outlines hashed out but life is always very, very busy here. It seems that with my business the only thing that forces me to get things done is a deadline – so I just called up, set a date, and viola! Deadline to be met.

Now I just need to choose which topics I’m going to cover. I’ll have time to film two DVD workshops and have three ideas. Perhaps you can give me some feedback?

I’m sure I’m going to film a Thermofax Screen Printing DVD. All the how-to of finding or creating a design, making a thermofax screen, what kinds of paints to use, print set-up, design possibilities and so on. It will be jam packed with lots and lots and lots of information.

IMG_8436I’m also thinking of filming a DVD workshop on various methods of mounting and framing textile art. I would include matting and framing, wrapping the quilt around stretcher bars, and also mounting the textile art on painted canvases. What do you think? Is there actually any interest in this? Is anyone even interested in framing or mounting their quilt art?

What do you think? Granted, I sort of think that a lot of things I teach are only interesting to a very small number of people. I’m pretty much OK with that. When I self publish I’m not really worried about how fast the publication actually sells. It won’t go out of print until I’m ready to be done with it.

I would really love your feedback!
