Teaching: Fun With the West Michigan Quilter’s Guild

April 8, 2012
Step on in and take a peek at the wonderful day of playtime fun we had with the West Michigan Quilter’s Guild in Grand Rapids. Surface Design Sampler Platter is a crazy class – six surface design techniques in six hours. It’s a mix of kindergarten playtime with a little touch of insanity thrown in.

And much fun was had by all!!! Paint, foil, photo transfer, stamp carving, stenciling – and finally – BEADS! 

All in one crazy class!
If you’re thinking to yourself – I wish, I wish, I wish I could take this class….
All these methods are taught on my two DVD workshops.
