"RESIST n' PAINT"
“Resist n’ Paint” is a fun way to create your own designs on fabric!  You will work from Cynthia’s original designs to learn how a resist is applied to your fabric and then the fun begins.  Painting with Dye Na Flow paints and choosing colors to bring your design to life is very exciting as you will see amazing results quickly.  Dye Na Flow paints are in liquid form and they act as a dye.  They can be mixed to create lots of colors and can be diluted to give a gradation of a single color.  Dye Na Flow paints allow you so much versatility in your painted projects.

"Thread Painting & Angelina"
Thread Painting has been around for a while, so maybe it’s time to try it out for yourself to see if it is a good fit for your quilting designs.  The Flower Bowl is a great start to learn this, new to you, technique.  Once you have experienced the procedure for Thread Painting you will be able to take it to other projects.  Learning how to add Angelina fibers to your project will give you confidence to continue to use Angelina fibers in other projects too.  It’s like putting the icing on the cake…    I love to learn new things in the Quilting world!!!!!
