February 5 Meeting Program

Evelyn Link and Judy Berry have formed a partnership called Creative Adventures in Fiber Arts and Art Quilts. They will present a trunk show on February 5 to acquaint Nimble Thimbles members with the techniques they are playing with. These include decorating fabric with Shiva Oil Paintstiks, bleach discharge, painting on fusible web, heating fibers to change their appearance, making memory quilts and fabric jewelry with photos and other innovative techniques. Come to the meeting to see these fun and exciting things quilters are doing with fabric.
Evelyn will be teaching the class using the Shiva Oil Paintstiks at the Desert Breeze Police station on Saturday, February 9, from 9a.m. to noon. You will have the opportunity to decorate fabric and take home your own painted apron. These paints look like fat Crayons and are easy to use. You can design your own fabric to make an art quilt or make them into traditional quilt blocks. It’s fun and easy!
