April Evening Meeting is In Person!
Love the look of batik, but hate the mess? Using a water-soluble resist, outlines are created with a fine line applicator. The next step is painting, and you don’t even have to wait for the resist to dry! Once complete, rinse out the resist with water. Voila! Easy & Fun!
We will start by learning the technique, then we just play on fabric with the paints to warm-up. We'll do the same with the resist. After practicing, there will be a choice of designs to choose from. Once the resist dries, we will paint the background of the image. There will be time to create more than one image. Email me if you would like to work on your own design, so I can help you modify it.
KIT Fee: $29. This includes fabrics, paint palette, paint brushes, resist and tip, use of paints, air erasable marker, pencil, notebook with instructions, hoop for stretching fabric, absorbent fleece, paper towels, plastic for tables.

Join us virtually as we create two blocks, one to keep, and one to share with the Quilt 2 End ALZ foundation. Your workshop fee includes a kit that you will supplement with fabrics from your own stash. The half-day workshop will end around noon, with a fun Guild sew-along in the afternoon.
When we log on to sew together, Ashli will walk you through the most recent TLD (The Longest Day) block: FLOWER SHOW
You will have your packet to explore and read through before our workshop. The pattern includes step-by-step instructions for piecing the block as well as enough of Ashli’s signature Flower Show fabric to use in two blocks, one for you to keep and finish in your own way, and one to send back to Ashli to use in fundraising projects.
Flower Show is a great block to use up your purple, red, gold, and white stash fabrics, and best of all, $20 from your class registration is donated to the Q2EA Longest Day team to support the Alzheimer’s Association.
