July Meeting: Digital Printing, Spoonflower, and of course Show N Tell

Danielle's postcard with thread-painting enhancements

Our meeting last night was yet again overflowing with inspiration, information, and just plain fun. Here are some of the show n tell items displayed:

Ben's Quilt for his church to hang in a Central American clinic they support

Cornelia's products from a mushroom dyeing class

Marian's work from a drawing class

Thread painting by Marian

Terry's samples from the mushroom dyeing class

Kathy presented some great tools and techniques for digital printing. Then she introduced us to Spoonflower. We are all hooked now.
