Fabric Embellishment: On Friday night you will have an opportunity to work with fabric embellishments such as paint sticks, Fabrico markers, fabric paints, foam stamps and color discharge. Please bring your own fabric to experiment on.  All are welcome to join in.  This is a great opportunity to try out some of the different products on the market without the expense.

Thank you Chris for putting our guild on your site. I have put yours on our site also. I think in numbers we can afford to do greater things.
