March Classes 2009

Class for March 3 Paintstiks by Barbara W.

Shiva® Artist's Painstiks® are oil paint in a crayon form. They are made of wax, a small amount of low-acid linseed oil, and pigment. When the paints are not in use, a thin film or skin forms over the paint and keeps the paint from drying up. Once the protective film is removed, paintstik colors are the consistency of a lipstick or grease-paint. Paintstiks are solid, but softer than a pastel or crayon. The solid form of the paint makes them unique in the paint world. You can use the paint directly on fabric or paper (or any porous service) or apply the paint with a brush.

Please bring a scissor to cut paper pattern
stencil brush
PREWASHED fabric light color or muslin min. size 8X8
pen or pencil to trace your pattern
$2.00 donation to cover the paints
I will bring the rest of the supplies, plus muslin for those that do not have any with them. We will start at 9:30

March 10th will be Peggy's class, Down and Dirty Table Runners. This is a great gift item. You will need 2 pieces of fabric, I/4 yard and the other 1/2 yard, plus regular sewing equipment. It is best if you prewash this fabric.

March 17 class will be Prairie Points and triangles by Marilyn S., supply list next week.

For those not taking either class, bring black thread and help on the raffle quilt for next year. It is really looking great.
