Spotlight Auction

This is a little part of the fabric I dyed, stamped with my hand made stamp, overdyed, and stitched. It was made for the SAQA Spotlight Auction, coming up soon.

The Florida SAQA Retreat was a treat. I met so many talented artists, and learned from many of them. I did a demo of deconstructed screen printing. My screens were not as I planned, because they dripped as they dried. Now I know to keep them in place flat to dry. But the technique still worked. And I overdyed the fabrics to increase the color saturation after I stamped my designs on them.

We attended demos about using a longarm machine to applique, making papercloth, layering paint onto a variety of fabrics to make an interesting background, sun printing with a heat lamp, passing around a quilt in progress to have many different artists work on it, and more.

The camaraderie was great. I sat with different people for each meal, to get to know them all. The food was wonderful. It was the best food I’ve ever had at a gathering like this. I hope to do many more.
