Going, Going, Gone Workshop

This is a constantly changing workshop, as I discover more and more cool products out there and what the heck to do with them. I teach this workshop in two ways, either as a half-day demonstration only workshop, or as a full day hands-on workshop.

Half Day Demonstration Only Workshop

The good part about this workshop is that you don't have to bring anything except yourself and maybe a pencil, and you get to watch me have all sorts of fun using really cool stuff like Toni's Amazing Disappearing Paper; Bonding Agent 007; Solvy water soluble disappearing medium; painted & fused Steam a Seam II Lite; foil and foil glue; Hot Stuff; Clear 'N Melt; fabric paints; and whatever other cool stuff I've found to play with. The bad part is it all looks easy when I do it, and you don't get to have any of the fun!

Full Day Hands-On Workshop

The bad part about this is you have to bring all your stuff - you know, your STUFF! You have to bring scissors and a sewing machine and iron and cutting board and ...other stuff. The good part is I am willing to sell you a kit with all kinds of fun stuff to play with, like Toni's Amazing Disappearing Paper; Bonding Agent 007; Solvy water soluble disappearing medium; painted & fused Steam a Seam II Lite; foil; Hot Stuff; Clear 'N Melt; and whatever other cool stuff I've found to play with, and you get to play all day and nobody actually expects you to finish anything. Just play. You might eventually put a few of these techniques together to create something like these pieces, with lots of techniques all mixed together, but - HEY - no pressure.

Cool Stuff Resource Guide:

Okay, these are NOT the only places to get this stuff, but this is where I get some stuff. Most of this stuff I can get locally at the Dublin Sewing Center in Dublin or Eddie's Quilting Bee in Mountain View, but probably you are not nearby and need to know where YOU can get stuff. Lots of stuff. If you find someplace better and cheaper, you shoot me an e-mail, okay? Cool.
