Lyric Kinard's new Thermofax 101 DVD + a Giveaway

Have you ever printed with a Thermofax screen? Have you wondered what all the hype among fiber artists is for these printing goodies? My friend Lyric Kinard comes to your rescue with her new one-hour DVD called Thermofax 101. I've had the pleasure of working with Lyric in the past and I can tell you that she is an excellent and patient teacher. She explains things in a very approachable way and this DVD is the next best thing to having her at your elbow while you learn how easy it is to screen print on fabric with a Thermofax screen.


Lyric walks you through the fundamentals of designing imagery for your own screen, getting one created (she lists sources - it's so affordable!), the supplies you'll need, and how to print on fabric. You'll be amazed at how much fun it is and how quickly you can print unique, original fabric, in just the colors and patterns that you want.

This is a bee that I printed with a Thermofax screen! So fun!!

To celebrate the release of her new DVD, Lyric is giving away copies at each stop on the blog hop (the complete list is below - enter at each stop for the most chances to win). 

Leave a comment here before midnight on Monday, May 11 and tell me what is your favorite imagery to print - mine is insects (quelle surprise!) And remember to add your email address so I can contact you if you win - Lyric is shipping prizes to international readers too, so c'mon Aussie friends! Enter here and at each stop on the blog hop, there are 17 chances to win!

This blog tour is chock-a-block full of so many fabulous fiber artists and I just noticed that my friend Judy Gula is one of them. Judy and I will both be teaching in a few weeks at the Quilters Unlimited show, the biggest and best show in the DC area.

Hi Jane... love the vintage theme this month, and each artist has taken such a totally different approach... so it is really fun to await the posts while trying to see through the names and try to guess the techniques used. You have pulled three great techniques from your great skills inventory to share in your piece and it is stellar! Thanks for all you do to share the news about new products and special effects.
