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!)
