Classes at Debbie's house in Albuquerque's NE Heights (off Spain, just west of Tramway) 
Small classes, 4 to 6 students maximum, in a relaxed setting with very personalized instruction. (Registration info is below.)
Please note that Debbie has cats, in case you're allergic; they stay in the guest room during class.

                                        Saturday, August 3, 9:30am-4:30pm
                   Fabric Landscape Decollage
                                        Create a unique 11"x14" fabric landscape, in any style or color scheme, finished in one day and 
                                        ready for a frame! It will look like a painting - a "fabric painting"! No stitching needed, and no 
                                        experience is necessary. With many chances to change your mind as your work evolves throughout 
                                        the day, it’s easy and fun. Bring a landscape photo for inspiration, or choose from hundreds of
                                        Debbie's pictures in class. Then choose from thousands of her landscape fabrics to make your
                                        own special scene. No templates or patterns are needed. Instead, you'll learn free-form cutting
                                        techniques to create a fabric landscape all your own. She will also show you how to alter this 
                                        technique so your finished decollage can be quilted or stitched later, if you prefer, and will also 
                                        discuss mounting and framing options. You'll finish your fabric landscape in class! See class 
                                        samples on the Landscapes pages and also on the Student Gallery pages.

$65 + tax includes all materials and supplies, plus a handout. Just bring your favorite small-to-medium sized sharp scissors (or borrow one of Debbie's favorites) and a lunch.   

                                         Saturday, August 10, 10am-2:30pm  
                                         Silk Fusion Vessels   
                                        ​ Learn to make these exquisite vessels by using a glass vase as a foundation, then bonding silk and
                                         other fibers to it using a special varnish. Take it home to dry in a few days, then remove it from
                                         the vase and you have a beautifully unique Silk Fusion Vessel. Insert an electronic candle or fairy
                                         lights for a soft glow that really highlights the silk fibers. You'll have fun playing with all the
                                         fibers and choosing the colors you want for your vessel. These fibers are incredibly soft yet so
                                         strong when bonded together. Add some Angelina fiber, Firestar, yarns, threads or other
                                         embellishments for sparkle if you like (included in the class fee). The varnish does not make the
                                         vessel shiny or overly stiff, just sturdy enough to hold its shape. It will still be soft and textured
                                         and oh, so touchable. There's nothing quite like it! Debbie will also demonstrate how to bond
                                         fibers to a glass vase permanently, as pictured on the bottom of the first Silk Fusion Vessels
                                         page - it's super easy! A detailed handout is included, so you can make more vessels at home. They
                                         make great gifts! See more examples on the Silk Fusion Vessels pages
$60 + tax includes all materials and supplies with your choice of electronic candle or fairy lights, plus a color handout.
You're welcome to borrow one of Debbie's vases or bowls and then pick up your vessel a few days later when it's dry -or-
you can bring your own vase up to 9" tall (used to shape the vessel on), a wine bottle or olive oil bottle (used as a stand to suspend the vase upside down), a box/bin to take it home in and a few old towels to prop it up for the ride ... and bring a lunch. More details are in the Welcome Letter that is sent when you register. Contact Debbie if you have questions.

 Pre-registration is required so Debbie can order supplies and have time to prepare before class; 
call 505-362-2675 with questions or to pre-register.

You can pay by phone with a credit card, or Debbie can email you a Paypal invoice,

(Call or email to let her know if you're sending a check.)

These classes will be held at Debbie's house in Albuquerque's Northeast Heights, off Spain near Tramway.

Class for the NNMQG Surface Design Group, Santa Fe, NM    (NNMQG: Northern New Mexico Quilt Guild)

                                        Tuesday, August 20, 9:30am-2:00pm
                   Silk Fusion Fabric    
                                        ​Create your own unique "fabric" using silk fibers/roving and other threads/fibers with textile
                                        medium. This technique results in lustrous one-of-a-kind fabric that can be used in quilts, fabric
                                        collage, bags, wearables and all kinds of art projects. Each student will make a her own unique 
                                        piece of Silk Fusion fabric, choosing from many colors of silk fibers (and other fibers if you
                                        want like bamboo and wool), along with sparkly Angelina and Firestar fibers and specialty bits and 
                                        pieces. It will be wet when completed, so you’ll take it home in a plastic bag, then remove it and 
                                        hang or lay flat to dry. Debbie will bring samples of Silk Fusion fabric along with small quilts that
                                        feature this wonderful textured fabric to inspire you! She'll also give lots of tips on how to use 
                                        it in your projects, and will explain how to alter the technique to make 3-D vessels.

$50 + tax includes all materials and supplies and a handout. You bring paper towels, a few old rags/towels and lunch/drink. 

Please call 505-362-2675 if you have questions, or email debbie@debbiejones.com.
