Class 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 she has cats, in case you're allergic; they stay in the guest room during class.

                                        Saturday, May 11, 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 very
                                        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.

                                        Saturday, July 27, 9:30-4:30pm
                   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.   


​ ​                                         Friday, August 9, 10am-2:30pm (Session 1), and Friday, August 16, 10am-2:30pm (Session 2)
​                                         Silk Fusion Wallhanging  

                                          In this two-part class, create your own "fabric" by bonding silk fibers (and other fibers & 
                                          threads) with textile medium. Then make a wallhanging that features your silk fusion, resulting
                                          in a one-of-a-kind piece of art. It's easy! Your wallhanging may look different than these 
                                          samples if you want, depending on your color and fabric choices. 
​  
                                          In Session 1, you'll make a piece of Silk Fusion in your choice of colors, taking it home to dry. 
                                          Then in Session 2, you'll incorporate your Silk Fusion into a wallhanging, choosing 1 of 3 styles:
                                           1.  Silk Fusion is fused to a background then quilted with decorative stitches and threads/yarns
                                               (no free motion!), - or -
                                           2. Thin Silk Fusion is fused to a background so it appears to float, with fabric prints "fussy cut",
                                               fused and quilted, - or -
                                           3. Stencils are used to cut shapes out of silk fusion that are then fused to a background and
                                               either quilted or wrapped around an artist canvas. (She'll have many stencils to choose from!)

                                          There's no need to bring a sewing machine to Session 2! Debbie will demo a number of stitching 
                                           and quilting techniques including how to make a facing, rather than binding your quilt, or for
                                           those who don't want to stitch or quilt, how to wrap fabric art around a canvas for a "gallery
                                           finish". You're welcome to take photos, but no video please. See more examples of this class on
                                           the Silk Fusion pages.

​ $80 + tax includes most materials and supplies plus color handouts; students bring background fabric, fusible web
  and sharp scissors ... and a lunch. More details are in the Welcome Letter that is sent when you register. Contact
  Debbie if you have any questions. (Note: the class fee covers both sessions.)


 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,

                                        candle or fairy lights, plus a color handout. Bring a glass vase up to 9" tall (used to shape the

                                        Tuesday, June 11, Quilt guild meeting begins at 7pm
                                        Lecture: Fabric Scraps Become Fine Art!
                                        Stretching the boundaries of what can be done with fabric, Debbie encourages quilters and other
                                        fiber artists to see their work is fine art. She will show lots of samples along with slides, 
                                        explaining how she “accidentally” developed her fusible technique and sharing how it doesn’t take
                                        any art training to create beautiful fabric decollage (a cross between decoupage and collage)
                                        without the time and planning required in quilting. Of course, stitching or quilting can also enhance
                                        these pieces. Not to replace quilting, but adding to it, this is a great way to work with all those
                                        leftover fabric scraps. Arrange them to create landscapes, underwater seascapes, or even
                                        abstract pieces. Add a mat and frame, and voilá, it’s fine art! This will open up a whole new world 
                                        to fabric lovers – you'll never look at fabric the same way again!

                                        No charge to attend the guild meeting and lecture - join us for a fun and inspiring evening!
                                        Brazos Bluebonnet Quilt Guild meets at the Brazos Center, 3232 Briarcrest Dr., Bryan, TX 77802


                                        Wednesday, June 12, 10am-4pm
                                        Butterfly Bouquet/Dragonfly Garden Wallhanging Class  
                                        ​Create a beautiful floral bouquet adorned with butterflies and dragonflies, or leave out the vase 
                                        and make an outdoor garden scene! Choose from lots of butterfly and dragonfly patterns and
                                        different vase designs, all printed on freezer paper, so there's no tracing. Then use fabric and
                                        fusibles to make them all uniquely yours. Make some of the butterflies 3-D, so they stand out,
                                        literally! Large-scale floral and leaf prints add to the design, which can be either vertical or
                                        horizontal. Depending on how many butterflies and dragonflies you want, you may choose to 
                                        finish this at home or may finish in class. No sewing is required. The finished 18"x24" wallhanging
                                        can either be quilted later or wrapped around a stretched canvas, which Debbie will demonstrate
                                        in class. No need to bring a sewing machine! Easy techniques, for all skill levels. A detailed handout
                                        is included. See more images of this class on the Butterfly Bouquet and Butterfly Garden pages,
                                        and also on the Student Gallery 45 & 6 pages. (Quilted examples are on Student Gallery 6 page.)

                                        $35 class fee + $15 kit fee. Students bring background fabric, a floral print, fabric for either a
                                        vase (for a bouquet) or ground (for a garden), fusible web, tweezers, scissors and a lunch. The kit
                                        fee covers the patterns/designs printed on freezer paper, all fabrics for butterflies/dragonflies
                                        (many already fused), foam-core board, pins, a detailed handout and lots of misc. supplies. More
                                        details are in the Welcome Letter that is sent when you register (see below). Contact Debbie if
                                        you have questions. (Class will be held at the American Legion Hall, Post 159, 101 Waco St., Bryan.)


                                        Thursday, June 13, 9am-2pm
                                        Stamping and Embossing on Fabric Class
                                        Bring your own fabric, scarves and/or clothing to class and use Debbie's stamps, stencils, inks,
                                        paints, paint sticks and markers to create unique pieces that will add pizazz to your quilts, 
                                        wearables or decollage! Learn tricks for getting crisp, clear images that are permanent once heat-
                                        set, and enhance your fabrics even more with inks and markers for depth and shading. Use wooden
                                        and wood-backed stamps, foam stamps and stamps you can easily make yourself. Techniques 
                                        include stamping with permanent ink, stamping with fabric paint, stenciling with oil paintstiks and 
                                        more, foiling on fabric and velvet embossing. (Velvet is included in the kit fee.) Everyone will ask
                                        how you did that! She'll also give a couple of extra demo's as a bonus. A detailed handout will be 
                                        a great reference for stamping at home. See more examples on the Stamped Fabrics page.

                                       $35 class fee + $18 kit fee includes everything mentioned above, except for your fabric and lunch.
                                       More details are in the Welcome Letter that is sent when you register (see below). Contact Debbie

​ 
​                                        $35 class fee + $20 kit fee includes everything except for scissors, tweezers and a lunch. More

​                                        Saturday, June 15, 9am-4pm
                                        Ice Dyeing & Modern Tie Dyeing
                                        ​Create your own unique fabrics (8-10+ pieces) by sprinkling dyes over ice covered fabric. So
                                        beautiful, similar to batiks, only better! First we'll prepare the fabrics in a soda ash solution, then
                                        the real fun begins. Bring any fabric (or scarves, t-shirts, etc.) made of natural fibers like cotton,
                                        silk, rayon, wool, bamboo or blends of these. Learn different ways to scrunch, twist, twirl, fold 
                                        and clamp your fabric to get different patterns. Choose your dye colors and watch the magic as
                                        the dyes melt over the ice! Wear old clothes and shoes, and we'll use masks and gloves for safety
                                        with the powdered dyes. We'll also use liquid dyes on folded and tied fabrics to get starbursts,
                                        mandalas, swirls and more. A detailed handout is included. Many easy techniques, no prior 
                                        experience necessary. This is a great way to make your quilts, wearables and other fabric art 
                                        truly unique! See more examples on the Dyed Fabrics and Dyed Wearables pages.

                                        $35 class fee + $45 kit fee includes everything except for fabric (and scarves/clothing if you                                         want), ice, rubber gloves, old towels, a spray bottle and a lunch. The kit fee includes dyes, soda
                                        ash, urea, Synthrapol/Dawn, containers, mask, trays/racks, sinew, ties, balls/marbles, plastic and
                                        plastic wrap, bottles, Reduran and other supplies. More details are in the Welcome Letter that is 
                                        sent when you register (see below). Contact Debbie if you have questions. (Class will be held at 
                                        the American Legion Hall, Post 159, 101 Waco St., Bryan, TX.)
