Santa Barbara Quilting Retreats Presents Betty Busby!
Come spend four wonderful days on the Central California Coast with the dynamic Betty Busby.
In her own words, “For several years I have been exploring the use of various non-woven materials in my fiber art.
They have been a wonderful addition to traditional fabrics, extending the range of expression that can be achieved.
The class will include samples of different types of non woven materials, ways to produce images with them, and methods to incorporate them to extend the range of expression that can be achieved with traditional fabrics.
In addition, I have developed new ways of painting fabrics. Students can make samples using my methods and materials, and combine them with the non-wovens as desired.
I will bring my electric cutting machine and demonstrate its use with both the nonwovens and vinyl. Instruction on its use and design features will be included if desired.
The aim of the class is to give each student many exciting ideas to experiment with.
Sample size pieces of the non-wovens I use and one yard of silk habotai are provided in the class.
Additional materials will be available to purchase if supply allows.”
