Wow, I can't say enough about these beautiful fabrics! They were intended for a collage project, but I simply am enjoying them too much on their own :) Excellent variety of colors and patterns, truly scrumptious textures. Thank-you very much!

About

An Ancient Art Made Modern!

Walking through the Ben Franklin in Burlington, Vermont (Linda was taking a Bob Ross class), she saw a book about fabric marbling and thought that would make some great fabric for a quilt. She set hubby to task to find what we would need. It took us a long time to get supplies and then how quickly we were hooked - on our first piece of fabric. We still have our Bob Ross-inspired piece, but that was the end of Linda's painting. The easel hubby built now works as a stand for all the photography of fabric that he does.

Marbling and quilting were a match for Linda. Initially she spent her creative juices trying to figure out what to do with the marbling - she just kept putting pieces with black fabric - no clue about color! Now she is finding all kinds of new ways to work with marbled fabric in quilted art pieces. She is looking forward to more and more creations of unique nature-inspired pieces - loving new commissions!

Most marblers are self-taught, we think. A few lucky people are able to work with the ebru masters in Turkey. Marblers nowadays are much freer with their help and suggestions, so newbies in the field have an easier time learning. We've been marbling now 20+ years, and we're still learning. In fact, we tend to put a new video up on our Facebook fan page each week after we have really studied it. Then in the next marbling session we try out a new technique or two. There is so much to learn - but it's so much fun! If you are interested, check out Galen Berry, another marbler who offers beginner classes - he is excellent. We also are now offering classes for beginners - in our home studio or on the road in Vermont and New England!

    I saw a book about fabric marbling and thought that would make some great fabric for a quilt. I set hubby to task to find what we would need. Three months later we were hooked!
