Typepad HTML Email Hi Diana, good to hear from you. The new class will be very much fabric based. I am working with paper in my current ledger class and want to feel cloth in my hands in this one. I envisage I will be working directly onto a piece of fabric which is cut into a garment shape but there is no reason why you cant replicate what Im doing onto a square or rectangular piece of fabric. You are under no obligation to copy me exactly, my onlywish is to inspire...... I can advise on UK suppliers but am limited in my knowledge re the USA although I can ask the rest of the group once we begin. I do provide a video on how to upload images which might help you but if you prefer to work without that aspect if class then that is ok too. The only thing I would say is that being involved in the image group is amazing as everyone is so supportive and helpful. I hope this helps but please dont hesitate to mail me if you need any more info xx GetOutlook for Android Get Outlook for Android
