Mickey Lawler Lecture - Confessions of a Blanket Lady
Mickey Lawler and her SKYDYES have become synonymous with the finest hand painted sky, water, and landscape fabrics available to quilt makers and other fiber artists since 1984. Mickey paints each piece of fabric individually to suggest textures and moods with subtle and rich color nuances.
In her talk, Confessions of a Blanket Lady, Mickey offers a personal, honest, sometimes poignant, often funny, definitely encouraging slide "journey" through 30 years in the life and career of a quilter - sure to entertain and touch a nerve of every quilter at some point in her own pursuit of quiltmaking.

Playing with Paints on Fabric -
In a relaxed atmosphere of warmth and good humor, students will spend the day becoming familiar with non-toxic transparent permanent textile paints, mixing, and applying the paints to cotton fabric for use in quilts. Students will paint sun-prints, leaf prints, create wonderful textures, garden fabrics, etc. and generally complete about 2 - 4 yards of fabric. The designs produced are a combination of planning and serendipity and give the students a hands-on basis for future exploration in hand-coloring fabric.
