Soy wax batik with Jennifer and Pris

Pris Lynch explaining the process of soy was batik.

Jennifer Gould holding some of her
soy wax batik samples.

Guild members and guests work on small samples of batik using melted soy wax and thinned paints. 

Jennifer Gould shows a long screen printed sample she
did at Susie Krage's "mystery workshop" in Detroit using
fugitives (watercolor pencils, pastels), paper resists,
textile paint and base extender.  
Show 'n Tell provided us with a look at members' work they'd done the previous month.

Wendy Rice's free form machine embroidered
quilt piece.
Marty Swank showed a carrying box
covered with fabric that folds flat.

Crimp Weave sample by Jennifer Gould.  Lavender fabric below shows
how the initially woven fabric has white threads that are pulled to contract
fabric.  The lavender is a thermoplastic Orlon acrylic yarn that, when
steamed,  shrinks permanently creating a crimped and elastic fabric like
green above.
