Textiles: Secret Life of Fabrics

Learn what's in your fabric, how it's made and where to use it.

Are you confused when you walk into a fabric store? Have you spent hours on a project only to discover that the fabric you chose wasn’t the best one for the design? There are more than 100 different fabrics out there and more coming every day. Learn to recognize fabric types as you are given swatches of fabrics to examine and test. Learn which fabrics to use, when, where and how. Find fabric sources beyond the local fabric store. Make a notebook that will be your guide to better results. This class benefits beginner and advanced students.
