    I saw this ad for a class. I went to the website it listed but I don't get it. The fabric is pre-quilted and then all you do is "paint" it with markers? Any thoughts?

    I saw her demo this and bought the fabric and markers. It looks easy when done by Sherry but I still haven't gotten around to trying it myself.

    I use to crochet tabletoppers, doilies, etc from white cotton thread and then color the design with oil pastels, markers, crayons, etc. Once set the colors stay in. I think I got coloring out of my system after doing that for so long.

    Thanks everyone. I think it sounds intriguing and maybe not so hard to do:-)

    Years ago there was a system for liquid embroidery. The colors were in a tube with a ball point tip. Is this the same thing? Or something simular? This was popular about 40-45 years ago and sold at home parties.

    I remember liquid embroidery. I still have pillowcases my grandmother embroidered with the paints. The paint has not rubbed off or cracked in all these years and the pillowcases have been used a lot. She use to wash them in hot bleach water. The paint did not bleed or feather on the fabric. No special fixative needed that I remember. No one was allowed to touch her embroidery paints, they were very expensive to buy for a hobby and hard to find. I saw some at Hobby Lobby but I doubt it is the same quality as the original paints.

    I remember those! My mom had them and did some beautiful pillowcases with them. We were into that craft and painting ceramic statutes back then. I chose macrame myself but mom liked painting more. She did hang tons of plants using my macrame plant hangers! I think she gave away a lot of 'em to keep the house from looking like a jungle!
