On May 7, I am doing a lecture/demonstration about Novelty Fabrics at my guild. I would like to know a couple of things: How does the artist get the motifs on the fabric? spray painted, screen painted drawn, woven, etc?, how long does the manufacturer print the fabric, 1 year, six months, popular demand? and where are the fabrics made, overseas? Japan, Java, China? are the artists in the United States or Japanese? any help will be appreciated.
