And here we go!

The goal of the blog is to encourage mastery of techniques to expand our surface design skills.
Here is the format:

1.  Every month there will be a technique we will all try together and report our results.

2.  We'll take turns choosing the technique for the month.  If it is my month to choose then I will give as much direction as possible or tell you where the directions can be found.

3.  Participants may follow the directions given or, if they have their own preferred method of the technique, they may use it and explain their method.

4.  Participants will post 2-3 times per month showing their process. Posts don't have to be long and can be scheduled in advance.

5. Finished products are not required but would be nice occasionally to show what can be done with that gorgeous fabric just made.  Posts can also include failures, mistakes, and comments like "I will never do this

6.  Followers will be encouraged to try the techniques and send us links to their results. We'll post the links for everyone to see.

7.  Beginning date is projected to be Jan 2011.
