FEBRUARY

Michelle Markey

February 19 – Program – Custom Color on Any Fabric

to Use in Your Quilt Trunk Show

Michele saw her first long arm in 2002 and vowed one day she would have her own long arming business. She got her wish when she retired from the oil and gas industry in 2009 to start her own quilting business AND fabric store.  (Sometimes you should be careful of what you wish for!) After three years of running both businesses, she sold the fabric business to focus on the long arm offering custom quilting and embroidery, machine rentals, long arm and coloring fabric classes and custom digitizing.

For the last 7 years Michele has been teaching classes both to groups and one-on-one in her studio, in quilt shops and in private homes.

Several years back while attending the Houston Quilt Show I met Sherry Rogers Harrison, another Innova quilter, who completely painted her whole cloth quilts. Intrigued, I took classes from Sherry as well as Linda Poole (another incredibly talented fabric painter). I was hooked!

Since then, I have developed a niche – painting long arm and embroidery patterns (often red work or lined designs). As more of my long arm clients saw the end product, they too wanted to learn how to color on fabric. So, I began to teach and developed a series of single and Block of the Month classes that range from beginner to expert.


February 20, 1:30 pm – Workshop – Singer Featherweight Maintenance Class


February 21, 9:30 am – Workshop – Florals on a Tote Bag

Want to learn how to color on fabric? You will learn multiple coloring and painting techniques using fabric markers, Inktense pencils, paints, and fabric medium. When the class is done you will have a beautiful block to use in a quilt, pillow or on a bag. Additionally, the class will learn how to apply bling to any artwork using hot fix rhinestones.

This photo is an example of the artist’s colored fabric block.
