Adorning useful textile items with patterns, designs & colour have been around for centuries and now modern technology has brought that art into our own homes where individuals may express their own creativity with fabric paints and materials available today.

It is one of the most inexpensive crafts available and may be put to use as practical items in the home such as cushions, curtains, duvet covers, tray and place mats and a multitude of textile based decorations.

Following simple instructions and basic rules, anyone can produce a work of art that is both satisfying and useful.  Textile painting is therapeutic and rewarding in this day of high costs and stress.  Developing your own style and talent might be profitable as well in producing colourful tablecloths and cushions for friends and for gifts at special occasions such as birthdays and Xmas.  The hand-made touch is just so much more special than a bought item.
