Have you ever wondered how in the world fabric repeats are created? Or how you can take an original piece of art and turn it into a repeat design? I have used Photoshop exclusively over the years to design my fabric lines, and every time I do I seem to learn something new. But there are still things that I have trouble with, and I always want to learn more about what the Photoshop program can do!

I am really excited to be taking this course by fabric designer Bari J. Bari designs gorgeous fabrics for Art Gallery Fabrics, and she is going to show us how to use Photoshop to create repeat surface designs- if you have ever thought about designing fabric, this is the course for you… I can’t wait to see how Bari turns her beautiful pieces of hand painted art into fabric repeats. As many of you know, I also design my fabric using my hand-painted watercolor illustrations, so I’m really curious to see what Bari has to teach us.

This class will run for 5 days, beginning on June 1. If you’d like to learn a little more about what will be covered in the class, take a look at Bari’s video here:

This class will be presented over at and you get lifetime access to the class, which is great, because you can refer to the information again and again. The course is also very reasonably priced, so please go take a look.

And… what are you doing this weekend?? Our weekend is crammed with church activities on Saturday, a concert on Saturday night, and church Sunday morning. I always think that I am going to get work done on Sunday afternoon… fantasies, really! I usually end up just crashing, taking a nap, playing with the dog, watching a movie. I feel a little guilty about it, but then I figure that’s what Sundays are for, right?? So this weekend, even though I have a list of things to do that’s a mile long, I’m just going to try to enjoy everything and not think about what I “should” be doing. What about you?
