A Look at Artistic Artifacts

We welcomed Great Day Washington, a local morning television program, to the shop on Monday, January 30, 2017. Pay a “virtual” visit to Artistic Artifacts as you watch video of the four different demonstration segments — surface design (block, mono- and Thermofax printing), paper piecing quilt blocks, mixed media and upcycling techniques, and hand-stitching batik panels — that were produced live that morning by host Meaghan Mooney.
