Featured Artist : Betty Hoaglund

Artist Bio / Statement

I have been using Silk Painting techniques for over two years with Dharma purchases. I started out of curiosity because my grandmother grew silk worms in Calabria Italy and then spun and dyed the silk. As an artist I am addicted to color and love to experiment. I created my own Stretcher frame from PVC and also use a quilting frame; I prefer clips and rubber bands to anchor the silk.

My designs are freeform with and without water based resist. The Jacquard silk salt is great for making colors pop. I purchased the 40 inch steamer from an artist friend and cut my steaming time from hours to 30 minutes. I have created and sold my silk art within hours of posting or exhibiting it.

About Tiered Discount Levels

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example; adding 4 each of 3 different T-shirts in size Large should give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.

Some products may be excluded from discounts, and / or may discount only with themselves. If you have any questions at all please contact us toll free at 800-542-5227 (no buttons, just humans).
