There's something about cutting shapes with scissors that transports us back to childhood — in the best way — a time when we didn't stop to tell ourselves we weren't artists... we just made things. Recapture that creative joy as you use fabric, scraps, scissors and a few simple sewing techniques to create a fabric collage.

Use our design library to generate ideas, or start with your own photo, artwork or pure imagination. We'll cut, sew, fuse, glue, and embellish our creations, then stretch them on canvas to hang on the wall. The only prerequisites are a love of fabric and the desire to play!
