Q&A with Princess Grace

tova dian dean asked:
This is so wonderful! Years ago I was in a silk painting factory in Thailand and they made it seem so effortless. I bought all paints and tools and realized I couldn't afford to learn to paint on silk. It was so difficult. You did a wonderful job!
Princess Grace answered:
Thank you so much for your very encouraging remarks! That is very kind of you. I went to college to study Art & Textiles. I now run my own workshops in various textiles techniques in North Wales - although I do travel all over too! :) Thank you again :)
gotsilk21 asked:
I tried sending a comment but it looks as if it didn't go through. Do you first paint on the silk and then quilt it? H
Princess Grace answered:
Yes, painting it first and then quilting afterwards on this occasion.
Unruly Stitches asked:
That is beautiful! What class did you take to learn how to do it?
