Dij Pacarro is a Fiber Artist who teaches some wonderful classes at the in Melbourne, Florida. I was introduced to her at a Seaside Quilt Guild Meeting I had been a guest at and loved her immediately. She is an accomplished Art Quilter and shows her work and teaches at an amazing Artist Cooperative Art Gallery of Viera.  The Snippets class was a chance to learn to Create a beautiful, floral art piece in the impressionist tradition using fused snippets of fabric in place of paint strokes. No sewing machine was required.
 

This was the start of my creation!
Each student received a package of Steam a Seam which is a double stick fusible web that bonds permanently when ironed. 


Quilters use it to create beautiful collages with fabric. You can quilt over it when done.
We chose some fabrics adhered the Steam a Seam and started creating! It was so much fun and Dij had great tips and ideas for how to cut out various shapes.


This is me with my finished Sunflower Creation!
