Resources

The following companies and individuals are resources used by some FRCQ members. While they are listed here as a starting point for artists, the board does not endorse them per se. Each artist should research the company and decide for themselves whom they do business with.

 


 

3/2/2022.  MaryAnne, a local girl scout in the process of earning her Textile Artist Badge has been using our website for inspiration.  She found the following link and thought we could all use some of the included tips.  Thank you, MaryAnne!  Very best of luck to you on your Textile Artist Badge.  We would love to see what you and your troop members create!
