Hi Everyone........I have just been using some stencils bought online from the USA.. I have never seen such a range of stencils in any one place!!! Do have a look at "The Stencil Company"..........you won't be disappointed I'm sure.....and they were so very helpful when it came to sorting out the cheapest way of posting it over here!! Best Rosemary

Hi Rosemary are these the plastic ones that you 'trace' or use pounce with ? If so I will certainly have a browse.

I have been looking for many of that sort to allow me to add more interest to my projects.

I went to the Newark quilt show on Friday and found 2 stalls selling loads of them. I bought 10 from QU1LT stencils

www.qu1lt.co.uk [01427 848979] it is a number one [1] not an I in the email address. They must be relatively local to Newark as they said they were going home each night. they also sell lots of quilting accessories.

when I went to the Harrogate sewing/craft event back in the autumn I was disappointed not to find any one selling them.

I think the art to those flat plastic stencils are 1, make sure they are well adhered to the surface and flat., 2, dab with light amounts of paint in a very vertical fashion. Havnt tried on fabric , but thats what we did with out decorative painting effects, when i studied years ago.

Hi all,

Just reading through your comments with regards to fabric stenciling and have had some thoughts of my own for doing a technical feature in the magazine on this subject. In the past I have designed and cut my own stencils for fabrics and wonder how you all feel about learning the technique. It's relatively simple, but does involve a scalpel!

I'd love to hear your thoughts and also the type of designs and motifs you like.

Emma

scalpel handling was my stock in trade so very comfortable with blades .[biologist in a former life]

I tape mine in place and using a pale fabric pencil draw the lines and then sew small sections at a time. I don't draw all the lines so that they don't rub off.
