Painting on Fabric

When my children were young I would get work where I could or work from home, mainly selling or making clothes at home for manufacturers.

I came across a company from America called Tri Chem, I went to there party plans and bought some paints.

I joined as a representative and organised my own parties, that is how I increased my own stock.

 I loved demonstrating techniques and the good quality product I was promoting.  I still today have my paints and still make items and paint them, still the same.

I have made for family, special occassions, school fetes, I started in 1976 and I still love them, they have changed in packaging but are still a good product

There are transfers (iron on) to use for the pictures, or you can free draw
