I am about to reveal information about my secret pleasure. Ready? I like to carve stamps.Supposedly these hand carved stamps are created to print fabric. But secretly I like to carve them just cause I like to carve them.
The stamps are carved using a sharp craft knife and a product similar to an eraser called Safety Kut. They range in size from 1" square up to 8" square and my collection numbers in the hundreds. At one time stamp carving was an obsession of mine. But I'm better now.

Want to learn more about how I carve the stamps and print fabric with them? Just tune into The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims today and you'll see the process. It's the premier of the show and I can hardly wait to see how goofy I look on screen this time. You'll want to see it to!
