Through her enthusiasm for batik fabrics, Roxanna our March Speaker from Hannah's Room reminded me of something I read a few years ago:
Does anyone expect stamp collectors to use their stamps to post anything?
Does anyone expect coin collectors to spend their coins to buy anything?
Then why shouldn't we fabric enthusiasts enjoy collecting and owning fabulous fabrics?
Roxanna explained with video clips the process of producing batiks. In addition, through samples passed around, we were able to follow each stage. Few of us know how many processes are involved. The skills displayed especially in the printing were impressive. Roxanna had real enthusiasm and empathy for the fabric she buys and sells.
