November 19, 2019 – Mindy Kshywonis is presenting the program “Ink Lingo”. Mindy discovered INKLINGO last year on YouTube. She initially asked for the free demo patterns and became hooked. INKLINGO basically prints the pattern pieces on the back of fabric with an inkjet printer with intersection points marked for super easy alignment without templates for complicated stars, hexies, etc. Many sizes and combinations offered. One must prepare the fabric by ironing onto appropriate shaped freezer paper which can be used over and over. Pieces are closely aligned so as not to waste fabric and another configuration allows for speedy rotary cutting. Fussy cutting possible for kaleidoscope quilting and for the millefiori designs too.
