Hello, Print Shop!
What can your computer do for you?
Dreaming in Cotswold, 24" x 24". Designed and hooked by Maggie Bathory, Greewood Village, Colorado, 2014.
It’s time to take your art to another level by getting a little help from your computer. I know most of us don’t get all warm and fuzzy about our computers. After all, we are rug hooking artists who spend our precious hours designing, creating, and pulling loops through a foundation of fabric. Our playground is woolly and colorful, not sterile and digital. The thing is, we lose out on creative opportunities when we reject this household tool.
This simple little exercise introduces you to some key concepts that may just spark some interest to say hello to that computer you own. And it’s time to get to know the folks at your local copy store.
