You certainly know how to keep me busy. I’ve been listening.
- New Shapes! Ietsie Pietsie Pizzicato, which I am calling Pizzicato for short.
- New Live Video! Friday Night 7 pm Eastern
As usual, there is a LOW intro price for one week only.
Russ reads every word of every shape collection out loud to help me proofread. He laughed every time he read “Ietsie Pietsie Pizzicato.” I have never heard these words before but I can confidently say that he did not pronounce any part of it correctly.
Ietsie Pietsie is a bit like Itsy Bitsy.
Pizzicato is a playing technique that involves plucking the strings of string instrument, like a violin or guitar.
I will probably never pronounce any of this correctly. I learned how to read with phonics before I was old enough to go to kindergarten. I pronounce words with a Canadian accent and the way they are spelled. Here is a pronunciation link for the purists.
My pronunciation may be suspect but the shapes to print on fabric are absolutely perfect. You will love the results when you start with precise shapes!
Ietsie Pietsie Pizzicato includes new sizes of hexagons, diamonds, triangles, and stars. It is a great addition to your collection of collections!
LIVE VIDEO 08
Your reaction to the live videos energizes me. I’ve been getting ready for another one. I hope you will join the fun.
This time, I will share tips for finding what shapes are available, what to do when you are just missing one or two shapes, and how to make a request. This sounds straightforward but I have a LOT to show you!
The list of requests seems to get longer every day. When I took the shape collection for Ietsie Pietsie Pizzicato off the list, I added three more.
The original plan was to announce Pizzicato in the live video but I have prepared so many good demos that I could be talking all night, so you are hearing about it now.
HOW TO WATCH LIVE
Go to the Inklingo Facebook Page.
When: Friday, April 6, 7 pm Eastern Time. World Time Buddy tells you what time that is in your time zone.
There is no sound until you hover over the video and click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner. The video should play immediately but if it doesn’t, please refresh the page.
Please tell your friends too because Google (gmail) and Yahoo have changed the email rules to make it harder for blog emails to be delivered.
FACEBOOK IS GETTING GREEDIER
Some of you may have noticed that I have not been posting as often on Facebook. When I post something, Facebook often only shows it to 50-150 of the 44,800+ quilters who have liked the page.
That means that even if you have liked the Inklingo Facebook Page you probably are not getting my photos in your timeline. Facebook wants me to pay every time I post something to show it to a few more quilters—never everyone—so it is up to you to visit.
REPLAYS ON THE BLOG
Watching live and interacting with comments is great fun but every video is also available to watch later. When I post the replays on the blog, I add links and extra info. There is a list under the Video tab on the website. Video Tab

PRINTING ON FABRIC
If you want a little review or a short introduction to printing on fabric, this 8 minutes is Time Well Spent. There is also another very short video on the Main Beginner’s Page showing how to prepare fabric sheets for printing with an Inkjet.
Here are the links again.
