I have watched Jane's DVD several times and each time I learn even more! I love her words of inspiration. For example, the "smooshed ribbon technique" or "I don't want it to be perfect. I want it to look handmade because it is." Or, " I save every ribbon I've ever received. You never know."
There are great closeup shots to show details of her work. I like how the stitches are highlighted when Jane talks about different techniques.
The projects are fun and do-able! Jane is a great teacher.

I was a lucky lady last summer when I took Jane LaFazio's Art Quilt class in San Diego. With Jane's DVD release, I can re-live the class experience as often as I like. Jane is the most creative person I've met in years and she inspires others to think outside the box. This DVD will inspire your creativity, but not dictate it. There was one class last summer that I didn't do that great at -- painting an image of my dog on canvas. When I reviewed the contents of the DVD, I was less than thrilled that this technique was included. Surprise, surprise! I watched Jane's demonstration and thought, I would try this again. (My problem was not the technique, but the too small, too detalied photo I selected.) I would recommend this DVD to anyone who is willing to have fun with fabric, paints, etc - and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to truly thrill someone with a gift that will be used over and over again. Can't wait for The Small Art Quilt Number Two!

Jane LaFazio presents three separate and very different approaches to working with cloth and making art in The Small Art Quilt. She is both concise and engaging and her teaching style is very approachable. Jane's confidence and spirit both inspires and motivates me to move into the studio and try out her techniques. I have followed Jane's artistic growth through the internet and love the vigor she brings to every piece of art she creates, this video showcases that enthusiasm and simplifies the techniques she uses, making her processes easy and accessible at the same time. The details of her work and the peak into her studio are quite a treat too. I highly recommend this video.

Jane LaFazio's "The Small Art Quilt" is a great resource for the fiber artist. I got the DVD yesterday and watched it last night. It's wonderful! Jane is very clear in her descriptions, the instructions are easy to understand, and even though I have done some basic art quilts, I see how I can really add interest to future projects... I can't wait to put all this good information to use! I recommend it to anyone who is interested in Art Quilts as a creative outlet.

This is horrible. It is vey expensive and is only an overview of her techniques. There is no in depth explanation of anything. Therefore, you are not able to even try any of the techniques. I have seen better video on You Tube! Supremely disappointing and I feel ripped off.

Jane La Fazio is a great art teacher as well as a fabulous artist. "The Small Art Quilt" takes the person who is interested in creating unique small art quilts easily, step by step, featuring many different styles of art quilts. While watching Jane create art quilts that are whimsical, rich and intriguing the 'student' learns techniques to create unusual images with layers of texture, color and simple stitching.
Before long the viewer is inspired to gather thier fabric scraps,thread, buttons, ribbon, photos of beloved pets, paints, brushes and a cup of tea; to sit with Jane and create their own colorful, soft, touchable art.

Jane LaFazio's, "The Small Art Quilt" is a gem of an instructional dvd, designed for anyone with the desire to create a small art quilt. Whether you have made hundreds of quilts or you have no previous experience, you will enjoy watching and learning from this dvd. Her love of the materials and the process is evident as she gently takes you through each step, from inspiration to design to the actual stitching, embellishing and finishing. Jane's creativity and sense of humor add to the mix, and this dvd is fun to watch while you learn how to make a very cool piece of artwork!

I watched this DVD, went straight to my fabric stash and stated using her techniques! What fun!!!Everytime I see it, I pickup something new.

This is also a great DVD for children or teenagers wanting to explore expressing themselves through mixed media. With a little supervision (for younger kids) and some simple supplies - let the kids go! Do warn their parents - we had one child who went home an ripped up a few of her Mom and Dad's clothes (OOPS!) But her project was wonderful.

My favorite purchase of the year :-)
