Island Batik Ambassador January 2023

 I'm thrilled to share that I'm starting my 10th year as an Island Batik Ambassador. 

Disclosure:  All the products shown on the video and below are provided to me for use as an Ambassador, and the monthly challenge projects.  

If the video doesn't play, please go to my Youtube channel here.

I'm honored and so excited to show you the contents, as well as the challenge projects as the year progresses.  I have so much fun with the challenge projects, and know that my quilting skills have grown because of them.  All of the Ambassadors hope to inspire you to try something new, and to definitely find and buy Island Batik fabrics for your projects.  You'll love them.
