Margaret is well know for for "Burning Issues" or fusing fabric. This is done with a soldering iron with a special fine tip and uses nylon organza.
We practiced cutting organza with the tip and then went on to sealing two or three layers together on kunin felt. We also tried to make various marks with the tip of the soldering iron to create patterns. Some of us made "buttons" and used stencils to make marks or burn out different areas. The stnciled cuts could be backed or coloured
