Fabric dyeing and an Online textile workshop !

Last saturday i took a fabulous class with Elaine Quail on fabric dyeing ! what a lot of fun and i just loved my results ! we dyed a 12 step colour wheel and then 4 fat quarters of mixed colours. Elaine was a wonderful teacher and a lovely lady i would definately take more classes with Elaine ! you can check out Elaine here

I have signed up to do Shelagh Folgate's online textile workshop ! It is a series of 8 workshops and the first one starts tomorrow but we got our first lesson today and it looks like so much fun !!  check out what it is all about for yourself  http://shelaghfolgate.blogspot.com/    There are artists from all around the globe signed up so should be very interesting and a lot of fun !!  Can't wait to get started just have to gather my supplies and maybe finish off a couple of ufo's and i am already to go !!

Talking of finishing it was my last embroidery guild class today till january and i really had a great time with my classes mixed media stitch with Donna Funnell   http://fibrejournal.blogspot.com/  we did a lot of fun projects stitching on painted peltex, lutrador, and assorted papers and on fabric.
