A really interesting way to Spin

This is a really interesting way to spin those mixed fibres that aren't strong enough on their own!

Indigo Film Premiers in Santa Fe

What a pity we're in the UK not the US.  A new film about indigo was premiered there, on 6 July, featuring Hiroyuki Shindo, a contemporary Japaneses textile artist and master of indigo.  The highlight is the filming of the whole process of making and using a fermentation vat.


This lovely little blog give a glimps of what might be expected in the film: http://kyototrip.blogspot.com/2010/10/hiroyuki-shindo-and-little-indigo.html

Colour Palette of the Month - July!


Last September I took my youngest up to Aberdeen University and we stopped by the Winter Gardens in Duthie Park.  What an amazing afternoon we spent there and I spent most of that time photographing the plants and flowers.
This months inspiration is one of the many beautiful flowers.
I absolutely adore this colour palette and think it might find it’s way into my new fabric collection to be launched in October.  What do you think?
By the way, can any of you identify the flower?
It'll be a challenge to dye with naturals, don't you think, so let me know what dyes you'd use?
