Shrivel Up and Dye in Kent

I love it when I do a workshop and afterwards students send me images of their work. Particularly the Shrivel Up and Dye workshop where the end result is not seen until the pieces are washed in a machine at home.

Just heard that my quilt 'Opinion(s)ated' made for the Contemporary Quilt Group Challenge 'In Print' will feature on the cover of the CQ flyer being prepared for the Festival of Quilts 2018

The whole 'In Print' exhibition opens on Friday 25th May at the Forge Mill Needle Museum in Redditch www.forgemill.org.uk
