March Meeting - Dying with Davida

Many thanks to Davida who gave a colourful demonstration of what to do to those pale and uninteresting fibres and fabrics that we all have lurking in our stash.

This nuno felt scarf started out a little insipid for Davida's tastes.

But with a few splodges of Landscape's Opal things start to look better.

Continue adding colours and squidging the fabric to distribute and mix.

It may look a little scary at the moment but just wait.

Here's the gorgeous end result. 

All the instructions for dying with Landscape are at the top of the blog with the other resource information.

Thanks Davida

South West Fashion Week

A big thank you to Kerry for organising our contribution to the inaugural South West Fashion Week.  She was presented with a bouquet of flowers at the March meeting as a thank you from all of us.

The felt on the catwalk looked fabulous and the Convergence blog is featuring photos from the show so if you haven't checked the "other" blog out recently then click here now.
