Extreme Embroidery 2

Tonights class went really well, it was the last night for this particular class and the students were either finished with their pieces or were nearing being finished.

They are continuing on to Extreme Embroidery 3, which I'm doing completely differently. Every 15 minutes we will do a different technique, for two hours - three Tuesdays. During the first class we will do silk fusion so we can make them into bags or wall hangings in class two. I'll try to remember to post photos tomorrow of the piece I made for EE2.

Now I"m on to making constructed cloth bags, for an upcoming class, and wine bottle gift bags, again for another upcoming class. Oh and then there's the constructed cloth scarves, and the painted scarf class.

I'm going to be busy making holiday samples for the shop windows as well so if you don't hear from me I'm probably asleep in front of my sewing machine, or my Janome Expression.

I'm a first year graduate student (in Fibers) at the University of Washington.

I'm very interested in learning more about compost dyeing. Where can I buy you book, and how can I learn more about possibly taking your class?

Hi Grace

You can purchase the Compost Dyeing book at my Etsy.com store


The classes are offered in house, at the store, only right now. I'm working on video taping them and will offer them on DVD soon. You will be able to purchase those at my etsy store as well.
