Jane Davies wkshop

Hi All,

A full wkshop for the Kantha Quilting wkshp and two on the waiting list, though some managed to get on with a couple of people withdrawing which would have made a total of 24 wanting to be there! Is this an indication of what everyone wants and needs!

It was a beautiful, relaxing and productive wkshop with lots of deliberation about choice of delicious coloured fabrics first, then how big,small, and what position and then what threads to use!. This was followed by stitching in just one running stitch, as big or small as you wanted, in whatever direction in order to acheive a texture to the surface of your piece. the results on the day were pretty amazing but since then more stitches have been added as each piece has shrunk in size but grown in interesting textures casting shadows and highlights in beguiling ways!!!!

 I have finally edited the pictures to go with this but am awaiting some help to put names to all the work, will hopefully get this help on friday!

 We hope that everyone will be able to share this great technique with the lovely colours that can be used for our next exhibition, maybe as an installation? who knows where this can lead.

a lovely time was had by all, thank you Jane!
