Since starting a bit of my own hand dyeing Ann Johnston is definitely a name that seems to be popping up all over the place for me.

    Ann is a real respected authority on that subject, as well as making her own beautiful well recognized art quilts. I did an interview with her a while back and she is a very sweet woman. One thing I found out, she lives not too far from me. She just built a new beautiful light filled studio with windows opening onto a natural mountain like setting, with the idea in mind of teaching classes there, She has now opened up a wonderful opportunity,in which she teaches small groups of 10 to 12 ish there in her beautiful studio..It enables personal attention to be given to each student.I’m so tempted, but it will have to be on the back burner for a while, due to my finances. Drat,ii would be such a amazing opportunity to be taught by one of the best.

      Lucky you to live so close, I’m sure you will make the opportunity happen sometime…the setting sounds idyllic

    I don’t know about you but I love to make my fabrics different and out of the ordinary whenever I can. My fav is Tie Dye with overdye coming up a close second. I do need to learn more techniques.

      Now I’ve got over the initial hurdle of beginning to dye I’d like to learn lots of techniques too. It’s such fun and will be great to get interesting and surprising results.
