Norfolk Open Studios

This is one of the geysers at Rotarua! It looks like a moon landscape with all the grey earth and bubbling mud. Lots of inspiration for textiles!

Norfolk Open Studios is on the go! It was very quiet last weekend I think everyone had gone to the beach with temps hitting 28 C.
Do come and visit me if you are in the area 29th & 30th May and 5th & 6th June. I look forward to seeing you.
email me privately for more details.

Dyrect Dyes In Aus

A message for those who dyed with me in Melbourne!
Bailey Curtis [who set up Omega Dyes] said that Dale Rollerson from the Thread Studio has used dyrect/ direct dyes in the past so she may know suppliers in Aus.
Failing that you can order them from Omega Dyes and they will send them to you, as one student on the course did.
I was reading the latest issue of the Surface Design journal last night and noticed that ALJO MFG . CO. DYES advertises direct dyes website
I hope that helps!

Our trip

We've just returned from our trip to the southern hemisphere and a great time was had by all!
The photo is of Mount Taranaki in the North Island, close to where our son-in-laws parents live.
We spent two night in Singapaore and then two weeks in NZ followed by a week in Melbourne where I was teaching at the Australiasian Quilt Convention. I have to say that everyone we met was very friendly, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Now back to the real world! Lots of teaching coming up as well as C&G courses - more of that at a later date!
When I have sorted out my photos I will add more. That's all for now!
