Dyeing with Doreen
20 October 2010
Quilt Association trustee, Doreen Gough, demonstated the art of dyeing in a jam jar to the local quilt group - Welsh Heritage Quilters, at their group meeting on 20 October. Doreen has been hand dyeing fabrics for nearly a decade now, and likes to experiment with a variety of fabrics, everything from quality silk to dishcloths from the local bargain basement. After delighting her audience with gorgeous turquoise and purple dyes and fabrics, Doreen showed some of the quilts she had made with her finished textiles.
The Welsh Heritage Quilters has a full calendar of activities throughout the year. They meet on Wednesdays, 2 - 4pm, at the Minerva Art Centre in Llanidloes, home of The Quilt Association. If you would like to find out more, or join the group, please come along on any Wednesday.
