E.A.S.T member Margaret has kindly sent a report on a recent workshop she attended.
"I went to the Embroiderers Guild Winter school at Ditchingham for the weekend 7/9th February. The tutor was Mary McIntosh and the course was called "Shrivel up and Dye". The tutor was excellent and well organised. She gave us a pack of Artic fleece, Artic gauze, Artic felt and about 12 different natural fabrics. These were stitched to the artic fabric which was then shrunk and dyed afterwards giving wonderful textures and a variety of tones. With excellent company it made for a lovely winter break.
