Brighton Textile Art Group meeting 11th May

Well I did it, I made it along to the meeting today and joined the group. Thank you to all the kind members who made me feel so welcomed. There was a natural dyeing workshop today, but of course I had not booked in advance. However, I took some singles spun on my Spurtzler and plied this using my hands in an Andean ply. Then I had two little hanks to dye in the onion skin and the daffodil dye baths.

Just uploaded a photo of the 2008 Brighton Big Knit in of knitting on giant needles. Have a look, there are some really funny and unusual projects shown on it and you can upload your own pieces as well.
