The background fabric in the picture below for Dreckly Quilters picture of St Cohan for the display of Saints in Truro Cathedral was dyed by Farne Designs. We were very impressed with the end result!



Two new items to mention. The first is our little Silk Ribbon booklet and the second is our new quilt backing. We are dyeing 90" square cotton for quilt backing. This is the equivalent of 4 metres of fabric and retails for £40 plus p&p. More details can be found here.

We have decided to have our own little booklets printed. The first one is entitled Dyeing2Sew with Silk Ribbon and is a great book for beginners to Silk Ribbon embroidery as well as having some interesting ideas for those already knowledgeable. There are 8 projects ranging from easy to advanced and full stitch instructions and diagrams. The booklet is £10 plus p & p.

There will be more booklets as time permits!
