Where did you learn your textile skills?
I learnt a lot of my skills just from watching other people and reading books. I also have a Visual Arts degree and a Cert 3 in Contemporary Textiles

Good morning, Sarah. I'm glad you got a chance to take a look at some of my work. I have only been doing this since June 9th, 2011. It is really addictive. I don't know if you have ever heard of India Flint from Australia, but she wrote a book called Eco-colour that literally changed my life.
I have been doing some form of textile work since I was 9. I am now 68. My grandmother taught me to piece quilts then quilt them and I have never let anything stop me from learning more. It's in my blood. I love shibori techniques and I am learnign them fast, but the natural dyes I brew are the icing on the cake.
Hello friends! My goal is to share books, magazines and embroidery. What is the best, what that teaches step-by-step and how we can acquire. We want to know about titles published outside Brazil and is difficult. I hope this forum will help many of us. Hugs, Algeciras.
