Shibori days

Remember the 30days/ways to fold and dye your fabric in November? Let's do it for another month, with another shibori technique, stitch for example.

In Octobre 2014, I will be hosting this Shibori theme.
If you feel for it, please join me on our new discovery tour. Send me an email at verfvirus@gmail.com and I will introduce you to the Fire Community!


To wet your appetite, some pictures of last summer:

  2. Gorgeous pattern, Nienke! I have done some simple stitch shibori in the past, but nothing this intricate. I look forward to following your posts in October!

  3. I love your patterns as well. I would love to work with you, but October is "difficult" month for me, but would you be interested in a general outlook - history and some outstanding artists - in shibori? as a complementary post?

  4. Stitching these shibori motifs on a November night in front of the fire or TV sounds like a wonderfully creative way to spend the evening. I am looking forward to it!!
