In Print!

I was so excited when the postman brought me this yesterday!




It's my advance copy of Marion Barnett's latest book, "Exquisite Evolon" and on this page:-




and this page



is some of my work!

I was thrilled to be asked by Marion to be one of the artists featured in the Gallery section. She gave us all some Evolon to play with and it's really interesting to see the diversity of the results.

If you've not come across Evolon before, you can find out what it is at the Spunart website (there's more of Marion's work there too). This little gem of a book gives you all the 'how to' (and the how not to!) information you'll need for dyeing, colouring, printing, heat distorting and stitching this lovely soft synthetic fabric.

"Exquisite Evolon" will be launched at The Festival of Quilts show at the NEC, Birmingham later this month - you can get a copy for yourself at the Colourcraft stand (No G3 ) if you're planning to visit - or from Marion after the show.

Congratulations!! I love Evolon it is great to stitch with, I used it to make my scroll map for the Sutton Hoo exhibition last year. I shall look out for the book when I go to the FOQ.
