Workshop with Carolyn Sullivan, 3-4 July 2010

Want to spend a relaxing two days doing some hand stitching? Why not sign up for the workshop with Carolyn Sullivan, entitled "Kantha-New Ways"? Kanthas are traditional heavily hand-stiched domestic cloths from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanks and India. Carolyn has adapted this to modern quilting, but still retains the traditional look.

Contact the workshop co-ordinator or check the latest issue of our newsletter, Connecting Threads, for details.
