Here's a lovely video that Kathy spotted on "The Japanese process of Yuzen adds hand dyed designs and colors to the traditional kimono. In this video, the entire process from initial sketch to final embroidery is featured, to show off a kimono's handcrafted beauty." Click here to see it: http://wimp.com/processyuzen/

Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) Guild
This is the Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) blog page. The group meets the first Wednesday of the month during the fall/winter/spring (September through to June). Meetings are held in the hall of St. Paul's Chruch downtown Nanaimo (across from the Dorchester Hotel - the entrance is on the other side of the church at 100 Chapel St, across the street from the new condos). 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome to come...bring your knitting, spinning wheel or other fibre addictions. Meetings usually consist of 5 minutes of business, show and tell (bring something), tea and cookies, and some sort of workshop, seminar or talk where you will learn something fibry and interesting.
