Shibori and Indigo Dyeing with Sandra Johnson

We attended Sandra Johnson’s Shibori and Indigo Dyeing class today and it was amazing. We had the privilege of using the culinary arts classroom at Calabasas High School for our workshop. The fabric enthusiasts quickly got underway with different patterns and endless possibilities. Give me some space and the ability to make a mess and I am a happy guy. I’m totally clueless as to what I’m going to make with new fabric, but we both had in incredible day! Check out her blog @

Road to California 2017

A break in the current storms made for the most beautiful Southern California day. Mother nature has given us a nourishing drink of water and the sun is out. It’s a great day for a quilt show and off to Road to California we go. There were some outstanding quilts at the show and its always well organized. I was a little disappointed by the number of quilts. There were numerous challenges and exhibits and the vendors I look forward to seeing each year. Somehow I didn’t purchase a single cut of fabric. I did purchase lots of tread for many upcoming projects.
