four september giveaways!
By Patricia Belyea
This month’s giveaway features a book that I have been waiting for—Cotton & Indigo from Japan by Teresa Duryea Wong! There are four September giveaways—each valued at $35.
A quilter from Texas, Teresa takes us on a journey to meet top fabric designers and quilters in Japan, then to the fields where the cotton is grown, and on to elite textile mills. Her in-depth look at cotton extends to small workshops specializing in chusen-dyeing and to master studios dyeing with natural indigo. For stitch fanatics, there is a whole chapter on sashiko—applying white to blue!
Teresa visits the makers of fav contemporary cottons—Kokka, Moda Japan and more. She also takes us back in time to discover the introduction of cotton to Japan, and the textiles traditions that developed over the years.
For anyone interested in Japanese textiles, this is an invaluable and highly readable resource.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. The winners are Susan G of Walnut Creek CA, Mary Jo G of Conway SC, and Patricia L-B.
