Summer Fun: C June Barnes

The first resource featured in our Summer Fun series is a website by a very talented embroiderer and quilter. C June Barnes uses colour, texture and dimension very strongly in her work.

Heart and Soul by C June Barnes

She has also produced a number of fact sheets which are available for free on her website here:

Topics include mosaic collage, graduation dyeing and image transfers, and provide lots of useful techniques that you might like to incorporate into your embroidery.

June also has lots of galleries of her work, which are very inspirational.

We hope that this has inspired you to pick up a needle and thread, or possibly dye some fabrics. Look out for next week's installment in our 'Summer Fun' series.
