Textiles Tuesday

Here it is - my last Textiles Tuesday for 2014. Have you enjoyed the links to interesting crafty events and websites I've shared with you this year? Today I have 13 items for you.

* Jenny Bowker has had so many requests for instructions for her Shimmering Triangles quilt that she has released a pdf digital pattern. You can purchase it from Craftsy for immediate download. It's a glorious project - check out the photo here!

* Do you need to upgrade your Electric Quilt skills? You can now take online classes direct from EQ University.

* For all you Bonnie Hunter fans - her latest mystery quilt, Grand Illusion, is now available! 

Printing with compressed sponge is so much fun. If you haven't tried it, watch this video by Lisa Walton to see how! If you are inspired to try this technique yourself, you can purchase compressed sponge here.

* Did you know Facebook has changed the rules for use of business Facebook pages? Here's a useful post by Katherine Tyrrell about how to best use your business Facebook page (not personal page) in 2015.

* Do you keep a visual diary? This article from Brain Pickings may inspire you.

* Pat Sloan has announced her new, free, mystery Block of the Month quilt. It starts in January 2015. 

* The Quilters' Guild of NSW Inc has announced a call for entries for Evolution, Change, Challenge: A Contemporary Quilt. Entries close 24 July 2015. 

* Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr are coming to teach in Australia! Bookings are now open for Brisbane workshops and lectures on 19-22 June 2015. This event is organised by Cecile at Unique Stitching. Classes will also be held in Sydney - details to be announced soon.

* Are you interested in dyeing fabric with plants from your own garden? Read which plants Myf Walker grows in her Victorian garden and see some of her work in this article from The Planthunter.
