Now we have it...

make the most of it! The glorious sunshine we've been having is perfect for experimenting with Heliographic printing. This decorative technique is simple and effective. It depends on direct light from the sun or a bright artificial light to fix the colour in the exposed areas - leaving the dye to vanish from the shaded areas!

Enjoy sitting in the sun waiting for the magical reversed-print transformation, your children will love it too. For best results, use Pébéo Setacolor Soleil fabric paints which work effectively for this method. Find out more...

Supplies Visit!

We welcomed Managing Director Richard Ashford and Sales Manager Kate Sherrat during their visit from Ashford, New Zealand in April. The team here at Fibrecrafts enjoyed putting the names to faces before our visitors, along with David Herring (Ashford UK), were taken for a tour of the warehouse by our Managing Director, Ian Bowers.

Photographed here by Richard; David, Ian and Kate are about to take a look at the Ashford spinning and weaving products stored in the warehouse, having just seen the range of equipment on display in our showroom.

Happy Retirement Howard

Howard left us on Tuesday and I forgot to bring the camera to 'tea and cake'! Nonetheless, the cake was lovely as usual (thanks Sylvia) and we enjoyed a pleasant break wishing Howard well for the future.

Howard, we hope you find time to indulge yourself at the bowls club and with your art group.

Wishing you every happiness in your retirement, from the Team at Fibrecrafts.
