Judy Guthrie an Inspirational & Colourful Guest Speaker

If you where fortunate enough to come to the last CMQG Meeting, wasn’t our Guest Speaker Judy Guthrie an Inspirational Woman. Judy spoke of her love for Fabric Dying in her words “It’s to Dye For” ……. Judy went through the process she uses for dying fabrics & the fun you can have if you give it ago. Judy kindly donated all of her Fabric Dying Tools, Dyes & many Books on Fabric Dying & Quilting. All these books will be set up into a CMQG  Library for our Members to borrow.  We shall also organise a Fabric Dying sessions where we can all have some Fabric Dying Fun.
