Another treat I had while at the Voices in Cloth quilt show, was running into Debbie of Kasuri Dye Works. She used to own a shop in Berkeley, CA that I loved to visit. When they had sales the line to get in would wrap around the block - it was really crazy. These days, she does a handful of shows a year, and unfortunately does not have an online shop.
You can easily find information on how Shibori is created. There are many techniques. My personal weakness is for the indigo dyed pieces, as that captures a certain vision I have in my head of traditional Japanese textiles.
I have always wanted to make another kimono quilt. Many people have made them. I made one ages ago as a wedding gift. I hardly even photographed it before I gave it away. Oops. Sigh.
