We are excited to have Heide returning to QSDS from her home in Germany. Heide is wearing the glasses in the photo above. She is standing with her friend, Christina who helps her at shows in England and Europe. Heide is a famed dyer and quilt artist whose work has been juried into many shows including Quilt National, Visions and the Dairy Barn's 2016 exhibition, "Mastery: Sustaining the Momentum," Which was curated by Nancy Crow.
During the first seven days of QSDS, Heide's students will work together to create a series of dyed swatches for a notebook that is sure to be an invaluable reference that you will use for the rest of your dyeing days. This is something that every fiber artist needs, so why not do it in a group with a master dyer guiding you?
During the week, there will be plenty of time to also dye yardage, using your newly-honed skills. Heide will also have advice to share about how to effectively use your beautiful dyed fabric.
