Silk shading with RSN tutor Kate Barlow
On the 21st and 22nd June we had the pleasure of welcoming Kate Barlow to our studio where we were taught the beautiful technique of Silk Shading creating a stunning little Viola (which can be seen below). Silk shading is also known as painting with threads. Its a lovely technique and the class was wonderful.  Kate Barlow who is a RSN tutor was so lovely. We have some pictures below of the class for you to see. We will also add a full write up on our blog.

Top Selling products for May
See what everyone else has been buying in the past month, maybe it will give you some inspiration.  
Glitz wiresThis has been flying out this month, a great cost effective wire to practice with, get kids involved in embroidery or even to give a slightly chunkier effect to a project. It is a very versatile wire and is available in a variety of colours including the peacock which is pictured here on the right 
Transluent ThreadHas been knocked off the top spot this month but still in the top 3, and i am sure we all know why. This is a must have thread for any Goldworker, available is lots of different colours but the Honey is always the most popular, as it disappears against gold threads and wires. 
Jap K1K1 Jap is one of the main threads in Goldwork, and one of the Japanese thread range. The K1 or size 12 is the most popular and the largest in the K Jap range. Also available in K2 and K4 as well as items in the TJap range
