Helen Deighans book on braiding is packed with ideas for using the wonderful Kumihimo tools – including adding beads as you braid!

An experienced author and teacher, Helen uses her skills to explain the techniques in a non-technical, easy to follow way. Her enthusiasm for this craft shines through, making even the most reluctant sewer want to have a go.

More about Helen Deighan:

As a professional textile artist, I’ve been making quilts since 1984.

Initially working from existing patterns, I soon started developing my own designs. And, when I couldn’t find the right colour or shade to fit – I dyed my own.

Over the past ten years I’ve created many exciting dyeing effects using everyday household objects – from cat litter trays and drain pipes to my now famous plastic freezer bags!

My latest passion is designing and making textile coil pots.

I have a studio in rural Hampshire. It’s purpose built for both dyeing and sewing, with plenty of light and space – the perfect environment for my classes and workshops.
