I was reviewing the article Rainbow Shibori in the Oct/Nov 2014 issue. I thought shibori was stitching on fabric usually a design with a special thread. What I read was basting stitch across a piece of fabric, pulling the together, then placing fabric into a dye liquid to add colors. This article was very miss leading and has nothing to with shibori. Correct if I am wrong. E Houston
I've not re-read the article... however Shibori IS the art of making patterns in fabric by stitching, pulling it tight and dyeing.
You may be confusing it with another Japanese technique, Sashiko. This is the art of using a running stitch, traditionally a white thread, on blue fabric, to create stitch patterns.
Hope this helps.
