The October challenge for the 2021 Island Batik ambassadors was sponsored by Aurifil Threads and inspired by endangered species.
Each thread collection contains a light, medium and dark colour of thread and represents an endangered animal.
These projects are designed to highlight both the thread and the animals. Click on the pictures for more details about the projects.
