Fabric Dyeing Class, next week
Our dog Mr. Wolfe is very patient and loves to be out side.. He can not be there alone, because he eats rocks.. Weird!
I wash out my jars and first rinse of the dyed fabrics in the yard.. because we have a septic.. It will not hurt the septic, just don't want the added water... So I do the old fashioned, pioneer way, except that I have a hose, and not taking it to the river as they do in so many places in the world..
Procion dyes are harmless once wet.. We have a wonderful time, sharing and experiencing the joys of bright colored fabrics. We join together after the fabric dyeing for a great salad luncheon. Each time it changes depending on what the gals bring to add to the lettuce, bread and juice that I provide. Come have fun! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
