Quick update

Wow! How time flies when you're havin' fun... dyeing! I have been very busy this year doing lots of dyeing, and hope to have time in July to do those promised demos... one more show, then I get a rest until late August when I teach a dyeing class and participate in our community's annual Open Studios tour. Meanwhile, I have been experimenting in some loose accordion fold dyeing. Here are a couple of examples:

I really like the results I'm getting with this technique, and it's so easy! The garments above are both rayon, and they take the dye differently than cotton jersey does. I haven't tried this on cotton yet... maybe next month! Stay tuned, and happy dyeing!
