This was my first 3-day arts and crafts […]

  • Revisiting dyeing fabrics with natural and botanical dyes Pick plants, add fabrics, step back and watch the magic. Dyeing with botanical dyes (plants) creates lovely color but for the entire of my dye career I have been mesmerized by full bright color. I embraced the synthetic dyes wholeheartedly in their deliverance of a magnificent array of colors while giving a slight bow of respect to the organics.
