Saturday 10:30 am - 11:30 am
XT25 Lecture/Demo Free-Falling Fabric Dyeing In this case, gravity is your friend! I dye all my quilting fabric, but instead of working with dye solution in containers or bags, I hang the fabric up and pour the dye down. With this method every piece is already a work of art. I'll show you how I mix the dye, prepare the fabric, and how cool the dye looks as it flows down the fabric. I'll have finished fabric for you to fondle and offer lots of information on supply sources for dyes, fabric, and tools so you can do this easily at home. We'll even talk about doing this with yarn.

Supplies: None.
