First Dyeing Workshop!

I had fun today! I taught my first dyeing workshop for the Omaha Quilters Guild. Each person got a 3-jar set of the three primary colors. Following my recipes, they dyed 12 fat quarters.

Here they are, hard at work!

The end result was a tub full of colorful baggies.

Happy dyers, each holding their fabrics.

After being dutiful students and dyeing with my recipes, they got to play. Most people chose to dye two 1-yd pieces, other dyed half yards, and one mother-daughter team dyed fat quarters. The pictures show just a few of the colors which were dyed. So often in dyeing, the prettiest pieces are those which are created by accident. The last photo is one of the wipe-up rags - beautiful!

Isn't it great showing people what fun dyeing your own fabric is?
