Dye Garden News

Posted by on Jan 24, 2017 in News

Our second Dye Day of January is coming up in just a few days. It is this Thursday, Jan. 26, 10:00 AM at the Spirit of Hope Church, our regular winter meeting place. Bring a lunch and your samples from the last dye session.

Our dyes will be Weld, Orange Cosmos and Dyer’s Chamomile. These respond to modifiers and we will try the iron and copper again, but at higher concentrations. If you have any of the yarrow samples, bring those along to dip (or redip). Again, smaller samples are good for these modifier experiments but you can certainly dye larger ones.

If you have any questions, please email me (e.j.york@att.net).

Hope to see you Thurs,

We have decided that the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 10 will be our dye days at the church this winter. We are taking turns taking a lead on these days. This means arriving a bit early and setting up and deciding on which colors we will be dyeing. The month of February is covered but we need volunteers for March and April. Let Donna or Annie know if you want to sign up.
