Dying to Dye

Look who I've been spending the last few days with! This is Carol Soderlund, dyer and teacher extraordinaire. I simply can't rave about her enough, so I won't try.

We are working straight out, dyeing and learning and having a great time. I come home each night and pretty much fall into bed, dreaming of colors.

And look what we did in the first two days!

Yep, this is just PART of a stack the whole group dyed in teams.

Here's another shot of some sorting going on.

Tomorrow's the last day and today was a very full one...so I am off to bed to rest up! More soon.

But if you ever, ever, ever get the chance to take a class from Carol, RUN and sign up. She's amazing.


  1. Now Diane that really does look like fun! I take it she hand-dyed her shirt?

  2. Your class has added a lot of color ot the world. All that fabric looks beautiful.

  3. Carol's classes were the best thing I ever did - you will be hooked now.
    Say hi to her from mefqavoj

  4. Oh the colors! What fun!

  5. I'm so envious! Glad you had so much fun.

  6. lots of colors and lots of fun Beautiful shades of colors in the fabric pictures.

  7. Hi Diane,
    I just did some dying/dyeing myself! It's sooo much fun. Check out pix on my blog. I did it this time with my 6 year old son. Kids love dyeing too. It's a great family activity as long as you don't mind green kids.

    You posted on my blog a while back about the book I wrote, Thank You for Giraffes. I wanted to let you know that it is available on amazon.com now. I hope you will check it out!

  8. The stack of fabrics here remind me of quilter Anna Williams' work! How very colorful!
