I had such a fun morning dyeing with brides to be Denise and Janny.  It was a custom dye job but they did the dyeing.  I just did the constant obsessive chatter about indigo. Here’s the before picture.  It’s a white linen skirt now…but not for long. Into…

This is the part of being obsessive that I love.  I spent my July 4th holiday wrapping fabric around poles and then dyeing it in indigo.  I can’t get enough of that arashi. There’s so much variation within this technique.   This is one that I wrapped,…
I spent another day dyeing fabric in indigo. I did more arashi shibori - or pole wrapping. Classes available in Madison WI

That’s right. Bring a friend and you can each take $5 off the class price. I had this great conversation with my Sister in Law who said my pictures made her curious about indigo and she thought it looked way fun.  But she didn’t really want to learn a…

This isn’t a sample, this is just a yard of blue.  I thought it would make a pretty sky for a landscape quilt.  My backyard vat is getting tired, it could use more indigo. Until I add more, I’m experimenting with the different shades of blue I can come up…
Indigo 101 coming up on Sunday, June 14th. These stitched indigo samples will be on display. Heck Yeah!

The classes at Paradigm Gardens are going really well, they are super awesome to work with! I have a Shibori Class coming up on the 16th of August at Paradigm that still has some room. I won’t be offering an Indigo 101 Class there in August, though.  It’s…
Sign up for my Shibori and Indigo Dyeing class at Olbrich Botanical Gardens on August 18th (rain date August 25th)

Just a quick post to show the process of over-dying the Arashi piece I made.  I’m not crazy about the finished piece but it was worth it to learn more about the process. I’m a totally junky for learning.  That may be one of the reasons I like Shibori so…

I really got excited about arashi shibori and made a bunch of scarves with this technique.  Arashi means storm in Japanese and is made by wrapping the fabric around a pole before dyeing it. I want to try several different ways to make patterns with it.…
Playing with different shibori techniques. Arashi means storm and is also a kind of shibori.

I had an super awesome fun time making something pretty.  What could be better? First, random circles then… …messy pleating.  The messy part is not required but it’s just my way. Grab a short length of rope and… Wrap string around the rope and pleated…
A quick walk though on how to make willow pattern shibori.

Going to try dyeing with black beans!
I totally blame Pinterest for this.  I don’t know if you’ve noticed, **understatement alert** but I’ve become somewhat obsessed with indigo.   Dyeing with it is stinky, though so I am waiting for warm weather to dye some more.  But I’m impatient…as a rule.   When I saw on Pinterest that people are dyeing fabric blue read more
