Fiber Dyeing Extravaganza

The sun is shining, it's a GREAT day and we are planning a Fiber Dyeing Extravaganza.  Please click on the link to the left for detailed information.  I have also included a link to a sign up form on that page and below.

We will spend the day dyeing fiber.  4 oz of yarn is provided for you to split between the three dyeing techniques.  If you would rather have 4 oz for each technique, wool yarn is avalable at a low cost or Alpaca yarn is available for a bit more.  You are also welcome to bring a couple 4 oz lots of yarn to use.

The Fiber Dyeing Extravaganza days are a fun day.  You get to spend time with your friends, meet new friends and dye yarn.  The Fiber Dyeing Extravaganza workshop is also available as a traveling workshop.  I will bring all the equipment and supplies to your farm and put on a workshop for you.  The only thing you supply is participants, water and a stove to bake some yarn.  It's quite simple, easy to promote and a great way to have a fun, memorable event at your farm.

Okay, back to the Extravaganza we are planning for June 12 here in Defiance at our farm.  As usual, three techniques will be provided for the fee.  We also have a couple of other techniques available that include materials - Sun Dyeing and One Pot dyeing - just a $5 fee for each.  We will also have a hobo stew going on a campfire.  You can participate in the hobo stew or bring your own lunch. 

Water and shade are provided.  Wear comfy clothes, bring your wheel or your latest projects as there is usually a bit of down time as we wait for the dye to set.  Our store will also be available during the day.

Join the Fun, sign up today!
