Fiber In The Forest

Just back from my first Fiber In the Forest workshop, hosted by the Eugene Textile Center.  It was great fun and I met some super great ladies!  All were very talented and willing to share their knowledge, most were involved in some aspect of fiber.  A great experience for me and I made some new fiber friends.

I took a workshop called Color Camp – 3 ways to dye with Janis Thompson.  It was great fun. Since I am a natural dyer –  my favorite was the Eco Scarf day.  The sad part is I can’t reveal my scarves until Wednesday – but here is a picture of what our scarves looked like after coming out of the steam bath.   I plan to overdye mine with Indigo – so I will show the before and then post later after they have cured and dried. IMG_20150515_125425753

More tomorrow with colorful pictures of some of our results using acid dyes and cellulose MX dyes.

Thanks to Suzie Liles, Eugene Textile Center for hosting this great time at Camp Myrtlewood, a beautiful Oregon location.  Check out their website for more information about classes and workshops.
