Friday Fun – Sumer Camp – Natural Dye

After my workshop with  Catharine Ellis

What a great time I had after my workshop in Nashville. Food, fun, and laughter was had by all. Check out my dorm room. Bed was not so good. But everything else was great.


God does not look at my outward appearance. He looks at my heart. 1 Samuel 16:7

Friday Fun – Saving Old Clothing

So how many times do you come across old clothing that you know there is a new purpose for but something stops you from creating something new.

This happens to me all the time. So one day I just jumped in and

It is by the grace of God and his love that I am saved by my faith. Ephesians 2:5

Friday Fun – The Truth about Natural Dyes

Shakerag – Natural Dye Workshop with Catharine Ellis

My experience was Fantastic! At the start of the week we learned about the vocabulary of natural dye. Then as the week went on we jumped into the timing and printing of the wool and silk fabrics. Catharine is a great teacher and passionate about natural dyes. Her passion spills over on to each of her students.

I would recommend her workshop if you want to know everything about natural dye. And you go home with a notebook with all the information needed to dye on our own.


Experiencing God and his truths, not knowledge about him and them, gives me abundant  LIFE 17:3
