Preparations for Two Shows....

For the past few weeks we have been dyeing fabric, fibers and I swear anything that didn't move, in preparation of vending at two different locations.  Kristin will be setting up this weekend at QSDS in Columbus, Ohio, she will be there from Monday, May 30th until June 12th.  I will be headed to North Carolina Quilt Symposium in Raleigh, June 2nd through June 5th.  Really didn't think we would ever finish dyeing all the things we had planned for, but somehow we to package it. 

 We haven't done any specialty pieces in a very long time, too busy dyeing fabric that could be easily replicated.  Upon being invited to be a vendor at QSDS we decided we could do some special pieces of fabric. We dyed a variety of silks and cotton fabrics, these circles below are on silk, they are so yummy.  At one point Kristin came into the dye studio and asked if I was having fun....I said no, all I could think of was how tired I was....then I started rinsing out some pieces and voila....I was having fun.  I actually stood there clapping I was so happy with what I saw.  Hope you all will think so too.
 Love this wonderful stack of fabrics which remind me of the colors of a rainbow. 
Below is one our newest additions to our product line...2 sizes of hand dyed ric rac....they are really pretty.  We had wanted add ric rac for a long time was the perfect time.  Less shows means more time to play in the dye studio.  

The sad part is that we did not have enough time to dye enough to supply both booths with all of these goods in great numbers...we did try really we did, but if you stop by either location you just may find a goodie you just cannot live without.  

Be sure to say Hi and introduce yourself....we love making new friends.
