Naturally-dyed samples from the first Sustainable Stitch workshop this Saturday. Thanks to Katherine, Anna and Rhiannon (and Edie and Joe) who made the day so enjoyable. We used locally grown elderberry, walnut, onion, and also indigo and madder; made a collection of samples and had some really interesting conversations.
:: I'm running a Slow Stitch day on January 7th here in my home workshop, a few places are still available. Using naturally-dyed, recycled and reused fabrics and old threads, we'll be using traditional stitch and patchwork techniques as inspiration. You will come away with the beginnings of a unique piece of work to continue to stitch in your own time.
