Marigolds and More!!!

 My first ever newsletter went out this afternoon!  I will be sending one out once a week from here on out, now that I've spent some time learning how to use MailChimp.

Here are a few of the things discussed in my newsletter in case you missed it!

I am inviting you to join me at the Natural Surface Academy in 2014 to participate not only in the Marigold Project BUT to also unleash that creative prowess you know is lurking deep inside of you!
  • 2014 will start off with a Splash as we work on our 30-Day Cold Dyeing Project, I will be using both marigolds AND madder root with Wool, Silk, and Cotton Fibers.
  • We will go to extremes with our natural dyed fabrics, fibers, yarns, and more in my Extreme Embroidery class! 
  • Get down and get gellied when we print fabric and paper with natural dyes using a Gelatine Plate for printing!
  • And this is only the beginning!

30 Day Challenge Samples

Samples from 1998 from previous 30 Day Cold water trials.  These will be  used for the 30 Day Challenge I'm holding at the Natural Surface Academy this winter.  I will put my notes into an eBook for Academy members, along with scans of the samples.

The Natural Surface

Making some major changes at the Natural Surface!!! 

Red Oak Leaves

The leaves on my red oak are especially brilliant this year, I suspect it is due to the late season rains after a long hot drought this summer.  I will make some bundles using the bright yellow leaves this week and will report back on the colors achieved.
