Ann, I'm sure that in quilting circles it the most common spelling/typing error made, and it always amuses me.
I get things wrong all the time. One of my most recent mistakes, when filling in a form in school, with very little time: 'Jack has been given a lunchtime detention because he kept using fowl language in the technology lesson.'

I am usually a good speller but tonight I guess my proofreading skills were left on the door step. So you are right it should have been a dyeing DVD. Well that is one more mistake today for me. Hugs, Ann
I have been advocating a dying DVD by Justin and Jeff and Ellen (I think that is the name of the other dyer at Ricky's Studio - senior moment right now so if I am wrong, I apologize) I know that they do dying in gallon jars and some other techniques that those of us without a lot of space could use. So JUSTIN please please please do a DVD and the rest of you send comments here and on the contact line to Justin. Ann (a wannabee dyer)
PD, I have really liked qnm alot. Almost every thing out there has stuff I don't like. I always read them on the newstand to see if there's anything worth buying them for. QNM always has a magnificent quilt on the cover, and lots of great ones as well. There's always a new paper piece block. I don't know I like reading the columns as well. Jan
Quilter's Newsletter?? I've subscribed since the 70's - for a long time it was the only thing out there. But recently I had decided to give it up - too many bunny and chicken quilts! But I have had a new interest in ombres - Sewing w/ Nancy has a series on it - so if QN has started to feature more contemporary topics, maybe I'll hang in there.
The article in Quilter's Newsletter is on making ombre fabric. This can be done easily at home. It is the gradations of the ombre that make the fabric glow. You all would like it. It is in the latest Nov/Dec issue. Jan
I have done the La Veta dye sessions and the time and money are both well spent. You will learn multiple methods of dyeing and special effect techniques. We dyed 20 yards of fabric in two days. Some of the methods can be used in small spaces and for small amounts of fabric. I highly suggest that a La Veta dye session be in your future. The picture of me was taken by Ricky at the dye session. They were picking on me because of my armpit length gloves. Betty Ann in RAINY Florida
I am going to a La Veta retreat in a couple weeks, and was considering attending the dying workshop that starts a couple days before the retreat. I decided that I am going to have to attend the dying workshop at a later date, but REALLY look forward to trying fabric dying someday. My biggest challenge is having the space to try it (no mud room nor basement with a wash tub, etc in our house) so I am a little "space challenged". I have heard that some of the dying in the La Veta workshop is done in cut 2 liter bottles, so it may be something that is easy for at home dyers. I would love to start learning (at least on-line) as I know I will eventually give it a try! Great idea, Eileen!!! Mary Kay
