Learning a new skill – indigo dye and shibori techniques

October 18, 2017

Today’s post is all about the blue. The deep and beautiful blue of indigo dye. We’re not all about the craft parties for a change, even though it all adds to the love of creativity!

Lots of different choices and 2 different time packages with 2 hour Mini Makes and slightly longer, 3 hour full monty. Why the difference? Whether you’re a group of hens looking for a unique and […]
