The Dye Bag

Cathy Beach and Karen Churchill gave us a very informative talk on dyeing fabrics last Monday (16 September).  They talked of how they met as teachers and how their friendship grew as they discovered they had many shared interests.  Over time this led them to starting their own business, and they haven't looked back since!

They explained how colours work together, showing us Brights (magenta, turquoise, lemon yellow) and Muted (scarlet, indigo, golden yellow) shades.

This was wonderfully displayed in their banners.

Cathy and Karen then explained the process of dyeing cloth and the length of time it took to get the best results.

They showed us some wonderful pieces of fabric and explained how to get different effects.

Some of their fabrics have been made into stunning quilts.

Thank you Cathy and Karen for a wonderful and inspirational evening.
