dyed au naturel
Interest in natural dyes is advancing.
A new book by India Flint, an Australian artist, writer and sheep farmer was featured in Quilting Arts magazine's e letter last week.
Like many i have used teas and coffee to color cottons and I saved the the stamen powder from lillies once (that yellow colors hands, tablecloths and everything it touches!) but it molded before i had enough to "brew."
For a great info/interview check out the "Go wild! Dye textiles naturally- Q&A with India Flint at the Quilting Arts blog.
