Dye workshop with Melody Johnson

I'm very fortunate to have fellow art quilter, Melody Johnson, as a neighbor in our fiber arts community. (Not a next-door-neighbor, but close enough.) During one of our conversations, we discovered we both used the same sewing machine brand--and model--for our free-motion quilting, and we bonded immediately. We are "Janome sisters" and we both love our MC 6500 Pros!

A sampling of Melody's free-motion quilting on her hand-dyed fabrics.
Last weekend, she conducted a dye workshop at my quilting and fiber arts business, and what a colorful time we all had! Her Lazy Dyer fabric dying method is fun and stress-free and Melody's teaching style is just as easy-going. We overcame the rain and gray skies and the group was very productive and left the workshop with a rainbow of beautifully hand-dyed cotton and silk fabrics.

Blending the dyes for the full color spectrum. Can you say R-O-Y-G-B-I-V ?

Special effects and dye submersion. Hope you are inspired!
