members dyeing day

We had a wonderful dyeing day today facilitated by Margaret McQuillen. Some people stitched and most did some dyeing. Margaret took us through the basics of procion dyeing then we dyed fabrics in a tray, then did some exchange dyeing in jam jars and finished doing some experimentsl work with plastic bags and dry dye. Everybody has gone home with loads of fabric and thread to dry and then iron. Thank you so much Margaret from us all.
