I was lucky enough to take a 2 day dye class with Heide locally here in Scottsdale with 12 other women hosted by Marla Hattabough at her studio. 2 days was definitely not enough time with Heide and I will look forward to a longer class one day. Day 1 was spent doing crossover gradation dyeing. What fun! The colors are all yummy too. We started with 2 1/2 yard pieces and we all dyed 6 of them to be divided up at the end so we all had a set. I could stare at these for hours. The weather was spectacular and we did most of the work outside. Poor Heide thought 80's was too hot.
These are all the crossovers

I am in the process of washing out all the fabric I dyed yesterday. These will all be multicolors. From what I can see so far they are gorgeous. More later.
I am a retired Interior Designer who gravitated over to quilting. I have gotten into Art Quilts and fiber art as they fit my personality better. I currently live in Arizona where the sunsets are spectacular. I will miss my helper, Sammy.
I have fallen in love with dyeing my own fabrics. I just love being a mad scientist at times.
I am now on Facebook... feel free to be my friend. http://www.facebook.com/sherryl.buchler#/home.php?ref=home
