Going down the road with the blues

...the indigo blues that is.
taking off in the early morn for the mid-west to teach a weekend workshop to a full house of 16.
boxes shipped, bags packed.
looking forward to sharing and teaching the magic of dyeing with the oldest and only natural blue dye in the world.
knowledge of indigo began in the tropics about 5,000 years ago. that's an ancient dye!


  1. Safe travels! Have fun!

  2. Have a wonderful time! I know the participants will. :)
