Stash Diving for Color
Friday, October 15, 2021
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM (EDT)

Have you been tempted and purchased different dyed braids of wool only to have them sitting in a storage bin because you're not sure what to do with them? This workshop will explore how a spinner can pair 2 (or more) different dyed braids so that they can be combined and used in a project with pleasing color results instead of getting mud. You will leave this workshop inspired and excited to look at your stash in a whole new way!
