In the Better Late Than Never category, here’s a report on our May, 2007 meeting:

Cheri shows

Cheri Bridges of Ah! Kimono taught a fabulous workshop on Japanese shibori dyeing.
Cheri’s samples

Cheri brought some wonderful samples to inspire us! The pieces in the picture are all her work — the indigo fabric in the first picture was made in Japan.

Silk scarves could first be underdyed, or not.  Then they were folded and carefully stitched in various patterns.

Ready for my (dye) bath!

The stitching is pulled up tight to create a resist, and the scarf is ready to go into a second dyebath.

Finished scarves

Here are our finished scarves —

We loves our scarves!

And here we are, wearing them!
