Hand Dyed Threads

I subscribe to Linda and Laura Kemshalls Design Matters TV and I have to say that it is one of the best investments I have ever made. These two ladies have probably had more influence on me than any other textile artists.

The videos are varied and interesting and I just feel that I am sitting there in the room with them.

I was thrilled when the latest ones were about dyeing skeins of thread as I really wanted to do some and have a few boxes of Perle 5 cottons just waiting for the day.

Well - thanks to Laura's great instructions I now have the start of a great collection.

Oops Lisa! Another addiction forming fast!

They are yummy! I wonder what sashiko yarns would be like dyed like that? Thinking!

They are a great pair, aren't they! I want to have a go at the dyeing of the threads to! I'm glad you did.

I also subscribe to DMTV and agree that it is the best thing I have treated myself to in a long time. Your threads are gorgeous. I spent last night skeining some crochet thread and DMC. It is all so much fun. Cheers.
