North Suburban Needlearts Guild.
After the workshop, I decided to give it a try. I ordered some scarf blanks from Dharma Trading Company and an assortment of dyes and started to collect supplies for Shibori dying. I also started the process of setting up a business. I spent yesterday afternoon dyeing twenty scarves. You can see the results in the picture above. Some of them are spectacular, some are just pretty, and a few are duds. My fingertips are teal and I am ready to order more scarf blanks and try another round of dyeing.
I am also on my way to having a business. I filed with the Lake County Clerk and my "Doing Business As" legal notice started running today. I got a graphic artist to help me with a logo, and I hope to have my Etsy shop ready to go at the beginning of May. I am going to start with a selection of colorful, hand-dyed silk scarves but I would like to expand to include nuno felted items and bags.
