Treadles to Threads Dye Day 2018
10 am – 3 pm Saturday
Wendy’s house, Lafayette
June 16

Boro and Sashiko Inspired Cotton Fabric Dyeing 
and Stitching Workshop

We will be dyeing fabric and hand stitching pot holders during dye day this year!

Fabric dyes, un-dyed cotton fabric, white thread, embroidery needles and thermal padding for the inside of the pot holder will be provided by the guild.  Instruction on how to use the Marabu Shabori Kit Fashion Spray and basic embroidery stitches will also be provided. If you are interested in purchasing an individual dye kit for yourself in addition to the dye shared with guild members, contact Wendy by Sunday June 3. Kits are $15.  

An indigo dye pot will also be available for dyeing T2T member’s individual projects.

This should be a very fun, very blue day!  Please join us!

Bring a bag lunch. 


A very big thank you to all who came to support the Winery event. Especially those who came early for set-up, braved the cool wind all day, and still stayed for clean-up. You were super.

We had 147 paid attendees, plus another very successful raffle! There was a smaller number of vendors this year, mostly because of the early date with somewhat short notice for them. But our members filled in with some great items, with several people gifting more than one item. Another big thank you to all of you also. Member Linda B's Ashford Charkha was a hotly contested item. Happily, it garnered a good number of $5 tickets, sadly, the winner was not from our guild, but the winner sure was happy and surprised. 

T-shirt design winners were: Pam Murdock with a fabulous quilt made not only  from last year's t-shirt, but also some from previous years T2T t-shirts. Vickie Marchand with a lovely, dyed, deconstructed, reconstructed and embellished t-shirt. Vilija with a "Sharpie" drawn grape arbor theme with two happy sheep and one pooping a ball of yarn!

Spinning at the Winery provides T2T with the funds to have workshops and/or dye days for T2T members during the year at no cost or sometimes very little cost to the members. Its why we try hard to encourage everyone to donate to the raffle and to come and work on the day of the event if at all possible. 

With these funds we are able to provide the supplies needed for this year's June and July dye days. We try to make our activities as inclusive as we can and as affordable as we can,
