President's Day off gave Peggy, Sara and I a chance to get together for some dyeing. Sara had treated herself to some new dye supplies from Dharma for a Christmas present. Yet she had never dyed before, so we set up a beginning workshop. While our fabric was soaking in a solution of soda ash, we mixed up the dyes, with urea and water, and gave them some considerable shaking to dissolve the urea crystals. I can't believe how much Michael's Crafts wants for a pair of squeeze bottles. Peggy and I had been collecting squeeze bottles of Dawn from the dollar store, we emptied it into bigger containers and the 8oz. bottles were perfect for dyes. Marking every bottle with a Sharpie pen and the date.
