Well, the truth is that I get focused on today, and don’t spend much time ‘thinking great thoughts’ like the scarecrow could after he got a brain. It’s just so much more fun playing with fabric! 2019 was a pretty good year, with happy successes and a few failures. It helped me realize that I’m very lucky to get to do what I love.
Looking forward to the coming year, I’ve finally updated my public calendar! I plan to vend at three shows, maybe more, plus I have two speaking engagements already booked! Coming up in just six weeks is the annual MAQGNet meeting, where speakers, teachers, and guilds all get together to learn about one another. If you belong to a quilt guild between Vermont and Virginia, you can find a speaker through MAQGNet!
In the studio lately, I’ve been working on a line of the basics. Since I sometimes find myself at a loss for which color I really want to dye today, I decided to look at the huge, yet limited array of the colors of Kona. Of course with hand-dyes, basics are NOT solids. I am taking an assortment to a couple of quilt shops and selling them wholesale. More on that later!
Well, this has taken rather longer than planned, so I will sign off now. Thanks for reading!
P.S. – if you wish to stay updated on what’s happening at DippyDyes, join our mailing list! We have a little PDF on washing out hand-dyed fabrics as a thank-you and will be creating a new free offer soon. You will get both!
