Sewing Family Aprons



In preparation for the annual Griffin Dyeworks Dye & Fiber Retreat, we purchased aprons from Dharma Trading Co. for the whole family. Joey found bits of material, including fabric from some old clothes, and she customized the design for each person's apron based on their favorite colors and what they wanted.


Joey talked to each family member, selected material, measured, cut and sewed onto the aprons, and voila! We now have our own custom aprons. Daddy's even has a water bottle holder! We can't wait to use these at the retreat, as well as at home when we do watercoloring, baking and crafts. Thank you, Joey.

These are lovely Joey. I think my brogan4/...(just leaving the evidence of a little chick walking across my key pad) would love to be sitting sewing with you. She makes lovely creations too. I think an Etsy shop is in the making here...

Have a lovely day

Warm regards
Suzanne

I'm always so impressed with all the things that Joey does. She's so talented and I love how she just dives in and does things. These aprons are great and will be perfect for the retreat. Which, by the way, looks like a lot of fun. I hope to go someday.
