Tie-dyeing is one of our favorite crafts to do while at the Griffin Dyeworks Dye & Fiber Retreat each year.  This year, we dyed a shirt for each of us, socks for Joey and a silk scarf.

Ercil is the best teacher!  She taught us how to prepare and fold the fabric.  We soaked the shirts in water and soda ash. 

Then, we squirted dye colors on, bagged them up, and let them sit overnight.  We also dyed shirts for children who were flood victims.

The next day, we rinsed them, and then washed them when we got home.

You always loved tie-dyeing Jennifer, starting with the big buckets of dye in our backyard with girl scouts. You have done some very beautiful tie-dyeing at the fiber camp!
