Natural Dyeing is May General Meeting Topic

May 5, 2021 | General Meetings

Why not change the color of your cloth or yarn to suit your mood? Natural dyeing is easy and can make use of food scraps to transform your clothing items or fabrics. Beet trimmings, onion skins, walnut hulls and avocado pits can all provide a needed lift to your dull fabric items.

On Friday, May 14th, at 6:30 pm we will have representatives from Sacramento’s own Yisrael Family Urban Farms with us. Judith Yisrael (co-founder) will be introducing their farm, and Gabrielle Rosado will be presenting “Natural Dyeing with Food Scraps”. Please join us via Zoom for this informative presentation.
