I have finally got round to stocking up my shop. All the items listed have been coloured using natural dyes. I have sat on them for a long time (at least a year) because I wanted to see what would happen with the passing of time and I am happy to report that they have remained the same as the day they were dyed. I obviously cannot vouch for long term light/wash fastness but this is probably true for all types of dye whatever the source. Here is a sample of some of my stock;
silk perle threads

I am testing the water with a stand at the Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch Show at the NEC, Birmingham next week.I will be exhibiting my new range of naturally dyed supplies for textiles alongside a small selection of eco printed items including journal covers and silk scarves plus some of my more recent work. My stand number is J06. Doors open at 9.30 am on Thursday 21st March and the show closes on Sunday 24th March at 5.00 pm.
