Indigo Day

Long before synthetic dyes, Indigo (blue) dye was created in many cultures around the globe.  The plants and process varied from region to region, but the result was the same - a beautiful blue.   The fascination with natural Indigo dyeing still exists and there is a quiet resurrection of the process in various areas of the world.

We encouraged members to bring examples of their experience with Indigo dyeing and were delighted to see the tables full of exquisite work.  So many shades of blue and not enough time for all the show & tell.  To be continued at Dec. 4th meeting.
