A few years ago we started what has become a wonderful yearly tradition that we treasure. Along with our annual Barn Sale, we open the dye studio for a day of wicked color fun and exploration. We have yarn bases and rovings you can purchase to dye and we will be on hand to guide you in your dye journey for the day. You'll hand-paint and also have access to an indigo vat for dipping and any other color fun we can cook up. We have a wicked new drum carder, so if you are a spinner you can make yourself a batt or two. .
In order to accommodate everyone in a way that assures the most positive experience for us all, we take reservations for the dye aspect of our day. The reservations are $15.00 which holds your spot and goes toward the cost of the day. Each time slot is 2 hours long, a good amount of time for a hand-painting experience. We will be there to give you the basics and to hold your hand as you bring your color vision to life on yarn (or roving). If you feel like you need more than two hours for your hand-painting experience please do sign up for more than one slot.
There are 4 time slots on Saturday June 11th: 9:00am to 11:00am, 11:00am to 1:00pm, 1:30pm to 3:30pm and the last slot is 3:30pm to 5:30pm. Please arrive early to pick out what you want to dye. Those of you with the 9:00 am slot can come at 8:30 to pick your yarn.
If you are coming just for the Barn Sale you do not need reservations. However, yarn leaves here pretty fast so come early!
BARN SALE hours are 9:00 to 5:00 on Saturday June 11th @ the big red barn in the land of Blue Moon 56587 Mollenhour Rd. Scappoose 97056 We will post directions on the blog the week before the sale.
PS: Just to be crystal clear this is not a formal dye class. We will be there to inform and guide you in anyway you need. We hope you will join us, it is great fun!
The cost for this dye adventure is the $15.00 registration fee and the cost of the fibers and yarns you choose to dye.
