Mehmet's Class

Getting ready for Mehmet's Santa Fe Class, last time we were there it was 2005.
So for the first time since 2005 I am cleaning wool and getting ready. How do you get the madder root out of the wool fiber after you dye it?? The colors are wonderful although can't be used for my FeltUnited project.


FeltUnited - International Day of Felt – October 2nd 2010

Felt – intertwined, bound together, forever as one - United.

FeltUnited's theme for 2010 are the colours

from yellow through green to blue. Another piece of the colour wheel. The

same rules apply as last year, it is okay if you use another colour in your

piece, but no more than 3% if you want your work to be included in the

online exhibit.
So, write it down (Oct 2nd, 2010) - invite others and ...tell the world that

FeltUnited day is coming!
