Natural Dye Weekend - Sept. 18th & 19th
Looking for a creative getaway? Join us in for our fourth annual dye weekend! FACTS is offering two hands-on workshops this September. Led by Jennifer Triemstra-Johnston, these sessions are ideal for needle-crafters and fibre artists who want to explore how to create their own unique natural colours. Learn how to prep, mordant, dye and rinse yarn to get incredible hues from the garden during the Saturday workshop and discover the magic of creating naturally dyed variegated patterns on the Sunday. Check out our Weekend Special if you are interested in attending both workshops!
The Huron Wristers Kits are here!
Knit something local! The Huron Wristers Kit created by Sharlene Bolen of Stitch Revival Studio is inspired by a pair of gloves from the Huron County Museum and uses locally sourced and dyed yarn for the materials.
