Our annual retreat was at Bennet Springs State Park, Missouri this week for three days and two nights. It was glorious weather so that we could spend our time outside. This year's focus was on Eco-Dyeing via India Flint's book by the same title.
Participants working over their found plants and silk.
Red leaves and bark
Chrysanthemum, avocado skin and various leaves
An iron pot and a copper pot hold boiling water with our silk and foliage wrapped around sticks.
 Sitting beside the Niangua River which flows out of the spring.  Soooo peaceful.
We couldn't have had better weather, food, or fellowship. The results will be revealed at our next meeting.

  1. That was one of the best retreats we've had in years! Thanks to Emmie and Sally for being such generous teachers. Can't wait to show off my dyed fabric next meeting!
