I don’t know about where you live, but spring seems to be a bit slow in fully coming out this year in New York City. It’s the beginning of May and it feels like the beginning of April right now with cool temps and lots of rain. In a recent newsletter, we featured a special comic-book style piece about hand-dying wool. It was written and illustrated by Michelle Edwards, a regular contributor to our newsletter. It’s sure to brighten your day and get you in the mood for spring, even if the day is cloudy.

    Michelle’s piece was wonderful! It made me want to give dying a try.

    I have some wool waiting for me to get up the nerve to dye it. I had a bad experience with some kool-aid dyed wool that I bought. I may look into the natural dyes though. Thanks!

    Tricia, in BK4K, our newsletter for crafting with kids, we had an article about natural dyes that you might want to check out.
