New Carol Soderlund & Melanie Testa Dyeing & Surface Design Book

September 1, 2016 § Leave a comment

Some years back a friend and I went to Nancy Crowe’s Timber Frame Barn in Ohio for a week long workshop on dyeing fabric with Carol Soderlund –  the best workshop I have ever taken!  We learned so much! And  each student went home with a three ring notebook containing the fabric swatches and their recipes for making every color.  I still use the notebook frequently. It is a treasure!


 from Carol Soderlund’s post
Melanie Testa and Carol Soderlund will have their new book on color, dye and surface design. which is   published by Pokey Bolton of Crafting a Life, LLC.   This book will add to the knowledge bank of dyers, printmakers and designers  everywhere.  I can’t wait for it to come out!
