Yesterday I had a lovely day out at The Fine Line Creative Arts Center in St. Charles dyeing yarn. What a fabulous facility, kinda makes me wish I had moved out to the burbs to have easy access to this place. They have a whole room of looms, a pottery studio, a fantastic wet lab where we dyed yarn, a jewelry studio set up with sautering irons and torches for glass and more rooms for basketry and bookbinding. What a dream. Laura Wasilowski was so kind to give us her time and guidance to embark on this adventure. My friend April came along and we were joined by art quilter/knitter extraordinare Emily Parson and three of her knitting pals.
If I was a better blogger I would have thought to bring my camera and take pictures, but I was too focused on bringing my yarn and supplies for dyeing. Hopefully Laura will send me some pics that I can post. She always brings her camera everywhere to document things. I noticed Melody, Laura, Freida and Emily are so good about this.
Just after I posted this, I checked my email and Laura had sent me this picture of April and I rinsing out our yarn.
