Visit to Twin Birch & Teasel + Natural Dyes + Meeting
October 12, 2019 @ 5:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sue Szary of Twin Birch & Teasel (fiber store and fiber arts haven) has organized an amazing day of fiber activities for us in Siler City! We’ll meet with members of a local fiber guild for “Dyeing to know,” experiments with natural dyes, tour artist studios, and have a potluck lunch and meeting at Peppercorn Coffee Shop across the street. We’re also looking into tours of a local alpaca farm and/or winery.
We’re looking for people to bring dye materials and to be dye “nannies” for each pot. Let us know if you can help!
