August 2010 Meeting

Herb Morehead of Marble Falls presented a program on hand dyed fabric at the August meeting of the Brownwood Quilters Guild. Mr. Morehead has been dying fabric for about 30 years and he brought some beautiful pieces of fabric for us to see as well as purchase. It is a fascinating process with gorgeous, as well as surprising, results.

In the afternoon he held a workshop with about 10 members participating. Each person was given 12 fat quarters along with the dye and other supplies needed to dye their fabric. He gave instruction on the dyeing process and sent everyone home with instructions on what to do the next day to complete the process. Next month those that participated will bring their dyed fabric to the meeting to show the guild members the finished result.
