We are Growing!

We natural dyers are attracting more and more people every day.  I am so happy to see the new faces that join the group and that are learning to create beautiful fabrics and fibers in such a sustainable fashion.  The other amazing part of this group is that we come from all parts of the World.  Even though our languages are different, our plant varieties different, we somehow manage to communicate the processes of dyeing with plant materials so that everyone understands them.  With so many wonderful blogs being added around the world, even those not subscribing to Facebook can get the information they need.  I have found the natural and eco dyers to be open and willing to share any and all tricks of the trade they have.  By sharing the skills, we share the joy of what we do.  When we share photos, they say so much more than do the words.
I encourage all of you who read my blog to participate as much as you can with your fellow dyers.  Freely exchange information and your own work will improve from that exchange.  Share photos when you can, you don't need to be a fancy photographer either.  Ask questions.  After all, we are all here for the same reason.  We love to dye naturally, we are all learning and even if we have been doing this for many years, there is always something more to learn.  Enjoy the day.


  1. A very good platform to gain knowledge from experts like you. I first found people (not my real friends indeed) in Facebook who joined the group of "Found, Dyed & Stitched". Amazingly connected with you all excellent people. That's the beginning of my experiments of plant dye, rust print..... So much fun. I'm in Hong Kong, a fast place that people have no patience of crafts.... I can only share here and get info via your group. So glad to know you people.

  2. We are glad to have met you on Facebook also, Terriea. By the Way, you bag with the felted flowers is lovely, and a really great way to sow your work. I understand your isolation with no fellow crafters to share experiences. Please feel free to comment on my blog or ask questions or must stop by to say hello. If I can be of any help, please let me know. Have a great day.

  3. I would just like to say what pleasure viewing your wonderful creations has given me - so glad I found your blog!
    Many thanks.

    Will be visiting from time to time to learn more :)

  4. Thank you so much, Barbara. I hope you were able to find something to help you. Feel free to drop by anytime. I will be back on Stitching Fingers soon.
