Creating color in the Southwest

Hello all, Kathy here! I am also known(hopefully) around Etsy as Desert Dyeworks. In my non-interweb life I am a mom to a krafty and kooky 6-year.

I have been adding color to fabric, mostly silk, for about 4 years. I got started after I saw the local Waldorf school selling play silks at a local street fair. I thought to myself, "I can do that." I did and then couldn't stop. When people ask me questions about dyeing and how to get started I always warn them to be careful because it becomes an obsession.

I have been on Etsy for almost 2 years. Besides people buying things from me, my favorite thing on Etsy is browsing the "Recently Listed Items" and seeing all the creative things people make.
