ETA: Good questions!

  • Finished yarns are due mid-June, around the 15th.
  • I think food coloring and natural dyes would be acceptable as well. As long as it is wash and light fast, I don't see a problem. :)
  • As for colors, I think the person you will be dyeing for will list their preferences and you can be creative within that. That'll be a good way for people to work outside their comfort zone. ;)
  • Newbies welcome! I think we'll have 2 groups, beginners and those with some experience, so don't be afraid to give it a try!
