knitting home spun yarn

Rebecca was taught to knit by her ‘knitting grandmother.’ If you don’t have a ‘knitting grandmother’ come and let Rebecca show you how. Mothers and Daughters or any other mutually supportive pair of beginners encouraged. $25/person, free refresher sessions during open hours. Materials available, or bring your own.  As always, barter is an option.

Indigo on silk

Bring an item of clothing or other article made of natural fiber (like cotton, wool, linen, or silk) to dip in our indigo vat. Skeins of ‘bare’ yarn and silk scarves are also available for purchase. Results are variable with this magical process but you will get shades of blue. Great for reviving a favorite article which has gotten stained or faded. $5/article, t shirt size or smaller. Children encouraged. Get the blues!  By special appointment only.
