Last Harvest

I'm putting together some special bundles from the most recent dye sessions. Strictly vintage, hand dyed damask only. The cloth is tender and not intended for garments, bed wear or anything that requires wash & wear.  Like any art medium, you don't want to leave it in strong sunlight.

Hand stitching this cloth is a dream and a lesson in control at the same time. It will have it's way unless you have yours. Under a machine needle it carves like new snow, but mind your speed.

I'm hand picking groupings of twelve random pieces, both cut and torn from the whole in this harvest so there will be raw edges galore.  Ten bookish-sized pieces -  6x8 inches and larger, all different from one another.

Until it's all gone.

Postage included in the US. $50.
Please email me for a PP invoice.

(Fat Baggies, a mix of smaller scraps of hand dyed damask, cottons and linens will still be available.)

Thank you for you patronage

Proceeds from all this glory will be funding a trip to my first writer's conference in November. A big step in a different direction, something I'm very excited about!

Fat Baggies.No seeds or stems!

Stock your sewing basket with vintage, hand-dyed scraps from the Lawrenceville Frankenstein Dyeworx.  I pick first, y'all get the leftovers and glorious they are, my customers will attest! Fat Baggies will delight.

If you would like to customize your scrap selection, give me a clue about the colorway you're leaning and I'll do my best to accommodate your emailed request.  If you'd rather leave it to me, I'll just run wild like I always do!

$28.00 includes first class postage inside the US. The bundles run an average of 1.4 pounds per the post office scale. 

Now picking from bins and tubs full of shreds and scraps of hand dyed, mostly vintage fabric - damasks of all grades, gauzy cottons, broadcloth, linens - all natural fibers that have been through the Lawrenceville Frankenstein school of Color Transformation!

please note - These are all vintage which means "tender" and not suitable for use in wash and wear things unless you are into shabby chic, in which case, you'll be thrilled at how these fabrics wear over time.

$28.00 includes first class postage inside the US.

ATTENTION international friends...sending this little packet of scraps is hideously expensive!! I just paid 9.00 to get one over the border to Canada!  Email me first so I can get you a shipping cost!!

I haven't yet figured out how to jigger the PP button so you could buy more than one at a time..if that's the case email me and I send an invoice..thanks, Therese

I'm picking from  these two baskets right now. Scraps run from mouse-sized to paperback sized with all manner of strips and shreds in between.

for added entertainment, try ironing these. Some of the damasks become almost iridescent
