Shop Shutdown

I'll be gone for a bit. Shop will be closed as of 8/4 until I get back but I will ship as late as Friday morning- the post office is on my way out of town!


Minimum orders are four skeins, that's 20$ plus 2.50 postage for a total of 22.50, still a steal for 40 yards of wonder!

First come, first served...Please email me with your choices, BUT give me eight to choose from, and, if you trust me, I'll select four from the spectrum for you that won't disappoint.

The Dirty Threads are still 10+ yards each, hand dyed 6-ply DMC cotton.
Despite appearances, NO TWO ARE ALIKE, so keep that in mind if you are in any way anal about dye lots and such. Additionally, there are changes as you go deeper into each skein. This is some serious mystery stuff, folks, only for the bold!

These are created one at a time, all individuals. I'd name them, but that would only be slightly crazy.
Why I can't get the lighting/timing right is beyond me. It's a big image so, click and check 'em out.

FAT BAGGIES



A fat bundle of luscious. No seeds, stems or cheese! Stock your sewing basket with vintage, hand-dyed scraps from the Lawrenceville Frankenstein Dyeworx. For that matter, stock your friend's sewing baskets! These make great holiday gifts.


$25.00 includes postage inside the US

 
Now picking from bins and tubs full of shreds and scraps of hand dyed, cotton, broadcloth, linens - all natural fibers that have been through the Lawrenceville Frankenstein school of Color Transformation!

Note--- these fabrics are "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. 


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!!

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

florida cloth

Much of the fabric that I've been working with and selling came from my last visit to "Focus on Fiber" at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, New Smyrna Beach FL..March 2014.  I was needing a dark, neutral black and wasted a ton of dyestock finding it. I should have taken all those clear bright colors and thrown them into the dark stew, but I'm glad I didn't.

My mind was not on dyeing cloth and I felt quite the imposter while I was taking up space in the wet studio. It was production work, pure and simple, and I was in the dreamstate, working on reflexes.

The real creative work was happening ten and twelve hours at a time back at the cabin where I was spinning the first 15k words of the novel that I am revising now.
More about this shift another time.

Fat Baggies


Yes, I still have a lot of hand-dyed vintage cloth for sale, thanks for asking! They are still 25$, postage paid inside the US. The link will take you to a perfectly functional PP button. If you have any questions, please email me.


This morning I picked from this lot. I'm using Tyvek bags now instead of the old bubble padded kind. They hold more!

Cusspots, with tail. Stuffed with small bits and pieces of hand dyed cloth.

The batch above is gone, but I found the cone of cotton string and the correct size crochet hook and there's still lots of scraps . Let the fun begin
