Dyeing

Perfect summer jewellery! Get it Quick!

Don’t worry there will still be an amazing selection of Maria’s jewellery available, but not at this price. Maria’s star is rising and so are her prices. So, the prices in my shop will remain only until the end of the month! Along with a new lower shipping cost!

Pick one pair for yourself and another for a gift! Christmas is coming…

At 1:00 sit down and relax for 45 minutes while I do my trunk show in the Wilmot Town Hall. I will be showing and talking about my love of indigo and snow dyeing using shibori techniques. I will be bringing some of my quilts and fabrics to illustrate the techniques I use to create one-of-a-kind scarves and fabric. Then step across the Town Hall Green to see the items available for sale in the vendor located just steps away in the Event Pavilion area.
Come and see us, our indigo and hand dyed shibori cotton fabrics, kits, variegated perle and embroidery cotton threads. I am also bringing snow dyed fabric and scarves. A cornucopia of colour, texture, and designs will be available!

My favorite hand dyed scarves

So many factors of the dyeing process contribute to making each scarf unique: fibre content, dye colours, amount of snow used, amount of dye used and folding techniques.

Every time I hand dye, I am surprised and happy with the results.

Even so, there is always one from each small batch that captures my heart!

Fuchsia snow dyed shibori scarf accessorizing handmade!

Hiding under this pile of coloured snow is the accessory that puts the final touch on a handmade outfit by Anne Johnson of @anne.makes.things.

Fuchsia fibre reactive dye with a sprinkle of brown transforms the lightweight lambs wool shawl into a colourful piece of art to wear.

Anne chose this beautifully patterned snow dyed shibori shawl to compliment her handmade outfit. The tailored skirt and hand knit sweater were created by Anne.

Fuchsia Arashi Shibor scarf and quilt top

Nothing makes me happier than beautiful colours! My favourite is fuchsia like the linen rayon scarf I dyed with snow. I love this colour as evidenced by the amount of it in my fabric stash. The quilt I am working on includes shades of this bright pink hand dyed fabric paired with gray. Always a great combination.
