Dyeing for embroidery

This has been a fun adventure – I’m working up colors for an embroidery project that Rissa is going to embroider! These are the silks; they are five-meter tubes of 300-denier flat reeled silk, hand-reeled from cocoons.

Me, in a podcast!

I got interviewed for a Fiber Cast episode – http://fiberarts.typepad.com/fibercast/ We talk for about twenty minutes about silk, silkworms, sericulture… I’m excited; I think it turned out well.
