Contemporary Art Quilter Pat Pauly's random thoughts and excursions made public.
HI Pat! Love, love your pieces! I saw a few up close and personal at the Schwienfurth. Would you mind telling me if you dyed these pieces recently and what about the heat needed by the hot sun? I want to dye some fabric, but it is way too cold here in the midwest. How do you solve this issue?
Chriss,Well, I have read that the dye does not take unless there is at least 70 degrees, but I am working in my basement and believe me, it is not 70. Why would anyone slop around dye pails to their car to get more heat? Now, you have me thinking I will put a thermometer downstairs and see...meanwhile, no problem that I have with below 70 degrees, and there is no sun down there either! Go and dye, for heavens sake!
