Dear Welcome Mat member,
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it or who has said it not even if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
The other article I wanted to comment on was the microwave dyeing article. I am a 'chicken dyer'. When I saw the platter, and the glass measuring cup I had a 'duh' moment. I was so excited I picked up my iPad and logged on to watch the video. It was excellent. Thanks.
So, I heartily urge you to provide more videos. And thanks for the modern approach as well as the traditional methods of rug hooking.
For your edification there are many videos on dyeing in the microwave I just discovered this morning on youtube, go and discover.
Have a great day!
