Pillow Talk

Each week on The Welcome Mat I have a dyeing column called Dyeing Matters. If you enjoy my articles in RHM, Colours to Dye For,  you will love this column, I'm present and able to answer any questions you have.

Writing Dyeing Matters I use some visual aide to inspire colours to dye.
I took the summer off because dyeing in the summer heat is not my idea of a fun time.
I'm back at it now with a series I'm calling Pillow Talk.
Inspired by home decor accent pillows I'm coming up with some great colour sets to spark our rug hooking.
One nice thing about this inspiration, there aren't many formulas available for use that are fresh and in vogue.
It is fun to bring these new colours twists into our current colour array.
In the past I've concentrated on the colours of Emily Carr- a whole months worth, William Morris also a months worth, Norman Rockwell, a month of sky colours, and arrays of many other inspiring visuals.
It is fun to match up the colours I see to the Majic Carpet dyes.

This fall I'll be selling these formulas in collections with samples. Watch here for this announcement.
