The Blues

I'm still in the dye pot. My sink is blue, my gloves are blue, my drop cloths are blue, my finger tips are blue. And needle-poked. What's amazing is that blue has never been my color before now.

So many of you wrote to me that you loved reading about my trip to Bali.
That you hoped I would return there and teach a dyeing class. 
That we should all go back together and have a big Indigo Adventure.

So I invited my textile savvy colleague Sue Stover to join me along with the extraordinary tour planners Kathie Vezzani and Michel Fletcher to make this happen. 

If you've been on one of Kathie's tours you know this means we'll be staying in a lovely setting and eating the excellent food as well as experiencing the best that Ubud has to offer in the way of art and culture. And shopping. While I was in Bali in October Michel took me to all her favorite shopping stalls and introduced me to some awesome massage experiences; she is comfortable and easy with the locals and a world traveler who makes me feel safe, cared for and keeps me laughing.

We'll offer classes where you can experiment with various shibori techniques.

Attend a workshop where you'll get to experience batiking with javanese metal stamps.

Stay in a beautiful setting and have cultural excursions.

And use our indigo creations in a final project; among them making a book or stitching sashiko.

Our dates are September 12-19, 2015. 

We are excited and planning to make this a memory of a lifetime.

Contact Kathie Vezzani for more photographs and details.

We'd love to have you join us to share this amazing experience.

And I'll close this post with a photograph of our new winter blooming camellia which is covered with fragrant pink blossoms in this current cold weather. Spring will come.

Happy New Year! Loved the photos in your post. Love that you and Sue are teaching in Bali! Hate that I know I can't be there. I have a family wedding that exact same time. But I'm glad that you "un-retired" from teaching! Ther is still hope for me to take another class by Judy!
