The video was excellent and detailed. All instructions were easy to follow. I had great success with both the dye and the stitched napkins. It all worked out exactly as the video detailed.
Hi Julie, I have watched and enjoyed your entire video and the napkins, along with six scarves I bought directly from Maiwa, have been scoured in soda ash and Synthrapol. I am heading to Huntsville in two weeks for a dye day with my old guild.
I have templates cut out and will be busy stitching this week in preparation.
Thank you for your hard work preparing the video.
Julie did a fantastic job to help a beginner understand the complicated world of chemistry and all that goes in to making a successful dye. The various stitches and methods of folding fabric were well explained and the video was well documented so that you can easily return to find the method that you wish to re-watch. I have made over 20 napkins and made two pots of dye since watching this video and the finished product exceeded my expectation. Highly recommend this video!
I’ve taken a number of workshops with Julie and I’m now excited to Shibori stitch and indigo dye some napkins! So many techniques to try! Julie starts off with very simple ones and shows how simple stitching can transform the napkins. If you have bought an indigo kit from Julie before but haven’t had the courage to use it, this video is for you! Go for it!
