Gudy's Dye Workshop - Hand Painted Yarns

Here we are, good students, lined up, ready to dye!

Lucy & mom, Kim tying up their yarns

& it's blue! Water is clear, so out it comes

Peggy Sue's purple awaits a boiling dye pot

New Rocker, Betsy Fitzpatrick from Durango stands with Saturday's production

I love that Ginger takes such good notes!

Think & Think getting groovy color

my FAVORITE of those I dyed

Can you believe how much yarn we are going to dye?

Can't help but dance a bit in this beauty

Gudy was very patient with us as she explained each yarn in our bundles

SALLYWARE! Mugs & Yarn Bowls


Our wonderfully talented friend, Sally Whitehead is making these fiber-appropriate coffee & tea mugs for the shop! Needle Rock is mentioned on their bottoms, so a nice souvenir, without being too much.
She's also making us yarn bowls - you've got to come in the shop to see the assortment! Where else can you get something made at Trout Lake?
