Silk Scarf Dyeing- a one-time special class offering
We’ve offered this class in the past and during our Fall Festival. Robbin Firth, from Heartfelt Silks is once again donating her time to teach the art of dyeing. You can make as many scarves as you desire, however we have a limit of 50 scarves for the day so we are going to have a sign-up sheet ahead of time. Call the shop and add your name and number of scarves you want to dye. These make great gifts! Children 8 and up may also participate!. Each silk scarf will cost only $12 which covers the cost of the silk scarf blanks and dye.
