Antique Colors for Primitive Rugs is full of wonderful dye formulas and is written in the easy-to-understand and folksy style of the late Emma Lou Lais and Barbara Carroll.
There are 116 formulas using Cushings Acid Dyes with many variations and suggestions for uses, thruough instructions and lots of room for your own notes.
This is the book I used when I first began dyeing.... I've added many variations and additions to my personal copy which is now well-thumbed & wearing a few extra spots of color!
A perfect book for the new dyer and a must-have for your library.
Our wool kits* for our appliqué designs are created especially for each design and are carefully prepared with ample wool to complete your project. The wools in the kit will generally not be the same wools used to stitch the original and are intended to give a look similar to, but not the same as, the original. Keep in mind that the photograph accompanying the pattern is meant as a guide only; your piece will be uniquely your own.
* Please note: Unless noted otherwise in the product description, our kits do not include threads, non-wool fabrics called for in the design, buttons, or other non-wool items.
