Wow, I have to check in here more. A dyeing forum, is that new? It must be...

Anyhow, consider me interested. I vote for one monthly theme that's broad, like: space dyeing, or color mixing, or different fibers (alpaca, merino, yarns, nylons), or clothing.

Kewl!

I like the one a month theme, however instead of specifying techniques or fibres I'd like themes that invite creative expression; kind of like "spring"; "gardens"; "opulence" etc if that makes any sense Roll Eyes

yup, that wasy my original intent. that way we dont limit the amount of dyers who can participate: not everyone wants to dye alpaca or silk.

agreed! i just bought like 20 lbs of wool fiber so I don't think I will be buying any other fiber for a LONG time... I love themes that can really mean a different thing to each crafter. color themes are nice but its also super cool to see all the different ways that people can interpret something like 'spring' or 'inspired by your favorite fine artist'...

i am so excited to get this up and going!

oh and vanillaxlight- i totally understand with school and all. i have been really busy lately too!

This sounds fun! I would prefer monthly themes, as I don't get around to dying that often and think it would be complicated to always check which topic is on.

Thanks for organising this!

I wanted to second eatmoreplants (who I always read as eatmorePANTS) (and others) thoughts on the theme types.
