Monique Sidy
01:05:07
Thanks so much y’all!

Where can one get the drying racks?
Kate Ellis
01:05:13
Thank you for the weld seeds (back from the workshop in Florida) The plants that came up are thriving, and I just harvested a 5 gal bucket full of dried paint materials. :-) Looking forward to dye some fabric soon.Is it bad to dry weld in the sun?
Elizabeth KI7AUH
01:05:14
Chalk. What form from where?
Mickey Mariash
01:05:16
The garden series is SO gorgeous!!
Isabella Scheier
01:05:18
can you tell us a little more about your weaving process?
Teresa Ruch
01:05:23
what kind of grinder are you using?
marilyn waite
01:05:23
wonderful presentation!
Darryla Green
01:05:25
Do you use Passion flowers to dye?
laura womack
01:05:39
Will you write a book about gardening for dyers, please?
Laurie Matthews
01:05:40
Like you I’m frequently traveling so I’ve also loved being home and seeing my garden in all its phases. Thank you!
Lesley Darling
01:05:41
Catharine, I use your recommend tannin mordant method from the book. I noticed that Jenny Dean seems to wait longer before “reloading” her tannin vats — is there a reason to add tannin immediately to refresh, or just wait until the tannin bath doesn’t leave a pale tone?
Aleksandra Azbel
01:05:42
Is all chalk made equal? Ie: Is calcium carbonate from sea shells the same as blackboard chalk? AND at which point in the dye process do you add the chalk?
Stephanie Stimmler
01:05:43
What is the best way to colorfast natural dyes?
Michael Rohde
01:05:43
Your indigo vats seem to be alkaline; what about wool and silk?
Debra A Jircik
01:05:44
Did you do your recent indigo test samples on multiple fibers?
Teri Power
01:05:53
I would love to try to make paper from the discarded weld stalks….have you any experience dying natural fibers for papermaking?
Anna Volkmann
01:05:58
What a privilege to be able to hear from you - thank you so very much.
janetbarbieri
01:06:04
Thank you Catherine—SO interesting. Any ‘best’ yellow plant dyes lightfast for hands-on cotton thread?
Lori Goodman
01:06:04
do you use the whole flower or pick off the petals - i.e.marigolds, etc.
Leslie Wade
01:06:06
What’s the best cotton fabric to use and do you have a source? I’ve use PFD in the past. Or is an organic cotton better?
Ting
01:06:43
There is suggestion about leaving dyed fabric in the dye bath overnight for deeper colour. Will that cause un-evenness being un-touched for hours?
Samantha Verrone
01:06:52
Incredible presentation - my mind is blown! Can sodium bicarb (plain old baking soda)be subbed for chalk?
Celeste Malvar-Stewart
01:06:52
Have you noticed a significant difference between using fresh flowers and flowers that have been picked fresh then immediately frozen?
Maegan Neubeck
01:07:01
Trying an indigo vat for the 1st time with madder root, it has been simmering since yesterday afternoon, still looks milky when stirred. is this normal? I am using stony creek pigment and lime, it also has the good copper/brown color.
Deb McClintock
01:07:04
the dried weld stock make good pins for weaving
Elizabeth KI7AUH
01:08:15
Do you lime your madder bed? I have read madder grown in limey soil is red-er.
Lori Goodman
01:08:21
I am dying kozo in the pulp with natural dyes. would love to discuss with other papermakers
marilyn waite
01:08:53
thank you Kathy and Catherine it was a privilege to attend!
Anne Scheidegger
01:08:56
i only have access to alum (potassium aluminum sulfate) here in switzerland, not aluminum acetate. so i have to use a tannin first, right? what tannin would you recommend if i want to gather it myself (or use food waste)… pomegranate?
Lala de Dios
01:09:46
Catharine it is a privilege to learn from you in this company!!. We will never thank you enough! Thanks to Kathy for organizing!
Sunny
01:10:02
I’ve only been working in natural dyes for about the last year, but I am an herbalist and I’ve been growing medicinals for many years. It has been fascinating to see how the majority of the dye plants are also medicinal plants. So interesting that the baical skullcap was used for dye as well. You are such a wealth of information - so inspiring. Thank you.
Deb McClintock
01:10:33
typo, the dried weld stalks are hollow and make good weaving pirns or bobbins
Polly Furr
01:11:12
So clear and knowledgeable! Thank you Catherine, and thank you Kathy and Amy for organizing and hosting!

Sal A
01:13:34
