Weaving Linen and Dyeing with Knotweed

it has been a busy summer ! Thanks to all who visited and purchased from us ! We appreciate your support . Recently I can across a group studying the forgotten art of growing and working with flax and linen. There was a workshop I wish I could have attended in Historic Deerfield village in Massachusetts.
Here is their link New England Flax and New England Flax and Linen

Also this summer I have been fortunate to be dying from knotweed making a soft grey brown color that looks fabulous woven into a shawl ! The subtle colors enhance your features and go with a natural look !

Customers suggestions have been wonderful as they said to put it on a table or on the window too as a window dressing
