Learn Shibori with Indigo from me!

Let’s have a great time, and do some Shibori together for a few hours!!!
Join me in this fun, hands-on class, where you’ll learn the basics of this beautiful method of dyeing!!

Shibori is a Japanese technique of binding, stitching, and clamping fabric to create pattern when dye is applied. Loosely, you could call it “Japanese Tie-dye”.

No experience is necessary!!   Come ready to learn and get your hands dirty!  At the end of class, you’ll take home this new skill and your dyed fabrics that could be used as tea towels, place mats or made into beautiful pillows for your home.

Please help me raise money for Activate Good!

Friends… This is my THIRD time taking part in Activate Good’s Couture for a Cause.  Each year chosen designers design a couture look and a ready-to-wear look to walk the runway, which highlights the nonprofits that Activate Good works with, and each group’s contribution to our community.

This year, I am designing two fun, elegant kimonos to bring light and awareness to the LGBT Center of Raleigh. Those two looks will be premiered the night ofNovember 7th, at the Raleigh Convention Center.  Tickets are available HERE.

In lieu of the auction during the fashion show, each of the designers need to raise $200 each.  
This will ensure that we all meet our fundraising goal, but also, this is a contest!! The designer who raises the most money gets a really great prize.  I would really love to bring in the most funds on behalf of my non-profit, and having the added honor of winning this prize would be super spectacular!

Please help me raise the funds by donating anything (even a little bit) you can!! Here is the link to that:

Thank you all!!!
