Maggie Casey in the "Plants to Dye for" - class

As a part of and for the enrichment of the Botanical illustration class "Plants to Dye for" Maggie Casey from Shuttles, Spindles and Skeins (Boulder, CO) came into the classroom and talked to the 14 students and the instructor Susan Rubin about dyeing and how to dye. She also visualized her talk with yarn samples dyed with natural colors.
Everybody truly enjoyed her presentation.
