I pulled two 2/16 natural linen pieces woven in Swedish and Bronson Lace for my next finishing project. These two pieces were samples left over from one of The Guild of Canadian Weavers Intermediate test questions. They are lovely pieces that just don’t have any wow factor; the colour is just a tad uninspiring.
I drove to Kelowna today and picked up the Dye-na-Flow Exciter Pack for under $20.00 (sorry about the flash glare). It contains 9 concentrated vibrant colours of “paint that acts like dye” for use on all fabrics according to the package. Apparently I can just paint it on, leave it for 24 hours then fix it by ironing. When I find something like this I’ve just gotta give it a go! Wish me luck!
Bosom is the main part of a woven piece as opposed to the selvedges or borders.
