Fermentation Dyeing

I forgot where I was at, I either have the flu or a bad case of food poisoning. All I know is I don't feel well at all and I'm supposed to be in Kansas City tonight, not good, not good at all.

I have a book I wrote on the methods of Fermentation Dyeing, it's available on my webstore. It's called Compost Dyeing and Other Fermentation Techniques. It's only available on CD ROM right now, but I may have found a printer in Minnesota so we can get it into book form. Anyway I discuss 14 different methods of fermenting and/or composting with natural items to get color onto your fabrics. If you'd like a copy of the book, on CD, check the link at http://www.prairiefibers.com

I fermented and/or composted all of the pieces in my series Prairie Remnant. I really need to get them photographed and placed onto my art web. The fabric for my three quilts Sandstone I-III were composted. I love the naturalness of the fabric, it's like working with bark or leaves. I made these peices in 2001 I do believe, and have had two solo shows with them. You can view the quilts at http://www.kbaxterpackwood.com Click on the quilts link and then either Sandstone or Prairie Remnant. I'd copy and past the link but I haven't figured out how to do that in Blogspot.com yet.

I need to get busy filling orders, I'll post more pics later, I have a feeling we won't be going to KC tonight, not with the way I"m feeling right now.
