Quilter to explain indigo dip dyeing


COM-Art Quilter Demo Quilt

Indiana Artisan Daren Redman will share her skill in hand-dyeing fabric during an Indigo Dip Demonstration from 1 to 4 p.m. Nov. 25 at Always In Stitches, 1808 E. Conner St. During the demonstration, Redman will create geometric and organic patterns in cotton fabric by using two Japanese dye and resist techniques, Itajime and Arashi Shibori.

“Art quilting can be an intense and emotional process,” said Redman, who designs, hand dyes, paints and pole wraps her own fabrics that she then quilts with minimal stitching. “The quilt lines calm the boisterous piecing, and do not distract from the colors in the cotton.”

The free demonstration is being held in conjunction with Redman’s Fiber Artist of the Month display at Always In Stitches, which is on display now through Nov. 25. Shop hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. For more information, call 776-4227.
