Yes, I'm doing lots of dyeing!
I keep talking about all of the dyeing that I'm doing to get ready for the AQS Virginia Beach show. I thought I'd give you a brief tour today.
Now, keep in mind that my business is a little business and my inventory is basically stored in one closet and on one shelf in the office. I estimated that I needed double that amount of fabric for the show and consequently the whole house has turned into a warehouse! Chris is exceedingly patient about it.
I lucked out that when Mom moved and unpacked she had several large plastic bins that she no longer needed. I brought them all home with me. I'm filling this one with Black Shades Packs and single color Color Wheel Shades Packs. It will be stuffed once I get all of the 10 Color Wheel colors done.
There will be one more bin filled with the Color Wheel Shades and Stash Packs eventually.
This bin is getting filled with all of the other colors of Shades Packs.
This is one of those bins designed for wrapping paper but I'm filling it with Stash Packs. I'll have to find another bin for overflow.
The guest room closet is filling up with Gradients. A month ago I was nearly panicked about how much I needed to do to get ready. Now that my bins, closets, living room sofa and other surfaces are filling I'm feeling better about it. I'm a little more than half way to my inventory goals.
But, I think now you can see why in the evenings all I can do is sit and hand stitch a bit.

Vicki, you and Wanda are both workhorses, and I envy you both for the stamina you both possess. Hope this show introduces you to many new prospective customers who will love the beautiful fabrics you create.
