I think the kit is a good starter pack. The indigo dye is simple to use.
Thank you Alison and Shuji. I was very pleased to be doing your workshop. It was a great refresher for me. Your presentation was personal, informative and encouraging. I certainly will encourage others to be part of the experience. The kit was great and such a help having everything before you. I had a problem with Zoom from my end but it didn’t distract from the workshop. Looking forward to part 2 Thank you both
