Tie Dye Judy gets a new studio

I got to visit my blogger friend Judy Sall's new studio in Flagstaff this month, which of course is worth a blog post. Anytime a fiber artist gets a new studio it's worth a post! She's also known as Tie Dye Judy, and her blog is at The blog links you to her Artfire store where she sells her fun items.

She knocked out a wall to combine two rooms into one, which gives her a beautiful light-filled spacious studio to do her dying, stitching and playing. One window looks out on the snow-dusted San Francisco Mountains and the other window is filled with a lush evergreen tree.

The day I visited she had colorful strips of fabric waiting to be made into coiled fabric bowls and vessels.

 This gathered garment awaited the dye bath.

I was blown away by the beading on her prickly pear art quilt. This is a detail.

 Here we are in front of another one of her art quilts. Cheers to friends met through blogging!

Have a colorful day

Thanks for the wonderful post, Sherrie! I really enjoyed being able to have you come see the new and improved studio! Next year, we really need to make time for a real play-date in the studio, getting messy with dyes and paints!
