So the stuff I dyed last night did not turn out very dark. Maybe my dyes are old or the sodium carbonate in the dishwasher powder was weak. Whatever the reason, I got pale results. They will be nice for something I am sure.

I'll get to the supermarket or pool supply for some proper soda ash to find out.

Hi Jim. Glad to see you are blogging!! I look forward to seeing pictures of your beautiful dyed fabrics.

Too bad about the dying but you need those light fabrics too.

I echo Holly's thoughts about those lights.
Sodium carbonate - I wonder if it has a "shelf life" like baking soda. Kinda makes you wonder.

I'm glad to see you're blogging as well. I just watched your first Simply Quilts Episode this morning (dying silk) - it was so much fun.
