Shari (my business partner who retired several years ago) and I had a Cross Stitch shop and saw hand-dyed fabric here and there. We loved the way it looked, but couldn’t find a reliable source. So - strong-willed, stubborn people that we are - we went to our local University (Kansas State -Rah!) and cornered 4 Professors in the Textile Department. They pointed us in a couple of directions (they might have just been trying to get rid of us) and there we went!! The rest, as they say, is history...
