I am 53, married 25 years and no kids (by choice). I live near Richmond, VA and am obsessed with anything to do with fabric and thread! I sew quilts, dye fabric, longarm quilting and just make lots of things. I started this blog as a way to chronicle my sewing goals and adventures and retired recently to become a full time fabric dyer. Recently I embarked on the new hobby of making fused glass. It's all chronicled here in the blog.
I sell my hand dyed fabrics in my Etsy shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/vickiwelsh). I'm knows for my gradients and my ability to match colors. If you are interested in custom hand dyed fabric you can contact me through the blog.
I publish a monthly newsletter (http://vickiwelsh.typepad.com/field_trips_in_fiber/newsletter.html) where you can get early information on specials and sales.
Check out the Free Projects (http://vickiwelsh.typepad.com/field_trips_in_fiber/tutorials-and-free-projects.html) page for lots of dyeing, quilting and other tutorials.
