Trish's love of stitching led them to hand dyeing their own range of threads. TrishAlan Designs also has an exclusive range of hand dyed fabrics. Their Eco Dyeing method was developed as an answer to severe water restrictions. They use much less water than traditional dyeing methods. They don't use string, rubber bands or stitching. When dyeing their 3 packs of Fat Quarters TrishAlan Designs only uses 3/4 cup of water in total. The fabric and threads are very colour and light fast. Perfect for embellishing your next project.
