sack cloth magic
I'm please and proud to find that Jude will be building a magic cloth starting with a piece of vintage cotton sacking that I dyed last summer.
This piece was part of this batch of cloth, gifted me by my friend Rosemary just about a year ago. I left this image large so you can zoom in an see the various textures.
Some of the pieces in this batch had a stencil reading "Made For A.D.Pierce, Brooklyn, Conn." A little research told me that this company was a hatchery of some sort last mentioned or annotated in the 1930s.
I love a cloth with history, no matter how prosaic.
There will be just a few more pieces of this cloth posted to the Random Acts of Dyeness page. Hoarding most of it for myself.
