Good News!

I am delighted to be able to tell you that the publishers have agreed to reprint “Wild Colour” and revised editions will be published in both the UK and the US in September/October 2010.

I shall be making changes to the text of some sections of the book but its appearance will be basically the same.

I would like to thank most sincerely everyone who supported my efforts to secure this reprint and most particularly Mary Walker, who organised the Facebook page and kept the US publishers informed of the degree of interest in the book. Without Mary’s efforts, together with her encouragement and the support of so many people, I am sure this reprint would not be happening, so I am truly grateful to you all. Many, many thanks.

    Not before time! Brilliant news, Jenny. I hope it is as popular as it deserves to be. (I’ll be first in the queue then I can return the copy I have on long-term loan from the library!).

    Hi there,
    I just got a copy of this book from the library (in Boulder, Colorado, US). I really love the book. I’ve tried a bit of natural dyeing before, in a workshop, and am looking forward to trying it at home soon. …Elm bark?? Really?? We have too many Siberian elms in our neighborhood and plenty of bark…I think I must try this. I’m only interested in working with linen for now, though. Hope it works on that.

    • Jenny Dean says:

      Many thanks for all your kind & encouraging comments.
      Elm bark should work on linen & will probably give subtle, if not very deep, shades.

  13. Jala Pfaff says:

    Hi Jenny, (again),
    We must be online simultaneously right now. 🙂
    I think you have 3 different books out, is that right? Could you tell me which one or ones would be best for me to own, if my primary (or even only) interest will be dyeing linen at home in small amounts? Thank you very much!

    Woohoo!!! I cannot wait! As soon as it is available, I’ll make sure my LYS orders some. I have a Dye Day event in October and I would love to be able to show people the book they need to buy.

    Thank your publishers from the bottom of our hearts!!!
