“They dyeing is a lot of fun,” Daphne continues, “but sometimes it gets to be a little too physical. When we do bigger fabrics in the dye pot, for example, the fabric gets so heavy with water, and then my body starts hurting, and I need a massage. But other than that it’s a lot of fun. We do so many different things — dyeing, weaving, crocheting, macrame, regular patternmaking — that our studio feels a little bit like a playground sometimes.” Pictured: Various scissors displayed on the sisters’ patternmaking table.
