    this has been around a long time..and yes you can snow dye in FLA....find a sno-cone stand and have them shave you a tub full of ice...any ice house can do that too...it works..my BFF in MS did it last year in JULY!!

    There are a ton of tutorials and instructions on the web for snow dyeing. Vicki Welsh had an article on it in Quilting Arts Magazine (Oct/Nov 2009). Her instructions are on her blog, here: http://vickiwelsh.typepad.com/field_...ow-dyeing.html

    Like most dyeing, it's messy. :roll:

    It has just been brought to my attention that the author of the article in QA magazine was not Vicki Welsh, but was, in fact, Judi Yakab, a dyer, quilt top maker and longarm quilter (she's also a member of this board). Some of her totally awesome snowdyed pieces can be seen on her blog. http://judiscrazyworld.blogspot.com/ I am truly sorry for the error, Judi. :oops:
