Let's Talk Turkey - Roaster!

From My Dye Pot: Autumn colors at your fingertips

By: Karen Poetzinger

As a fiber artist, I often give dye demos and teach classes away from my home studio. In my studio, I use an electric range with an oven for the majority of my dyeing. Unfortunately, it isn’t very portable. I have tried many different solutions, and I have found that the most versatile substitute is the electric turkey roaster. It is great for all types of dyeing and very affordable, at around $30. Roasters can be found at your local discount stores in abundance at this time of year, and if you can wait until after the first of the year, they are generally on sale. I picked one up for $19 on clearance. For the dyer who does not want to use their kitchen stove (and I recommend you do not) the roaster is a great alternative.
