About Me
Karen Rognsvoog has been dyeing natural fibers and growing plants for dye since the mid 70s.  Always interested in the colors of nature, boiling plants, weeds, flowers and bark for use with fibers, made this inexpensive hobby a passion of hers.  After some hands-on experience, she began teaching natural plant dyeing classes in schools and community centers in the twin city area.  She now teaches at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais Minnesota,  The Clearing Folk School in Ellison Bay Wisconsin, community centers, and other groups interested in learning about natures color palette.
She is a professional pianist, amateur cellist and teaches private piano lessons to kids and adults. Some of her other hobbies include fishing, Japanese Ink Painting, gardening (has a dye garden) and ham radio.  She's always on the lookout for new and interesting dyestuffs, so don't follow her on the road too closely.  She notes.  "I brake for roadside weeds."
