In October, during the Taos Wool Festival, I watched a new film called BLUE ALCHEMY; it's now available on DVD, and it explores indigo dyeing in four countries, where it's reviving local economies. There's a free trailer online: http://vimeo.com/24131498
Searching online for the DVD, I found an online exhibition about indigo, from the International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Nebraska. Now, it's 35 degrees today in Nebraska, but you can view the online exhibit while cozy in your pajamas if you want to!
Here's the link for the exhibit: Quilt Study Museum
And for Blue Alchemy: New Deal Films
