Tie-Dying Demo This Week at Downtown Elgin Harvest Market

The Downtown Elgin Harvest Market - Presented by Alexian Brothers Health System continues this Thursday, July 21 from 10AM-4PM, at its new location at the Old Library Lot at 200 N. Grove Avenue (Kimball Street and N. Grove Avenue) next to The Centre of Elgin and across from the Gail Borden Public Library.

This week from Noon-2PM, Mad Discs and Dyes will conduct a tie-dying demonstration. Market patrons will have the opportunity to first learn this technique and then be able to dye their own white t-shirts (must be 100% cotton) for $5 each. This can be a great way to recycle and rejuvenate older shirts with stains or marks.

Dustin and Mike can also tie-dye shirts for you with white t-shirts available for purchase at $10 each.
