Looks like you had a great time! I've invited a friend to come and learn some shibori dyeing techniques with me and I can't wait! It's been too long since I've dyed. I'm jealous of your Thread Shed. We're going to have to work in the kitchen for the wet part and be very careful...

I hadn't seen dying with wiffle balls before. Can you show a photo of what the wiffle ball dyed fabric looks like? Looks like a fun creative day!
