A Short Look at My Other Business: Tie Dyed T-Shirts

I've been know as many things in my day. I think, overall, drummer/rock musician has been the one thing I've been known for the longest. These days most people know me as a woodworker.

But I also tie dye T-Shirts, and I'm taking a little time to write about that here.

My business is called 2112 Tie Dyes, and you can find my work for sale at Etsy. The name may be a bit mysterious to some of you, and others will know exactly what it means. But I'll clear up any questions you may have right here: My favorite band is Rush. Rush's fourth album is called 2112. And all of my shirts are named after Rush songs. That's it in a nutshell.

So, here are a few of my shirts...

This is called Far Cry. It is an adult, long sleeved, extra large T-Shirt. It's a 100% cotton heavy weight shirt. This is perfect for spring and fall in the northern states, or winter in the south. Maybe not the winter we just had, but still...

Subdivisions is a 100% cotton child's T-Shirt. it's a small, with very short sleeves. Some little girl is going to be the hit of her school in this.

Here is Madrigal II... because I sold Madrigal in 2009. My son is modeling this shirt. He is 5'9" tall and weighs less than 150 lbs., and this is a lose fit without being baggy. This is a 50/50 cotton/poly blend, and the size is adult large.


Here is War Paint, another long sleeved shirt. This one is stretchy. The label says it's an extra large, but it fits like a large. It's pretty warm, too, and it would look great under a denim or leather jacket.

And finally we have Working Them Angels. This is an adult medium, 100% heavy weight cotton shirt. It sells for $26.00.

There are many other shirts from which to choose in my shop. Please stop in and see which ones you want to wear or give to a loved one.
