It's Black Friday! Time to start your Holiday shopping and I have the best gift for your fiber friends! Of course you have to buy a gift for yourself so you probably need 2 of these.
My dyeing friend, Candy Glendening, partnering with Interweave Press, has produced a wonderful DVD for anyone wanting to get into fabric dyeing.
If you haven't seen Candy's beautiful fiber art, you have really been missing out. Look at that beautiful color! This DVD walks you through her process for greating beautiful hand dyed fabrics.
She covers her mottled solids and wonderful textured fabrics. The DVD even includes her recipes for this palette.
It doesn't stop there. She also demonstrates how she makes her signature art pieces. After you watch this DVD you will be able to stitch and dye just like Candy!
Candy, like me, takes a scientific approach to her dyeing and she will teach you her process for getting predictable color results. It's not boring science either. Her enthusiasm and great attitude draw you in from the first scene.
Now for the exciting part. You might not even have to buy this gift for yourself! Candy and Interweave have given me a copy to give to one of my readers.
Leave a comment on this post by November 30. I will draw a winner on December 1. In your comment tell me why you like hand dyed fabric.
