Dyeing to Stitch Blog Tour



Today I get to share a cool new video with you. My friend Candy is awesome at dyeing fabrics and along with Quilting Arts she has created this fabulous dvd Dyeing to Stitch.
You can learn all about Candy over on her blog Candied Fabrics.
In this great video Candy is sharing all of  her secrets. The video is 70 minutes long and is broken up into chapters, making it super simple to follow the concept.
I've loved getting to know Candy through her blog but actually seeing on video what and how she does it is pretty dang cool!
I also loved the chapter on color theory, color is something that is so fascinating to me so it was really cool to hear it coming from her. 
My very favorite part was when Candy shares her style of creating art. I love her style and dream of having one of her ipad covers
So... here is your opportunity to win your very own copy of Candies video Dyeing to Stitch.
Simply leave a comment telling me weather or not you've ever dyed fabric. I personally have not, but her video totally inspired me and now I really want to do it!
Winner will be announced 12/13/11
You can preview the video here.

  1. Once you have dyed your own fabric you won't go back. There's no substitute for the depth of color.

  3. Candie's DVD sounds great. I'm glad to see a DVD finally created for this topic.

    I have dyed a couple of times, but always in groups with experts helping. Love it, but would certainly like to learn to be able to feel comfortable to do on my own.

  7. I am so addicted to dying fabric. Once you start you'll never look at a batik again! It's amazing to come up with your own creations from fabric that you've dyed.

  18. I have not dyed fabric, but it sounds like a good idea, particularly since I just moved a few months ago and I am having trouble finding quilting cottons. I have dyed clothing and even shoes, so it sounds logical to move to fabric next.

  24. I have died fabric for batik with kids. We let them choose 2 colors. It was a lot of work getting the wax out! But dyeing is a lot of fun. I have not done it for myself since then. I want to try the actual dyeing for my own use! Thanks for the giveaway- K-

  29. My favorite dying method is snow dying. The dyed pieces of fabric have wonderful patterns from the ice crystal that form as the snow melts. It would be fun to learn how to stitch some of these beautiful pieces.

  43. I've dyed clothing long ago using Rit (Ritz?) dye yet never have dyed fabric. Candy's DVD seems to teach a lot about color and fabric, and as I am color challenged, think it would be helpful for my quilting. Thanks for the chance.
