Hand-dyeing my own fabrics and fibers is one of my favorite things to do. I never get tired of seeing the beautiful colors and patterns that emerge after the fabric has been washed and ironed.
Over the last 30 years, I would have to say that I’ve hand-dyed thousands of yards of fabrics and threads – both for myself – and for others. If you’re not a regular reader of my blog, or a customer, then you probably didn’t know it, but for the last five years or so I’ve had a very successful business selling my hand-dyed fabrics and fibers.
The reason you probably didn’t know about it is because I never had to advertise it. After the first few years, the business became self-sustaining and I had more work than I could handle. However I retired my hand-dyed business at the end of last year because I wanted to travel more and spend more time teaching and sewing. A sad/happy time – sad to say goodbye to the customers who loved my beautiful fabrics, but also happy to be moving on to new things.
With that said, I’m really excited to let you know that one of the new things I’ve moved on to is putting the finishing touches to a brand new online class – something I’ve never taught before called “Hand-Dye Your Own Fabrics and Fibers for Passion or Profit”.
Because I no longer earn income from the sale of my hand-dyed fabrics, in this two module online class I’m sharing it all with you!
The “Hand-Dye Your Own Fabrics and Fibers for Passion or Profit” online class is available in two modules
In module one I’ll be showing you the methods I use to create totally unique and unusual hand-dyed fabrics using a technique I developed called “Assemblage Hand-dyeing”. This part of the class is perfect if you want to learn how to dye your own creative and unique fabrics and fibers using Procion fiber reactive dyes. I’ve been hand-dyeing for almost 30 years. I know how it’s done.
Module two will continue on from there and I’ll be sharing how I built a sustainable and flexible business selling my hand-dyed fabrics. This module is perfect if you’ve ever thought about setting up a hand-dyed business that can be molded to suit your lifestyle. I’ve had an online business for over 10 years, and a hand-dyed business for over 5 years. I know how business works.
I’m still finalizing the details, but in the meantime you can sign up for the notification list and I’ll send you an email when additional details become available.
