Why, dye fabric, of course!
Since early March I have embarked on the latest edition of dyeing solid fabrics in colors not offered by commercial fabric companies. The picture at left shows the samples I dyed of 69 colors. They were all supposed to be shades – pure hues with grey or black added – but somehow some colors that pop crept into the bunch! The dark colors don’t photograph well, but there’s a nice variety of blues, browns, reds, and greens included.
The way I work has changed over the years, not that I’m getting older or anything!! 😜 Now I’m dyeing as many yards as possible at one time, especially for solid fabrics. Besides saving my strength, it also decreases water use and fuel consumption, which is important to the planet. To do that, I need either a fairy godmother who wants 15 yards of every color I dye 🦄🦄🌈🌈 or a lot of people who need a yard or five. I do have a few customers who fall into the fairy godmother category, and they have my thanks – you know who you are!
Here’s how you can help and get some goodies. I will send you samples of all these colors and when you see what I will be dyeing, you can add your order to the total. Samples swatches can be yours if you send a self-addressed, 70 cents stamped envelope to:

Boy, my last post was about the vision board. It certainly is time to rework that. But my next post has to be how we’re increasing capacity at DippyDyes!
