Welcome!

I’m so glad you made it here. This site never could have happened without the incredible help of Tara Gentile, a.k.a. Scoutie Girl.

And fitting in being a full time Mom of the seriously cute Lola too! Seriously folks, she ROCKS!

If you’ve got a few minutes, please feel free to poke around and take a look. I’m sure there are piles of sawdust in the corners, and some empty spaces to fill, but there’s lots to see!

How long do you have? Until pie baking day (November 25), the day before Thanksgiving. That way I can have the drawing on Thanksgiving (November 26), because I am truly thankful for the connections I make through this box that shines my face with light. Honestly, I truly appreciate all the feedback and support I get from this little community. Thank you ALL!

I’ll post about and try to contact the winners on Thanksgiving, and if I don’t hear from a winner by Cyber Monday (the Monday after Thanksgiving), I’ll pick another!

  1. Hi,
    I just love your new site.
    The Aurora combination on the scarves appeals to me! The colours you put together are so crisp and refreshing.
    I follow your blog from Down Under.

  2. Wow, what a wonderful new site. I had no idea that you had so many scarf colors palettes to choose from but I do have to say that the Crocus scarf stands out. Thanks for all your sharing. Marsha

  3. Candy the colors are yummy and you’ve made selecting one almost impossible. I’m a fabric girl through and my favorite giveaway is the cotton fabrics that start fusia like colors on top…. or is it the bluesy scarf… or better yet a t-shirt! Great job in pulling this together.

  4. All the scarves are beauties, but if I had to choose, I’d take the multicolored one shown on the far left! And now I am going to add you to my blogger reader!

  5. Love your scarves! My favorite palette is Summer, though I also like Ocean Surf from Spring and Kelp and Black Orchid from Winter…you make it hard just to make one choice!

  6. Congratulations on your new website! It’s perfect. Easy to find items and to navigate. And, I love the Crocus palette! As you already know, I think your scarves are just gorgeous!

  7. I love the sunset scarf (but it was really hard to choose). They are so beautiful. I blogged about your giveaway on my Dye Candy site. I was planning to blog about your fresh picked product line and this was the perfect chance. Your website looks great. Congratulations! Chris

  8. While they are all beautiful, if I had to pick one, I would go with Tiger Lily.
    I became a facebook fan and subscribed to the newsletter.
    Your website is really nice and I love your work!

  9. I like the Earth & Sky….. or maybe Wild Rice. They are all beautiful. Say “Hi” to Logan. He told me to find the new site. I really like it.

  10. what pretty colors! my favorite is the bottom one, the orange, red, yellow. i LOVE color. i’m doing a scrap giveaway on my blog if you have time to pop over and check it out.

  11. Wow, its great. I love your new baby. I’ve already mentioned it on my blog! Fav colours…its SO hard to choose, reds, pinks, blues, purples, kelp, but not brown!

  12. Incredible site! I’m signing up many ways. Another way to win would be to favorite you as a seller on Etsy. I’ve done that.
    My favorite color palette is the sunset in Colors of Summer. I love brights – reds, yellows, etc.

  13. So many great color combos! Since I’m picking one that I’d look good in, I’d go with wisteria, but there are so many others that I really love for other people to wear!

    Sue

  14. I really like the middle and last mannequin at the top of the page, the pretty light blue and pink one, and the red and silver!

  15. Candy, I love the pearl gray/red/charcoal scarf! Your new website is lovely…found you through Fibermania. Best of luck to you.

  19. So hard to pick just one!!! My absolute favorite would be Aurora – with Sunset, Madrigals, Black Orchid and Wild Rice in a tie for second. Also, those are all color schemes I would consider for 9 girls to be wearing next to me in May 2011 🙂 I also signed up for your newsletter! I love following your creativity! 🙂

  20. So many choices, I love the earth and sky colourway.
    I have subscribed to your blog and signed up for the newsletter.

    I’m a fan on FB.
    I’ve subscribed in google reader…

  23. How can I pick just one colorway!! I was able to narrow my lust to three choices. Crocus, Sunset and Earth, Wind and Fire.
    Your colors are so perfect for mixing and matching with lots of my work clothing and wearing with jeans would be great also. Good Luck with your new site. Judy

  24. Hi, mom!I decided to enter your giveaway so I could win a cape!BUT,does it have to be orange?I was just wondering if it could be green.

  25. I’m an old lady and I shall wear purple…so the blue/purple scarf are great colors. Definitely my favorite.

  26. What great fun to look at your blog , my favourite scarf is definite the one on the left. Love from Holland, Simone.

  27. Yay Candy, I can finally post here, lol! Let’s see – my favorite pallet of yours is Ocean Surf, hand’s down. And I do follow you in my Google Reader. Congratulations on getting your website up and running, I hope your business takes off like gangbusters!

  28. OH MAH GAWD!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had heard about people that dyed fabric but since I’m not too familiar with this craft or art, I just shrugged and thought, “Oh well. It’s probably just like batik.”

    *jaw dropping awe*

    I’m absolutely STUNNED!!! Seriously, your art like TOTALLY ROCKS!!!

    I think I love the cape, pictured here with the yellow gradually becoming orange? Or perhaps the goldish one?… or maybe the blues and greens.

    *scratching her head*

    Hmmmm… Okay, I’ve decided!

    I love them ALL!!!

    LOL

    Please put my name in your hat?

    P.S. Almost tempted to write, “Please DON’T pick me! I’d never be able to decide what colours I’d want!” LOL

  30. Beautiful!!! These are AMAZING. I just stumbled onto your site and I am in awe. How can anyone pick one color combo? If I did, I guess it woudle be a Breathe of Spring. Again, amazing.
    Brandie

  31. Well Candy, you know I CAN’T just pick ONE “favorite”. . . that’s why I own so many of your scarves, capes, bags, etc. LOL 😉 Your new websites are fantastic! Congrats! I love the YouTube of you doing your free motion machine quilting. Is that how you did the gorgeous intricate designs on the quilt wall hangings in your office? BEAUTIFUL! And I’m also WISHING YOU A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! 😉

  32. I’m surprising myself because normally I would go for something more colorful, but the Madrigals color palette is really gorgeous! Congrats on getting started and thanks for the chance at your giveaway!

  33. Your new website looks fresh and lovely! I find it nearly impossible to choose a favorite color palette as they are all gorgeous! Kelp is probably the one I would wear the most though.

  34. I have two of your beautiful charmeuse scarves already. If I should be so lucky to be picked in the giveaway, I would like the Ocean Surf. I had planned to order this one anyway before I heard about the giveaway. Now I’ll see if the gods are smiling on me !!

  35. Hi, Just love your work! Thanks for sharing it all. I love the madrigals colorway the best. Good Luck to You!

  36. Hi…your fabric is GORGEOUS! Love the scarfs and capes…especially in Wild Rose and Breath of Spring. I signed up for your newsletter and became a fan of yours on Facebook. On now headed over to my blog to put you on my blog list! Thanks for doing such a great give-s-way…someone is going to be very fortunate! Hugs, Elaine in SLO, CA

  37. And then I went through more of your fabulous website and feel head-over-heels for “The Colors of Fall”, especially Tiger Lily and Earth & Sky and “The Colors of Winter”, Madrigals and Black Orchid….in fact they are ALL WONDERFUL! Beautifully fabrics, hard to choose just one! Thanks again for sharing…Elaine in San Luis Obispo, Ca

  38. Congratulations Candy. As the brand new owner of a brand new website I know how HUGE this is!
    I love the ‘kelp’ colorway, but then there’s ….. and …….
    I definitely need a second cup of coffee!

  39. Beautiful web site ! Congratulations ! My first visit here….via simplyrobin….
    your work is smashing ! I love all the blues & purples & silvery greys….
    Fran in Ketchum, Idaho

  40. Love your colour combinations in the scarves. My favourite colour scheme would have to be madrigals closely followed by Aurora. It’s my first visit here – followed the link from the simply robin blog.
    Claire in Ireland.

  41. I have a brown sweater than would be complemented beautifully by a silk scarf in the Earth & Sky palette!

    Now that your website has propagated downunder, I’ve added your new blog feed to my RSS reader and I’ll be doing a blog post shortly.

    Congratulations on your bright and attractive new site.

  42. I can’t believe you have so many fantastic colours. My favourite scarf pallette is kelp.
    Thanks,
    Sarah

  43. thanks for the contests! your work and website is beautiful! i especially like the photographs of your work–it’s superb!!! i like the Ocean palette best. thanks!

  44. Hard call, like several of them quite a lot–but if I have to pick a favorite, Ocean Surf barely beats out Wisteria and Lunar Eclipse. 🙂

  45. Candy, your new site is beautiful. And your work is wonderful. I love so many of the scarves – kelp, earth and sky, and tiger lily. So hard to choose. But I’d give tiger lily the edge. I also became a fan on Facebook. Happy new site!!!!

  46. Hi Candy,
    Delicious colors! A tour of both your website and blog was deliightful. I like your Aurora palette.
    Judi

  47. So many beautiful palettes to choose from, it’s hard to choose just one. Earth & Sky is my choice.

    I’ve also subscribed to your blog feed.

  48. Congratulations Candy! The website is as impressive as your artistry. My favorite palette is Breath of Spring. It reminds me of a meadow in bloom.
    Good luck!
    Kelly

  49. All this exercise just for one scarf! Ladies you won’t even get anything if there aren’t 100 entries, you will do all the advertising and will get nothing. But yeah this is a very clever campaign that does not cost any money to the owner. 🙂

  50. Congratulations! Your winter colour palette would have to be my favourite, difficult to choose just one though. Wishing you the best of success!

  51. Wow, your fabrics are amazing! I found you via Kathy at Pink Chalk Studio, and I’m so glad I did. My favorite colorway is the Summer Wisteria, but truly, they are all stunning. Congratulations!

  52. You’re now in my blog reader, and I’m happy to know you’re in So Cal, too. Maybe one day I’ll catch you at a show and get to see your lovely stuff in person.

  53. My favorite is kelp, followed closely by several other color schemes! I have added you to my google reader list and will subscribe to the newsletter, too. Thanks — great stuff!

  54. I love the simple but powerful colours in Burnt Fire. I am usually drawn to earthy tones but the red/grey combination is very strong! I have added your blog to my bookmarks (and I found you through Pink Chalk Studio). Congratulations!

  55. You have such lovely color combos. It was very hard to choose between them but I pick the Earth & Sky.I love the color mix.
    Thanks for the giveaway:)

  56. So excited to see you taking off like this! Trent’s teacher was telling me that she is starting to see your goodies everywhere.

  57. I’ve just discovered you through (also recently discovered) Pink Chalk Studio – what lovely colors! My favorite colorway is Kelp, but I tell you, it’s difficult to choose.

  58. I love the crocus palette. Beautiful yellow. I like alot of them though! Congrats on a beautiful website design. I found out about you through Pink Chalk studios. Fabulous giveaway! Thanks for the chance.

  59. Dear Candy
    I have arrived at your blog via Pink Chalk blog. Congratulations a really lovely site and your art is wonderful. I really appreciate your great dying, but really the 3D houses are delicious and so unusual. Clever girl and I have a sneaky favorite No 7.
