A Passion for Dyeing Giveaway

This giveaway has ended…click here to see who won!

Did you know that March was National Craft Month? The folks at Interweave alerted me to the fact, and they have put together a bevy of free e-books to inspire people to get started in one of the many types of crafts they have published about over the years. Seriously, there are literally hundreds of these, check them out!

I thought I’d join in the fun and have a giveaway here to celebrate the art of creating with your hands, and to encourage people to give fabric dyeing a try! I’d like to give away a copy of my DVD, Dyeing to Stitch: A Comprehensive Guide to Creating Colorful Fabric Art, filmed and produced by the wonderful folks of Interweave. Part of the fun of creating is sharing it with a friend, so I’d love to encourage you to try dyeing with a friend after watching my DVD. For further inspiration, I’ll include a piece of my hand-dyed fabric, so you can experience for yourself the glorious color and lovely complexity you can get when you dye your own fabric!

There are 2 ways to enter the giveaway!

  1. Leave a comment on this post telling me who you’d like to spend some time dyeing fabric with!
  2. Sign up for one (or many!) of my newsletters using my handy dandy form in the sidebar and leave a comment in this post telling me that you did (or if you’re already subscribed, let me know that by leaving a second comment instead!)

When does this giveaway close?

Since this is National Craft MONTH, I’ll keep it open until March 31st! Make sure when you comment to sign in with an email address you check, and I’ll notify you if you’re the winner! :-)

    Just joined your newsletter. We run a Farmers’ market and do several “expos” during the year in our town/village. Finding new “things” to share with those who visit as well as “senior” crafters is always a delight and a great way to spend an afternoon.
    thank you

    I have wanted to try dyeing fabric for some time. My friends and I get together and dye yarn. A few of us also quilt and want to try fabric dyeing together.

    I am a self taught dyer and always have much to learn. I am grateful to have been introduced to your website and newsletters and look forward to learning from you. There are lots of people I’d like to dye with but I think I’ll start with the friends I met at a quilt workshop who asked me to show them how to dye!! (AND, I really would love to win your DVD!)

    Candy, I am so glad I clicked on your link from a email that I received, from Quilting Daily! Your talent and your choice of bold and beautiful colors speak to my inner soul. I just recently decided that I should give up finding a bed size quilt (that I can afford) that would make me feel inspired and joyful every time I look at it. I thought, some how I will find a way to make my own bold and bright colorful quilt myself. And today I found my inspiration! Your talent!!!!!! Even though I have never made a quilt let alone dyed my own fabric, you have inspired me to start learning! I have subscribe to your news letter and would love to get your DVD to get me going in the right direction. I would also love to share the creation process with my mother. I love getting chances to make memories of time spent with my mom that will stay with me a life time. Thanks so much for creating this giveaway to share!

    I signed up for the newsletter. I have never dyed anything (except whatever they made you do in grade school), but am at a place in my life where I’m trying all the things I never had time for, before. I’ve always been envolved in needlework, crafting, and sewing, now I’m branching out. Thanks for the ideas I know I’ll get with your newsletters.

    I would like to spend some time dyeing with my husband. Since he is an engineer, he approaches things from a different perspective than me, and his results are so inspiring to me. We occasionally take quilting classes together, so I see dyeing together as a natural complement to quilting together.
