I received a lovely gift in the mail today...
A pack of beautifully, hand-dyed indigo blues from my friend Candy, of Candied Fabrics.
The package contained 5 delicious fat quarters,
and one gorgeous scarf!
Indigo-dyed blues are my favorite of all fabrics, and I have a tendency to horde them instead of cut into them... but I am itching to get my scissors out and start!
Check out Candy's website where you can commission her to make fabric just for you, or where you can sign up for her on-line classes and learn how to dye your own fabric! The classes are all self-paced, with no end date to the availability to the information... so you can go back time and again to refresh and learn. I can tell you first hand that Candy is a whiz-bang of a teacher, (she's actually a biology teacher at the University of Redlands) and her on-line classes are extremely thorough, packed-to-the-gills with info and videos, as well as a question and answer forum. And her wonderful enthusiasm is ever present and a true delight. Truthfully, I think she's superwoman, because I don't know where she finds the time to do everything she does, and I am pretty much in awe of her!
