About RubyMountainDyeWorks

On Etsy since 2009

I lie awake at night thinking about color.

Ever since I began making quilts fifteen or sixteen years ago, I have been utterly enchanted by hand dyed fabrics. My earliest dabblings with dyes came about thirteen years ago while I was planning a landscape quilt for my husband. That quilt never did get made, but no matter; I had discovered what I wanted to be when I grew up--a dye artist!

    I began learning my craft in the shadow of the magnificent Ruby Mountains of eastern Nevada. It seemed only fitting that I name my business after them.

I hand dye quite a few base fabrics. Here are some descriptions to help you select the best choice for you.

FELTED WOOL : Only the very best! I felt and dye premium quality virgin wool fabric, which weighs 11 oz per square yard before felting and about 15 oz per square yard after felting. This felt is perfect for no-ravel applique' and for rug hooking. You can cut this as small as a #3 strip.) I also felt and dye a large variety of textured wool fabrics, all appropriate for applique' and rug hooking.

COMBED COTTON: My most frequently used cotton quilting fabric, known to some as Dyer's Cloth. 80 x 80 threads/inch, 3.5 oz. This is very nice stuff--a substantial weight, fine weave, smooth surface, pleasing hand. It dyes up with brilliant colors and amazing, dramatic visual texture, needles easily, and takes a nice, sharp crease.

KONA COTTON (Kaufman Fabrics): Quilters love this fabric! 60 x 60 threads/inch, 4.4 oz. Heavier than P&B, with a very even, open weave, which makes it very easy to hand needle, gives it a sumptuous drape and a silky surface texture. Dyes up with glorious color and a softer mottling.

COTTON VELVETEEN: Soft as velvet and strong as denim. Wonderful for stuffed animals, home decorating, clothing, quilt backing and more.

HEMP, BAMBOO, RAYON and ORGANICS available upon request.

Additional policies and FAQs
CARE & WASHING:

Cotton: I take special precautions to ensure that your fabric is colorfast, by washing multiple times in very hot water and Synthrapol and treating the fabrics with a professional dye fixative. Please be advised that some household laundry detergents have a high pH, which can re-activate the dye molecules and cause them to bleed in the wash. I recommend washing our fabrics in your water with your detergent before using in your projects, just to be sure. When washing your finished item for the first time, you may wish to use a color absorbing sheet.

Wool: Our hand dyed wool felt has been washed and dried and is ready to use in your projects. Prewashing is not necessary, however, if you choose to prewash your wool, please wash gently by hand in cool water, squeeze the excess water out, and lay flat to dry. You may want to “block” your wool while damp. You may also use a warm iron to flatten and square it up. Your finished project can be gently laundered by hand in cool water and air dried.

SPECIAL ORDERS: Our listings here at Etsy are not all-inclusive. If you want something special, by all means, DON'T BE SHY! We want to hear from you. You can mix and match, pick and choose, create your own color combinations, request different quantities, different base fabrics, different surface textures....whatever you like, we can make it happen. Minimum size order on custom listings is an eighth yard per color.
Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest toimprove my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the United States
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services outside the United States. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the US, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the United States, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the United States and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
