About

Fiber Artist Starts Own Business

I have always loved to do crafts, especially fiber arts. As a child, I learned to knit from watching my mom make scarves. I taught myself how to crochet and designed hand made sweaters and clothes for my teddy bears. As a college student, I somehow managed to sew ski pants in my tiny dorm room while also studying for chemistry and calculus exams.

When I became a mom, I decided to quit my job as a scientist to home school our two sons. I started my tie-dye business to generate some income while still being able to be at home. A good friend first taught me how to tie dye. I love working with colors and fabrics, so I really enjoyed it. I started selling my creations at festivals, art shows, and local craft fairs with good success and have grown and expanded and done very well over the past 10 years. My husband and two sons have gotten up way too early many weekend mornings to go along to help me for the day at all of these events.

I expanded my market to sell on-line by opening my Etsy shop in March 2011. Now I enjoy sending my creations all over the world to many happy customers! My family is happy that it doesn't involve getting up in the wee hours of the morning!

Each tie-dye is a hand-dyed unique work of art. Although specific designs can be reproduced fairly consistently, the nature of tie-dyeing creates variations that make each one unique.

I use a standard photo for each design offered for sale. The one you buy will be very similar, but have it's own unique subtleties that make it special.

I also do custom designs. Contact me and let me know what you would like. I usually need 1 - 2 weeks to complete a custom order, but could possibly finish it sooner if necessary.

FAQ

Are there any special washing instructions for my new tie-dye garments?

All of our cotton tie-dyes, can be machine washed with like colors. Do not wash with whites. NO BLEACH!!! It is recommended to be more careful the first time or two you wash your tie-dye as far as not washing it with any whites or light colors. Although we make every attempt to thoroughly wash out any excess dye in our processing, there is a chance that some excess unbonded dye may run off during early washings. At this point, however, the dye is no longer viable and will not permanently adhere to anything else. So if this happens, simply rewash any garments which may have inadvertently gotten dye on them from your new tie-dye. If rewashing fails to fix the problem, soaking in cold water overnight will remove any dye run off. There is no need or benefit to adding vinegar to “set the dye” when laundering cotton or rayon dyed garments.

How do I wash my rayon garments?

Rayon items can be hand washed or put in a mesh bag and washed on gentle cycle in the washing machine. Hang to dry. Can be steamed or ironed to remove wrinkles. In my experience all of the rayon garments that I sell can be dried in the dryer on very low heat even though that is not recommended on the washing instructions care tag of the garment. Just make sure the heat is very low.

If you have any questions about any of our items or policies please do not hesitate to contact us.
