Announcement   ***Shipping Notice: Custom orders (including Shades Packs) ordered in August will be shipped September 7. All other orders placed after August 22 will be shipped September 1.

Hand dyed fabric is my passion. I have developed over 500 custom color recipes using Procion MX dyes that I use to create custom dyed gradients, quilt backings,stash packs and fabric palettes for customers.

In my shop you will find some of my gradients, color palette fabric packs, quilt backs and other one of a kind fabrics. I can create any of the fabric palettes in custom yardage. If it’s not in my shop just converse with me through Etsy. I love special orders!

========== ABOUT MY HAND DYED FABRICS ==================
I use Fiber Reactive Procion MX Dyes with a low water immersion dyeing technique and vary the technique to get high and low textured fabrics. All of my fabrics are soaked once with Synthrapol in water at least 140 degrees, rinsed and Synthrapol-washed again in hot water and rinsed a final time in cold water. There are no fragrances used in any part on my process. The fabric is preshrunk and ready for you to use.

I have done color fastness testing of my general processes and find the dyes to be colorfast, however you should do a test yourself of this specific fabric to make sure it is colorfast for your washing process. I always machine wash my finished quilts with my fabrics but use a Color Catchers® or similar product as a precaution to catch any loose dyes.

==============================================================

SHIPPING POLICY
I use USPS Flat Rate for all shipping unless otherwise requested. I do not ship USPS of FedEx.

For US Residents: Shipping will be $6.45 for all orders (except large kits) no matter how large. I can usually get 7 - 8 yards of fabric in a flat rate envelope. Large kits are priced at the Medium Flat Rate box price and I absorb the cost for that.

For non-US Residents: Shipping for up to 8 yards is $23.95 to Canada and $32.95 everywhere else. Orders over 8 yards will be shipped in 2 separate flat rate envelopes (because it's less expensive) and you will be invoiced through Paypal for the additional postage. Etsy just doesn't have an easy way to process additional postage. You have the option of requesting FIRST CLASS for orders under 3 yards. You will be charged the Flat Rate amount but I will refund any excess shipping charges. Just indicate that you want first class shipping in the comments.

About

I want to share my passion for hand dyed fabric with you!

A challenge from a friend grew into this wonderful business. My best quilting friend took some fabric dyeing classes in 2000 and invited me to spend a week dyeing fabric in 2001. After the first day I was completely hooked. Since then I have developed my processes and recipes for over 500 colors. I love collaborating with my customers to develop new colors and designs. Many of my best product ideas came from customers.

I'm dedicated to making fabric for you that you can use confidently in all of your products and that's why I have spent many hours testing my processes to make my fabric colorfast. My process also works for commercial fabrics that bleed and on finished quilts. You can read all about it here:

Thank you for visiting me here at Etsy. My dye studio is open only one day a week so please allow 2 weeks for completion of custom orders (3 weeks for large orders). Most orders are complete in less than 10 days. If there is any problem with your order please let me know. My goal is to make you a satisfied customer. I specialize in custom orders so if there is anything you want please send me a message through Etsy.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I only accept payment through Paypal. You do not have to have a Paypal account to make a credit card payment through Paypal.

Virginia residents pay 5% sales tax
Shipping
If your item is not a custom item, it will ship within 2 business days via USPS Priority Mail.

For US Residents: Shipping will be USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate for all orders no matter how large. I can usually get 7 - 8 yards of fabric in a flat rate envelope and I used to charge the flat rate box price for orders over that. Going forward shipping will be the flat rate envelope price for all orders. That should make everything simpler!

For non-US Residents: Shipping for up to 8 yards is USPS Flat Rate (currently $16.95). Orders over 8 yards will be shipped in 2 separate flat rate envelopes (because it's less expensive) and you will be invoiced through Paypal for the additional postage. Etsy just doesn't have an easy way to process additional postage. If you want me to look for cheaper shipping just send me a convo and I can research options for you.

I cannot guarantee delivery to non-US addresses. I can only track a package until it leave the United States.
Refunds and Exchanges
Most items are custom ordered items made specifically for you but if you are unhappy with your item, please contact me and we will work together to come to a satisfactory resolution to your problem.
