Candy Glendening from Candied Fabrics joined us on the blog several times this year. She did an Organic Prepared for Dyeing (PFD) Fabric Test for us on our 100% Organic Cotton Solids from Robert Kaufman, and she shared a comprehensive Beginning Fabric Dyeing tutorial too. If you’re inspired by Candy’s beautiful fabric art or if you want to learn more about fabric dyeing, you’re in luck!
Candy has a new video out with Interweave. Dyeing to Stitch: A Comprehensive Guide to Creating Colorful Fabric Art is 70 minutes long (broken into chapters), and Candy’s wonderful personality and talent shine through the whole video. Candy teaches you about everything from color theory and the whole dyeing process to how she creates her “free-motion machine sketched” motifs. She shares tips, tricks and secret recipes for her Jewel Tone fabric palette.
Here’s a 5-minute preview to give you an idea of what you can find in the video:
