Dyeing to Stitch: A Comprehensive Guide to Creating Colorful Fabric Art with Candy Glendening

In this comprehensive DVD, fiber artist Candy Glendening shares all! From her dyeing techniques and explorations into color theory, to her approach to quilting and “free-motion machine sketched” motifs, Candy takes viewers step-by-step through her creative process. Learn how Candy uses low-water immersion dyeing with fiber-reactive dyes to create single-hued and multihued cotton fabrics for use in her art. Candy’s recipes for 6 luscious jewel-tone hues are included on the DVD. You’ll learn how Candy’s training as a research scientist allows her to dye a very specific color and consistently match that color each time she dyes. She also demonstrates how she uses free-motion machine sketching as a design element in her work. Each step of the process is accompanied by specific examples that feature Candy’s unique, colorful aesthetic.
