My Hand-Dyed fabrics are produced in limited quantities giving you the ability to expand your stash and your fabric color selections for future and current projects. Actual widths of fabrics vary due to manufacturer fabric widths and shrinkage due to the dyeing and washing processes.
All my hand-dyed fabrics are created using Procion, natural fiber reactive dyes and are set with soda ash fixer. The fabrics are all then washed twice in hot water, using Synthrapol soap to remove any excess dyes, and dried in a hot dryer. The fabrics are then ironed and rotary cut into the requested size.
I suggest that before using our fabrics in your cherished project that you test the fabrics for color-fastness.
The selection of pre-printed manufactured fabrics is just continuing to expand featuring fabrics from various designers and manufacturers.
The basic fabric width is 44/45", but some may be 42/43", they are all 100% quality cotton fabrics, cut directly from the bolts to your specified length, and are the same quality fabric you would find in your local fabric store.
I have a love of deep rich colors in fabrics, but also love a great novelty print. I may also be offering some older and "recycled" fabrics, here and there, that were purchased in the hopes that you will be able to repair or finish that cherished quilt or project, or if you just love a great scrappy quilt and need just a couple of bits and pieces to give it that perfect look this would be a great place to look.
Unfortunately, in 2011 the price of cotton raw goods and shipping costs have increased dramatically, I have been forced to raise the cost per yard slightly, so to be able to continue adding fabrics for your pleasure. My goal has always been to keep prices as low as possible for those of us on a budget and yet be able to add to our selection. I thank you for your understanding and patronage of our website.
