    Glennis, please forgive me for writing here I have been trying to find your e-mail address, to no avail
    I ordered some fabric from you on August 9 and used paypal I have not received confirmation from you, I do have confirmation from paypal. I am sure that there must be a glitch somewhere. Please e-mail me mrboyles at yahoo dot com.

      no problem-
      i have emailed you privately regarding your order.

      a new batch of indigo fabric packs are shipping out monday for anyone who is waiting on one.

      like i told m’oa, there was a stack of them and suddenly there were none!

      last week was devoted to ribbon dyeing for orders so now it’s indigo’s turn. got caught a little behind-

      just FYI- anyone ordering thru paypal can see the email address on your paypal receipt. feel free to contact me there anytime you have a question on your order!

      now, back to the dyepot!

    I loved how the water turned almost clear after dying and yet you came out with a great black. Very interesting video. I hope everyone appreciates all the talent that goes into what you do, the mixing of colors, etc. I found/find it all fasinating. I look forward to more videos, you really bring the colors alive, not usually a fan of yellow, but you make it sing.Thanks for bringing this to us.

      yes, clear is the goal. it means the silk has taken up all the color and very few dye molecules left unattached to the fabric. more videos will be available in the bigcartel shop linked in the post.
      color really changes how i feel!

    Hi Glennis! I just found your wonderful videos on YouTube and then went to your website & blog. I’d like to sign up for your new monthly video series, but I can’t find a button for it. Thanks.

    What a great video. I guess you must do a lot of your dyeing outdoors because you live in a climate that would be conducive for this most of the time. What sorts of dyes do you use? The green is beautiful. I like the orange too. Really beautiful colors.

    Looking for my order this week too and am very excited to receive it. Thank you!
