This is one of the best books I've come across, that really teaches you how to dye your own fabrics. I picked up dyeing as a hobby, and was really drawn towards tie and dye work. But I did not necessarily have the information about equipment, color mixes, what kind of colors exist and which fabric if best suited for what kind of color. I learnt all of that and much more in this book. I LOVE the color wheel and the different projects/ideas that the authors have shared. I know what I am doing all summer now!

I’ve always considered myself pretty inept at sewing and a little nervous about dyeing my own fabric, but Price’s instructions are very clear and she made it easy to follow even for a beginner. Dyeing actually turned out to be really fun and easy, almost like a little science experiment you can do at home! It really brings out the creativity and Price makes it fun to play with color. I would definitely recommend this book for newbies to dyeing and sewing, as project possibilities are endless.

I like how the author teaches. I wish she would write a book about how to fix my car, because I think she make that seem easy as well. She has a great style. “Once you get the hang of dyeing, you can create whatever colour you want and even a good many that you didn’t want – at first . . . ” A book like this is always better with some light humor. How to Dye Your Own Fabric by Margo Price is very well done, thorough and teaches you just what it says. It’s all you need. Five stars.

How to Dye Your Own Fabric is a solid well written guide that covers everything you need to understand about dying your fabric. The author takes her personal experience and backs it up with credible links to ensure the reader is getting all the correct information. She adds personality which makes the guide that much better in my opinion.I think you should grab this book and let the author know what you think. Good Stuff!

Who are 'they' and why do they love it?They are my wife, her women's group and another lady that runs a foundation that teaches under-educated women how to become self-sufficient. We live in Thailand where there are many women, mostly single mothers, without a viable means to support themselves. One of the foundations here has been quite successful for several years in helping women though teaching them sewing and how to run a cottage industry.When I showed my wife Margo's book on how to dye, she became very - yes very - excited. After a bit of recruiting friends for a girls craft event that was a huge success, the next step seemed natural. Take what they learned to the foundation.This book is so well organized, well written, and complete it was the only resource they used to add a complete section to their training at the foundation.

I'm new to dyeing and I didn't dye anything yet. I was unsure on how to begin because I didn't have a clear picture in my mind about the process. This book turned out to be extremely helpful guide. It contains very simple and clear steps with useful pictures of the ingredients and the process.I recommend this guide to anybody who is looking for comprehensive dyeing instructions.

I think this book is simply great. I have read all the books by Margo and quite amazed by the efforts she put for each of her book. You will find almost every thing you want to know about the dying your fabric. It even explains the color theory so that you know well, what you get. Great read and explain each and every step about dying process. Congratulations to the author for such a great book.

I've actually been looking for this book for a long time, I buy a lot of fabric, my wife makes cushions, clothing, all sorts and a lot of the time these great creations could always do with a bit of sprucing, and this book goes a long way to help spruce & improve a lot of stuff. Why would you want to dye stuff? It is one of those questions that you don't know until you actually do, once you've changed curtains, sofa cushions, clothes, once you've seen the difference/improvements it really makes a lot of sense. Margo's book is an absolute vital, detailed, and integral guide on how to dye things correctly. We've followed some of the chapters word-for-word, and have truly seen great results, huge thanks Margo, loving your work, thank you.
