Welcome to my little corner of the internet where I blog and sell hand dyed fabrics. I blog 6 days a week mostly about quilting, dyeing, crochet, postcard making and whatever creative whim grabs me that day. Occasionally you might see posts about fused glass, soap making, mosaic and other pursuits that I pick up along the way.
In the shop you will find new color categories to help you find just what you need. On the blog page you can subscribe to the blog through the RSS feed or FeedIt email. If you have any problems or questions you can send me a message on the contact page.
I've put my Bleeding Quilt button right on the home page so it can be found easily since it's probably the most important thing I've done in the quilting and dyeing world.
About Vicki Welsh
Retiring from the business world in 2010 opened many great new opportunities for me. Thanks to the encouragement of my blog readers I embarked on my new fabric dyeing business.
Here on the site you will find my fabric shop, loads of free tutorials and my daily blog.
Peer pressure got me into fabric dyeing and years of collecting glass got me interested in learning to make it. You might occasionally see some posts realted to making fused glass. That's why this site is called "Colorways". With all of my pursuits the one common thread is my love of color, the effect of one color on another and the effect of light on color.
On almost any day you can find me in one of the corners of my home in Montpelier, VA creating a mess with something.
The Hand Dyed Fabric Shop
A challenge from a friend grew into this wonderful business. My best quilting friend took some fabric dyeing classes in 2000 and invited me to spend a week dyeing fabric in 2001. After the first day I was completely hooked. Since then I have developed my processes and recipes for over 500 colors. I love collaborating with my customers to develop new colors and designs. Many of my best product ideas came from customers.
I'm dedicated to making fabric for you that you can use confidently in all of your products and that's why I have spent many hours testing my processes to make my fabric colorfast. My process also works for commercial fabrics that bleed and on finished quilts. You can read all about it on my Save My Bleeding Quilt Page.
