RainbowFingers Giveaway

5 comments

Hello all, hope you are keeping warm! As you all know I have been a busy bee here in my studio, sewing, dyeing and all kinds of busywork. I have finally completed my first group of Silk Velvet Square Packs and in celebration I am having a giveaway over on my RainbowFingers shop blog Head on over there if you are interested in winning a rainbow silk velvet square pack and be sure to check out all the new items there, including all my velvet square packs.


I am getting closer to finishing the big update to that shop. I finally got my business cards and new packaging for my items. I really like how they turned out. I still have a large backlog of ribbons to add to the shop and some silk gauze but once thats finished I can start concentrating on my sewing again. I have been working on lots of scarves and such but right now they are all buried under stacks of pretty hand dyes. It has been a bit of an elephant, these tasks I have been tackling these last few weeks, I am slowly conquering them though! When I am finished I will have things streamlined and easier to go forward.

I rearranged the studio because no matter how well you think it out at the beginning you find after you work there awhile that things would just work better a little differently. D also set up some different lights to make things brighter in here. The dye studio was just too dark. I also set up a photography corner. I can already tell even though things are still a mess that it is going to be easier to get my work done. We all know that the easier it is to get our work done means the more time there is for SEWING!

So I know I have been absent a lot these days but soon things should be a lot calmer (who am I kidding with Christmas heading our way) I have been promising myself time to stitch for quite awhile now and keep pushing it away, I am going to put my foot down soon and just insist. I love my dyes. They are beautiful and they inspire me but my first love is my sewing and no matter how much I love my dyes I will not allow them to push everything else out of my life! So keep your eye out and you will see some stitching content returning soon, really!

Dont forget to check out my giveaway!

  1. Yes, such material as labels and cards are so important for your business. I wish you a lot of success! Your dyeing is adorable, and if I could use velvet, I'd certainly go for it.
    You aren't planning to dye materials that can be quilted, by the way? Dupion and such?

  2. Actually Eva I am adding content as I go. Since I started out doing this on nothing it has taken time to build it, I reinvest everything I make into new material for the shop. I just bought a shipment of silk habotai to do some more dyeing with that and I have my eye on a few other types of silk to try. I also have been experimenting with cotton flannel and love the soft cloudy results. It helps to know what people are interested in. I have always loved dupionni myself!

  4. Oh my goodness Eva, that about made my heart stop. I know I need to raise my prices. Some things work out to $2 an hour! and then when you do the currency exchange...eek! It is a hard thing to do though.
