Hands On Hand Dyes is a line of DIY (Dye It Yourself!) Kits developed by fiber artist and color specialist Cindy Lohbeck of Scottsdale, AZ. Cindy has worked as a professional faux finisher and muralist, and also owned a tie-dyed clothing business in the early years, all of which helped refine her color mixing skills. With the addition of quilting to her creative repertoire in 2002, all of her passions collided and Hands On Hand Dyes was born.
Committed to quality, convenience and simplicity, her hand-dye kits teach color mixing, dye techniques, and valuable lessons in fast, fun, and affordable methods. There is even a non-toxic textile detergent to ensure that each treasured hand dyed fabric is brilliant and color fast. Each kit starts with her own brand of high quality prepared for dye fabric. This 100% Cotton, mercerized “PFD” dyers cloth has become a favorite, and ensures each student will achieve remarkable results. It is also crafted in the USA!
