If you answered yes to any of those questions, my ice dyeing class is just what you need!
So what will you learn?
Here is what students are saying about this class.
"This class is well worth the price of admission... in fact it's a steal! Anyone who wants to be able to create gorgeous fabrics like this should take Lynda's class... I've been dyeing for a long time, but could never get good results ice dyeing until I signed up for it! "
- Judy "Tie Dye" Sall
"Wow, Lynda, I’m sure glad I found you! As a long time sewer and applique quilter, the hardest part of any design was finding the right fabric…. but not any more. Your Icy Delights class took the quality of my projects to a new level that I never anticipated! I even sold one of my purses for $160!!!"
"Your easy, down-to-earth teaching approach made this whole ice dyeing concept go from “How in the world can I do this” to “Easy-peasy!” And thank you for your ongoing and continued help and support, always available to answer my slew of questions, no matter how silly. Any other classes you may offer, count me in! I’ll be the first one to register!"

Lynda, thank you for offering a most exceptional online class! Icy Delights encouraged me to explore ice dyeing in an organized, repeatable manor. I had only sprinkled dry dye over snow, resulting in so-so results and a few happy accidents. This class, with its easy to understand, step-by-step study of how colors split under with each of three techniques was just fascinating and resulted in intricate, rich pieces. Then, by combining dye colors, I was able to achieve some really beautiful pieces. Your examples and clear instructions made this easy and fun!
The fabric folding and manipulation demos were very helpful. I feel Ike a fiber artist for the first time and I've been quilting for 40 years! I also love being part of the Icy Delights Facebook group...the learning and sharing go on!! Thank you again for your dedication! I would certainly recommend this class to increase or add to dying confidence and enjoyment!

"Caution: if you love to play with colors, you will have so much fun with this hobby that you will want This Color and That Color, and "Wow! Look at that color split!" and "Oooh! another pretty color I haven't tried!" Lynda's class will tell you everything you need to know to get started, and the Facebook group is a great place to share and learn."

Here is your instructor.
My passion for ice dyeing started in October of 2010 when I was interviewing a fabric artist for my newspaper column. I was so excited about her passion, snow dyeing, that the following January after a big snow storm I bought three fiber reactive dyes, gathered some snow, and dyed my first ever piece of fabric. I fell in love! But then the snow was gone. I wanted so much to continue snow dyeing, and since I knew that snow was made of ice crystals, I thought that ice cubes would also work. And ice dyeing was born.
I wrote the first article on ice dyeing, which appeared in Quilting Arts August/September 2011 issue, and taught a webinar in June 2013 on that topic. I have continued ice dyeing, working on resolving problems I've been asked via my website.
In addition to playing with ice and dye. I also love working with other ways to change the look of the fabric’s surface including, but not limited to, sun printing, soy wax batik, discharge, gelatin printing, thermofax screen-printing with dye attractant and inks, and marbling. I also love using all kinds of tools for marking the fabric from potato mashers and wood printing blocks to doilies and lace.
