About the Author
Anna Joyce regularly teaches sold-out dyeing workshops in person and online. She sells her work on Etsy and through upscale online shops and boutiques around the country. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
“Thanks to Joyce, crafting with dye doesn’t have to be messy or impossible to conquer. Joyce caters to beginners, with most designs scaled at a difficulty level of one or two (out of four) and incorporates lots of valuable notes and color photographs. Just be careful: an occasional hobby might turn into an all-consuming passion.”

“Nothing adds movement, delicious irregularity, and personality to textiles the way hand-dyeing can, and Joyce’s new tome will have you moved to the dyeing bucket in minutes. With gorgeous photography, a clear vision, and a delicate sensibility, this book will not only be inspiring to DIYers and crafters but also to designers, stylists, and anyone who loves color and pattern.”
