About

I made thousands of tie dyes when I was in my 20's.I first made and sold shirts, so I could follow the Grateful Dead. After years of that, me and 2 friends had a tie dye factory for a year. I have sold my tie dyes at festivals, concerts, and in local stores. Also sold wholesale to an exporter. Now, after 20 years of not tie dyeing, I want to teach my 7 year old how to tie dye, and sell tie dyes at festivals around Colorado.

 I have purchased  dye, and other tools. ( bottles, gloves, masks, rubber bands, soda ash, buckets, and plastic) I now need money to buy shirts and other things to dye!

Here is Cheryl making her first tie dye. I showed her how to do it one time, and the next morning she dyed a few shirts all on her own.

Risks and challenges

I risk ruining a shirt, every time I start adding dye to it. Some people say there is no such thing as a messed up tie dye, but I am very critical of my work. I have only been dyeing for a few weeks now, and I already have a pile of things I call rags now!!

I plan to use USPS for shipping.

My biggest challenge right now is space to let the shirts set for 24 hours. I am working on shelving. I can dye about 15 shirts a day right now. I want to be able to do more than that a day.
