- Excellent Overview Of Acid Dyes Review by Beachweaver
This is a very good overview of dying protein fibers with acid dyes. It's a survey course, so I am interested in getting to the next level on some topics, but overall a good overview of safety issues, equipment requirements, tub dying, painting, and a number of other techniques. Chock full of good concepts like making dye stock solutions, why metric is better for dying than pounds and ounces, using syringes instead of measuring spoon, and lots more. Everything a novice (like me) needs to have the confidence to start dying. Also provides a very good overview of the color wheel and (importantly) how it relates to dyeing, including depth of shade and the use of black and complementary colors. I've purchase countless books on dyeing and this video far exceeds them all.

- Lots of great information Review by Ellen
I really enjoyed this video. Deb presents information on several different dyeing techniques, along with very clear instructions on how to mix dyestock and how to calculate amount of dyestock needed for a specific amount of fiber. This video has helped build my confidence in dyeing, and has helped me gather the right tools for achieving the effects I want.

- Dyeing in the Kitchen Review by Annette Edler
On the one side, this video is really great; on the other I was disappointed. I was expecting more about dying with natural colors like onions, red beets, etc. This video shows nothing of the sort. But, if one wants to dye with powder and adding natural acids

- Deb's Dyeing Video - Awesome! Review by Iryna Boehland
Thank you Interweave and Deb Menz! I have her book and was longing to get to her workshops. Thanks goodness, this video gave me this opportunity! I love the video, quality, and the soft and quiet Deb's voice. I enjoyed learning about many ways of dyeing and many different results. I do dye sometimes, but never ever I thought that mixing the dye the tech way would be that easy! Good step-by-step instructions, easy way of calculating and mixing ingredients. I didn't quite catch the names of the ribbons (to tie the yarn with) in the Resist Dye part of the video. Overall - beautifully done video!

- Dyeing in the Kitchen Review by Daniel MacBride
LOVE this video, very informative and easy to follow step-by-step instructions for all the dyeing basics. I had previously put off attempting to dye fibre or yarn because of lack of good instruction - this video solved that problem and now I am confident that I will have no difficulty producing beautiful dyed and handpainted yarns and fibre :)
