Take the fear out of dying. If you are doing small projects perhaps a couple of yards at one time and are new to dying this kit is for you.You should buy a good set of gloves that are at least up to mid arm. If you follow the directions in Ann Johnston's book (and you should get the kit with the book if you have never done this before) you are on your way. I was so comfortable after the first yard that I started mixing colors dying the fabric twice for different effects etc.One tip if you have one of the new low water front load washers two caps of the detergent is just right. I rinsed my fabric in hot water until just about clear water remained then did the wash with the detergent. No problems!My first fabric was the mercerized combed cotton broadcloth. WOW!

I don't like that the no single bag is zip seal as a matter of convenience but I do like that nearly everything was bagged or double bagged. A nice touch.The dyes work quite well & the recipe found here was pretty easy to follow. The dyes did their job fast but man the rinsing takes forever. I forgot about that over the years-whew! I totally like that everything is in one kit. A great size for testing.

Wonderful kit! My only negative comment is that Ms. Johnson's book is not really easy to follow. I ended up going to the library and checking out some other books to use instead. I would recommend buying the kit without the book.

I love this kit! I started with this kit and the book a little over a year ago. I have been making all of my own fabrics incorporating batik and selling bags quilts and fat quarters. I'm back putting a workshop kit together. The price can't be beat. I love Dharma!

Great to get started with... my only issue here is that the person who wrote the book doesn't use much turquoise (she prefers a different blue) and turquoise is the blue sent with the set.
