Default Re: dye your own FOE?

I'm talking to a manufacturer about having some produced for about $.15 per yard...the hard part is the minimum order is 20 , 144 yard spools.

I'll post here along w/ the other thread once I get samples and decide if I'm going to go ahead w the order.

I'm thinking what I would do is order the white in bulk, and cut them to size for adjustable headbands (and heat seal them), then dye 20 or so at a time... (I use a pickle jar and Rit) then as I need them I would just dye more...

It would only probably take 1/4 package of Rit (or less) as long as I stocked some dye, it would give me really good control of my inventory... Tons of White, and just a handful of other colors, I would never have to worry about running out as long as I kept my white in stock.

I'm also trying to see where the best place to buy RIT at cheaper prices is...

All of my tutorials are now available through my etsy store.
