Candy Glendening on QATV set

Welcome to Candied Fabrics Classes

Online Classes for People who love Color!

My name is Candy Glendening, and I’m addicted to color. I’ve been dyeing fabrics to use in my art for over 26 years now, my blog chronicles my work. I’ve developed a series of online classes to help people learn how to dye using Procion MX fiber reactive dyes.


Each class is self-paced, with no end date on your access to the information. I use a combination of written worksheets, templates, step-by-step directions with lots of pictures, and videos of steps that could be tricky. I make a .PDF of each session that you can download for saving on your computer (and printing if you so desire).


These classes are packed with details!

Each session has a Question and Answer forum associated with it – I will respond to any question you have within 24 hours, and both these questions and answers will be available for other registered students to view. The beauty of an online course is that if several people are having the same difficulty with a particular step, I will just create additional content to add to the session to clarify any confusion.


Sure! I’ve created a sample session, check it out!

The class is complete and self-paced, you progress through the lessons on your own schedule

By day, I teach biology to students at the University of Redlands who are non-science majors. I am very comfortable engaging my students and putting complex ideas into terms they understand. I’ve spent over 26 years learning how to dye fabric, and developed this way of dyeing to accommodate my busy schedule and not waste my limited resources.

I have 40 “how to” articles published in various Interweave publications (see list here), I have been a guest on 12 episodes of Quilting Arts TV, and I filmed 2 different Quilting Arts Workshops as well. Video clips from them can be found here; they are a great introduction to my teaching style.
