Give the Gift of Color – One of my Hand Dyed Silk Scarves!

It’s the holiday season, and I love to give handmade gifts: either ones I make myself or buy from a fellow artist – in fact I spent last Friday dyeing gifts for all my nieces and nephews! I also shared some of my favorite folks I like to buy presents from in this post. And of course, my hand dyed scarves make excellent gifts!

Anyway, it’s Giveaway Day over at Sew Mama Sew! (Actually, it’s all week long, with all sorts of bloggers having a giveaway on the same week!) I’d love to help you give a hand dyed silk scarf to someone (or…save it for yourself! You could wrap it up and put it under the tree and say it’s from “Candy Claus!)

If you’re new here – welcome! If you’re a big fan of color and fabric, you may want to subscribe to my blog or sign up for my newsletter, there’s a form right there on the right! —>

How can you enter?

Just take a peek at my scarf color palettes (I’ve got so many that I divide them into season: Spring for light, pastel colors, Summer for colors that are bold and bright, Fall focuses on the earthier tones and Winter I focus on shades and black combined with other hues) and then leave me a comment on this post telling me which one is your favorite…or, is there a certain color combination that you’d like to see that isn’t there? I’m always looking for new color ideas, let me know! (Comment moderation is on, so don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up right away, I’ve got to approve it first!) I will ship internationally.

When does it end?

Sew Mama Sew has put together a huge list of blogs hosting giveaways this week, if you’ve got some time, head on over and enter some more! They all end this Sunday, December 11, at 5 pm Pacific, so you’ve got a few days to tour around and enter a bunch!

I’ll email the winner next Monday and I’ll send the winner’s choice of a habotai scarf out a week from today so it can be placed under the tree for Christmas! (Or around your neck for a holiday celebration!)

  1. I really like wisteria in the summer collection. Moonlit moth is very beautiful too. Would be tough to choose between them.

  2. I like ALL of your color combinations, but if I have to choose, I’d say my favorite is the Summer Aurora scarf. Love the colors!

  3. All of the colors of the seasons are beautiful, however I am particularly drawn to Moonlit Moth, not sure why it particularly stands out for me amongst all of the others especially since I typically go for bright colors. Your color combinations are spectacular.

  4. I was surprised to find that the winter palette is my favorite. I expected it to be summer, since I love bold colors. But I think scarves with a little bit of black shimmer woven into them are just gorgeous.

  5. They are all so very gorgeous. I love the Earth & Wind, Earth, Wind & Sky, Wisteria, Aurora….I don’t think there is one that I didn’t love! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win!

  6. I love your silk scarves and would be over the moon if I won one. I love the wisteria color from the summer palette and the ocean surf from the spring palette.

  7. I love all of the colour ways! Right now (because it is winter) I am really liking the winter palette!
    Thanks for this opportunity!
    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  8. Wow… such exquisite color combinations. Tiger Lily in the Fall collection blows my socks off! It’s gorgeous.

  9. I love the Earth and sky in the Fall collection. Turquoise is one of my favorite colors. Thanks for the giveaway.

  10. All of your scarves are so beautiful! But I would have to say that Moonlit Moth is my favorite. One combo I don’t see is purple and green!

  11. I love your blue scarf and would love to see a combination of something along the lines of purple and grey.

    Thank you for the chance to win!

  12. Wisteria is surely my favorite with that intense blue. So many gorgeous color combinations. Beautiful work!

  13. Oh my what beautiful scarfs you make. Summer Gerber has my name all over it. I think I heard it call to me. 🙂 It makes me real happy.

  14. So hard to pick a favorite color. These scarves are gorgeous. I love Fall colors the best. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

  15. I like Madrigold and Ocean. I really like the Winter version and the blue-teal colors but would like the lighter tones of the madrigold with the gray but instead of pink, use a teal color with gray (instead of black)

  16. I love all of them, but Madrigals really speaks to me at the moment. Thanks for such a wonderful generosity.

  17. They are all so beautiful….but Fall is the season I enjoy the most. The air is crisp but sometimes warm…the colors bright especially when sunny. Love the Fall!

  18. I love the Crocus scarf with the beautiful bright colors that are all my favorites. Thanks for chance at the giveaway.

  19. You come up with such amazing color combos, but I would have to pick Wisteria. Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. I would love to see a combination of Spring’s Ocean Surf with the brown from Fall’s Earth & Sky. I love blue, green and brown together. All of these are simply gorgeous! Thanks for the opportunity to win one!

  21. I really like your winter color scarves. My hair is quite white now so a lot of color looks good on me. They are all beautiful. I am waiting for the Holidays to be over before I try dying some myself.

  22. I’ve lived on the Gulf of Mexico over 50 years so I favor the seaside colors in your Spring “Ocean Surf”. Those are my colors! Thanks for the opportunity to win one of these fabulous scarfs. It’s very generous of you. Merry Christmas and a colorful New Year to all!

  23. Lunar Eclipse is stunning. I am drawn to all of the colors in the winter collections.

  24. Everything you make is so pretty! I think my favorite of the scarves is Spring, I just love everything about spring including the colors of the scarf. Thanks for the opportunity to win one.
    I wish I was close enough to attend your upcoming Holiday Open Studio. Maybe someday. 🙂

  25. Impossible to choose a favorite as they are all so beautiful! But moonlit moth is a top pick from your winter collection.

  26. I live in the foothills, Sonora, CA, USA. It is cold and has been raining here. I would like to win your Lunar Eclipse silk scarf. Just looking at it makes me feel special and I know that it is going to be the envy of some people. Thank you for being a part of the SMS Giveaway and giving me this chance to try and win. Wishing you Happy Holidays.

  33. They are all yummy but now that I’ve let my hair go gray, the winter ones are my favorite. They would truly bring out the silver in my hair.
