About the Author

When Linda was seven years old, her mother sat her down at a treadle sewing machine and taught her how to sew. By the time she was in junior high school, she was making all her own clothes. She loves to stretch her creativity with every innovative fabric technique she can find, from dyeing, painting, and stamping, to making bowls and boxes. And as of this writing, she has created over 200 bowls! Linda teaches workshops on beginning, traditional, and contemporary quiltmaking; color and design; dyeing and stamping. Of course, her very popular classes on making fabric bowls and fabric boxes are always filled. Under the company name Johansen Dyeworks, Linda hand-dyes fabric, specializing in color gradations and variegated, one-of-a-kind pieces. This fabric, along with commissioned art quilts and fabric bowls and boxes, are sold through several shops around the Northwest. Although her two sons have grown up and left the nest, Linda still has the company of two border collie mix dogs. She and her husband live in Corvallis, Oregon.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Addition To A Fabric Dyer's Library!, May 24, 2010By M. E. Johansen "ZQuilts" (Washington State, USA) - See all my reviews(REAL NAME) (VINE VOICE) This review is from: Fabric Dyer's Dictionary: 900+ Colors, Specialty Techiniques, The Only Dyeing Book You'll Ever Need! (Paperback)This is a new book that arrived today from C&T Publishing. Despite the fact the the author, Linda Johansen, and I share a last name -I don't know her. Ratz! My favorite dyeing books have always been Anne Johnston's and Elin Noble's. I started dyeing cloth by using them and always refer back to them. This book, however, will definitely have a new place next to these others in my library. This is a book that I really, really like. It is written clearly, concisely and is exceptionally well illustrated. The book is laid out well. The basics are, of course, covered in the beginning of the book with detailed handling and mixing instructions. She also goes over the importance of record keeping - something that I was never very good at doing. I just always loved the kismet of the process - I liked never knowing what would happen. She compares the clear, muted and black colors offered by both ProChem and Dharma Trading. It's a handy little table. Each page details instructions for using fat quarters, half yards and yards of fabrics. This is a nice, handy way to present the needed information.he pages below are for creating a rainbow. She delineates the process for clear, muted and dark rainbow colors. Clear, concise and easy to understand. The end of the book is devote to some specialty techniques; tie dying, rolling, patterning, layering, using dye powders and pleating and dippingLinda Johansen has had 5 books, I think it is, published through C&T Publishing. I am so pleased to have this as an addition to my dyeing library. I think it's a book that will please anyone who has an interest in hand dyeing their own fabrics.
