We’re doing a new thing! For those of you who watch our weekly Lunchtime Live on the Dyed4you Ministries facebook page (or subscribe to our Dyed4you Ministries blog and see it via email the next day), you know that I (Meghan) have become passionate about flutes. I first was exposed to them almost a decade ago by one of my Dyed4you Ministry Team members, and then this past summer was reconnected with them (and then gifted one) by someone in the Dyed4you Community. Now I’m officially a goner! Continue reading
Flags take on many shapes and forms, some are huge and some are small, but ultimately the action of lifting a flag (or standard / banner) has meaning. Below we’ve shared just a few of the things communicated through this type of expressive worship. Continue reading
As you know we’re always working to improve our products and create the best worship tools for you we’re able. We just made an update to our bendie rod design! We had been using different bendies depending on this type of flag we were creating, but we’ve settled on a single (fabulous if we do say so ourselves) design that will be in all bendie flags and wings going forward. If you have a problem with a silk using the old design, it’s not a big deal to get it transitioned over to the new design. Continue reading
Periodically we are asked what is the difference between a silk from Dyed4you and Dyed4you Ministries/Dyed4you Readymade? The short answer is “who makes your silk.” The longer answer is below. Continue reading
This post is a quote of an article by Arletia Mayfield (she has a book available on her site), which she posted on Owlcation. When I initially posted this blog, I was not familiar with this sister in Christ personally (nor this website), but the article had so much in it that pertains to the Dyed4you Community I wanted to share it because I believed you’ll be blessed by it (The original article (which she appears to update regularly) is available here). Continue reading
Quick comparison of three types of wings (spin, bendie, and swing) in our three sizes (regular, large, and XL). I try to hit pros/cons, storage, use tips, etc. and quick facts on each size are listed below. Continue reading
FYI we created a newer comparison video comparing Bendies/Swing Wings/Spinners.
With the introduction of two new flag options that have rods, we know some of you are likely scratching your heads wondering what the differences are between bendies, quills, and spinners. Let me start by saying I personal own and use ALL of these products. I go through seasons where I will prefer one type of tool over another, but they all are wonderful and each have their own feel. The question becomes which is right for YOU? 🙂 Continue reading
A few new things going on that we wanted to make sure you guys knew about. Since we’ve been offering our dowel products for a few months now, we’ve refined what we offer based on what you guys prefer, which in this case means your bendie flags and wings now come with the bendies sewn in and a silk storage sleeve that is dyed to match. 🙂 Continue reading
If you follow our blog, you know we love to feature other ministries who have similar giftings. We have talked about Anointed Artisans who God has called and anointed – in this case to create tools for worship. Today we want to share a couple new ones both of which happen to be out of Redding, CA (Bethel Church): Joya Flags and INovia Dance (BTW I love the fact that a pair of our Dyed4you wings is on their splash page – the ones on the left). Continue reading
As we’ve started using our new dowel line more, we realized we could make a small change to the dowel wing design that would make them easier to create, while maintaining the integrity of the piece. Instead of doing a combination of serging and hemming, we’re now serging the whole thing just like we’ve always done with our medium and large quill wings. 🙂 Continue reading
I know this one is long, but there’s a LOT of good stuff in here – silk stories, words shared by one of you in the Dyed4you Community as well as some fun Dyed4you history. So I hope you’ll be blessed by it!
First up is a topic I’ve shared on a number of times on the our blog and it’s one I feel passionate about. God has specifically anointed certain people to do certain things. I call them anointed artisans (think of artisan as being an expert not simply an artist because you could be an “artisan” of computer code if that’s what Papa has gifted you to do). We see this concept clearly illustrated in Exodus 31:1-6 (AMP) Continue reading
I shared this on my personal blog, but given the nature of what we do here at Dyed4you and Dyed4you Ministries in general, I felt like this was worth sharing because this is how we strive to operate: in love. We desire to see the Body function in the prophetic in a healthy, biblical way. After having been in a prophetic ministry for over a decade, I have seen how easy it is for it to be used as a weapon and for people to be hurt, disillusioned, and fall away as a result of lack of teaching in the prophetic and people not operating in it in a biblical way. Continue reading
Last fall we Announced Dyed4you Readymade. It’s been fun to see how things have developed as time has progressed and the store has come into its own. The following is a video that we created for the Etsy store as an overview about how it works and ties in with the vision of Dyed4you. Just wanted to share it here as well since it really captures the heart. 🙂 Continue reading
When the tabernacle was built the Lord says of the men he selected to lead the design/creation that He had “filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— to make artistic designs” (Ex 31:3-4).
We like to say that the words you receive from Dyed4you and Dyed4you Art are a portion of a conversation, not a conversation in its entirety. We love to hear that we’re confirming something He’s already shared. Ideally, each of us should hear His voice for ourselves and words from others should mostly confirm and expand things He’s already shared, but regrettably many of us have been taught to doubt our ability to hear Him for ourselves. We rely so strongly on our natural senses that we prefer to hear another person tell us what He’s saying to us because we trust our natural senses more than our spiritual ones. That’s usually because we’ve spent more time cultivating our natural senses while neglecting our spiritual ones (again often because we’ve been taught to do so). Continue reading
A while back I shared How-To Receive a Prophetic Word, and on our sites we talk about the letters (prophetic words) that come with our silk and art and the fact that they are supposed to be a portion of a conversation with God, not an entire conversation in and of themselves. These prophetic pieces are intended to facilitate conversation with God, add a dimension to interactions that are hopefully already occurring, or begin conversation if none is. Ultimately, relationship with Him is what we all should be working on and trying to strength and deepen. Continue reading
Several years back I did a post called Why it Matters Who Makes Your Flags. The short version is basically that I want to use tools made by those God has anointed to create them, not ones created in the flesh. I shared in that post several other ministries that I felt were anointed to create worship tools including of course our sister ministry Prophetic Worship Banners, Andrea York, and Margie Puckett of Unhindered and Unashamed. I wanted to share a couple more since I’ve acquired some new flags. Some are from the ministries I’ve already mentioned, but a couple new ones too. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
