Dowel Wing Change

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

Anointed Artisans

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

Operating in Love (The Prophetic Voice)

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

About Dyed4you Readymade

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

Anointed vs Counterfeit

This is my third post now about  Why it Matters Who Makes Your Flags and why it’s so important to have tools Created Under the Anointing. I want to start by quoting a section of my initial post. 

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).

How-to Receive Dyed4you Art/Silk

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

What is a Prophetic Word?

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

Created Under the Anointing

silkscreatedundertheanointingSeveral 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 BannersAndrea 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

Re-Weighted LSF (Large Swing Flags)

Just wanted to give you all a quick heads up, we’ve redesigned our Large Swing Flags (LSF) a bit making them a tad lighter and redistributing the weights so they’re in two rows rather than three (which makes them feel less bulky). We think they flow better and hope you will too! Didn’t want any of you who have gotten a LSF before to be surprised by the change 🙂 Happy worshipping!  Continue reading

Announcing Dyed4you Readymade

announcing_d4y-readymadeSo excited to announce a new Dyed4you development: Dyed4you Readymade. We know there have been times that you all have wanted to purchase a last minute gift for someone, but because of the timeframe on our custom orders you’ve either had to have it arrive late or chosen another gift. Well, with our new Dyed4you Readymade we’ve solved the problem!  Continue reading

Introducing Large & Light Swing Flags

LLswingWe’re officially launching a new product called the Large & Light Swing Flags!  These are the same size as our large swing flags, but are made out of 5mm china silk instead of 8mm like the regular and large are.  That means they are lightweight and floaty – a slow flag – great for intimate devotion time!

Can You Still See Us?

Recently Dyed4you has been experiencing some brute force attacks on our website – in other words, people have been trying to hack us :/  As a result some IP addresses have been blocked, but we discovered some of YOU were among the ones blocked!  Obviously that was NOT our intention!!!

So if you no longer can access any of the Dyed4you sites, leave a comment below letting us know, then visit What is my IP? and when we respond to your email send us your IP Address (which is a series of numbers with periods in between) and we’ll get you cleared back up! Continue reading
