Clear, direct, informative
Deb Menz presents information in a clear and accessible manner. Her passion for color, fiber, and sharing with other enthusiasts is obvious as is her depth of knowledge. Beginning and experienced fiber artists will find useful and inspirational information. Now the challenge is to put her exercises into action and develop a deeper understanding of color within myself. Review by lynda (Posted on 10/28/2015)
Well presented and informative
This DVD was very informative and gives a good sense and ideas for combining and blending colors in making yarns. My only reservation is that the color brown was not discussed at all. I am interested in the use of brown in creating warmer colors in yarn. I also find that my color sense may differ from others or that my computer may have different color presentation.

Some inspiration and Good presentation
I am inspired, which is what I was looking for. I especially appreciated the information on matching a color and how to create a colorway from a picture/swatch. The practical application of how to proceed. I have the color pencils, fabric swatches and ideas for where I want to go with them, I even got my pencils out to try to figure out how to get some of the colors, but now I know how to proceed and get the results I'm looking for. this is very hands on, and not as technical a presentation as some, but good information and well presented.
