Spread the Word {Win Some Yarn}!

As you may know, one of my business resolutions this year was to create more knit and crochet community events and fun.  I don’t know a lot of local crafters, and since I live in a small town, there are no yarn shops nearby.  Plus with two small kids at home, getting away just doesn’t happen very regularly.  So I’ve set out to create an online community where crafters like me can have fun, make friends, challenge their skills, and break out of the norm.


Home of the Mystery CAL/KAL

I’m really proud to say that it’s only April, but things have been steadily moving in such a wonderful direction!  I’ve already hosted two incredible Mystery Create-A-Longs this year which totally blew me out of the water with the number of people participating, and how kind and helpful everyone was.  The next Mystery CAL/KAL won’t be for another month or so, so in the mean time, my Group Manager, Claudia, has created a technique challenge over in the Facebook Group where everyone is trying out new techniques….with prizes up for grabs, and a truly wonderful group, these challenges should continue to be really fun events.

If you’re not already a part of the Facebook Group, you’re invited to come join in on the fun!  Just click here to be taken to the group now.  You’ll have to put in a request to join, but one of the admins will get you approved shortly so you can start participating in the fun!

So….now that I’ve just gone off on that long tangent, haha, it’s time to share something super exciting!  I’ve decided that in order to help spread the word about our wonderful little community, I’m going to host regular yarn giveaways!


Yarn Giveaway!

Every other week, I’ll post a new yarn giveaway.  Each time I’ll randomly choose yarn that looks fun to work with!  I love trying out new yarn, and this will give the winners a chance to do the same.  These giveaways will be open to everyone worldwide.  However, since shipping internationally costs so much, if the winner is outside of the United States, they’ll be sent a digital $25 Etsy Gift Card instead of the yarn from the giveaway.  That way everyone gets the chance to join in on the fun, but shipping out prizes won’t break the bank for me.

You have the chance to win some truly gorgeous yarn in this first giveaway!  I’ve got a hank of Handspun Thick and Thin Yarn from Spinning Wheel Studios, a hank of Rowan Colourscape Chunky, and a mystery hank of very colorful worsted weight (or at least that’s what it looks like) up for grabs.

    So fun but never have much luck figuring out how to use Rafflecopter. AT this point, I am already a newsletter subscriber, LIKED your Facebook page eons ago, have shared this post on PInterest, Facebook and Twitter, and the only thing I can get checked in Rafflecopter box is Confirming the Steps. I can’t click on anything else there; it won’t do anything.

    Anyone got any ideas how to make that work for me? This is the hardest one I’ve tried to do; can’t figure out why it won’t let me do anything else to earn those checkmarks; hmmmmmmm……technology.

  11. Your video was great! Have faith in yourself!! Yay for yarn!! ❤??
