Crochet Contest

  Conest is over - thanks everyone!  We'll announce the winners soon!   One of the best things about this job is the fact that I finally was introduced to crochet, much to my mom's delight.  She had tried to teach me so many times but it never stuck until about a year ago - and now I have so many great crochet patterns to choose from! Two of my all time favorite crochet designers are Ann Marie Ivins and Linda Permann - both of of whom I've discussed here on the blog.  Because I think they are both so wonderful, I figured I'd hold a blog contest to celebrate them!

This contest is now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated! To find out who won, click here: WINNERS After months of waiting and nervously registering for classes, the second Sock Summit is finally here! Everyone at the office has been reminiscing about the last Sock Summit, all the fun that was had, and of course - all the sock yarn that was aquired. Funny enough, I catch myself saying "Last year at Sock Summit..." but it was actually two whole years ago! And we are lucky enough to have Sock Summit here in Portland again this summer.

Stitch Heaven Salutes Barbara Walker DVD Giveaway

This contest is now closed. Thank you very much to everyone who participated! To find out who won, click here: WINNER New techniques, especially different stitches, can be so fun to learn! However, if you are new to stitch dictionaries - sifting through all of those instructions can seem a bit daunting, especially when the stitch uses an unfamiliar abbriviation or references an obscure technique. Additionally, everyone learns at a different pace and in different ways. This is why having technique and reference videos is so important, it really makes learning accessible to a wider range of crafters. This is why I am so happy to say we are giving away one copy of the DVD, "Stitch Heaven Salutes Barbara Walker!" The best part? It is signed by Barbara Walker!

Nominate Your Felici Favorites

This contest is now closed.  Thank you to everyone who participated.  To find out who won, click here: WINNERS   As most Felici self-striping sock yarn fans know, Felici colorways have always been limited edition. Each year, we come up with a new selection of colors, and buy a set amount. Felici aficionados have learned to stock up while the getting is good, sometimes certain colorways sell out fast (ahem, 2010's Rainbow)! This year was actually the first time we decided to bring back a color, Rainbow, from the previous year due to customer requests. Well now we're thinking about bringing even more colors back as Felici Favorites, but we want to hear from you!
