Forgive me dear blog, I have not forgotten you or those who read you; but you know how it goes, works gets busy, the weather turns warm, the snow melts and then suddenly after months of not having anything to do your overwhelmed with the shear quantity if things you must accomplish…
And here we are, just days away from the May-Jun of the Spin Along shipping and I never even showed you a hint of what the Mar-Apr round looked like! How can you ever forgive me?
I will not make a promise I cannot keep, but: I will try really, really hard to stay on top of things around here…
Has really been a year?
Really? One year since ITW was launched?!
Over the past year I have learned more then I can even begin to describe. I have been blessed with many things since the launch of ITW, but none of them rival the friendships formed. To describe the past year is virtually impossible. Instead I will just say that it was spectacular and thank each and every person I had the privilege of working with, talking to, chatting with and in some rare yet delightful instances; actually meeting!
I think one of the best parts of ITW’s birthday is that it coincides with the Chancellor’s Sheep & Wool Festival which pretty much guarantees lots of colourful pictures in this post…
In celebration of ITW’s birthday there will be a shop update on Saturday May 1st at 8:00pm EST. And, as an expression of my sincere appreciation; shipping fees will be disabled from 12:00am Saturday morning until 11:59pm Saturday night.
Thank you again and see you Saturday!
Twenty-seven pounds of hand painted fiber bagged, tagged and ready to list in the shop on 1.12.2010 at 10:00pm EST!
So, what do the two coordinated items featured in the picture below have in common? Well…
They will soon belong to one lucky winner! Yep, both of them!
There are so many reasons why, but the most important of them all is simply because I wanted to give something back. Starting this venture has been one of the most exciting and rewarding things I have done to date and it is my turn to show my appreciation for the people who make it what it is. And lets be honest, I get something here too. Your feedback and word of mouth are by far the best advertisement I could ever ask for!
So, how does one get a chance at winning this fabulous coordinated give away?! Most importantly – No purchase is required, and you can have multiple chances to win! Here is the breakdown on how to gain those entries:
1) Visit the shops and find something that strikes your fancy (new or sold) and comment on this post before Midnight on Friday October the 2nd.
2) Blog about the giveaway and send your friends; just be sure they name you as their source – each time someone mentions your name in their comment – both of you gain another entry.
3) Tweet a link to this post or the shop and include #itw or #intothewhirled. Two tweets per day are permitted.
4) Help spread the word on Ravelry – just be sure to come back here and let me know!
