Most Splendiforous Giveaway Post!!!
Wow – over 4000 likers on my Facebook page?! I am so honoured to be able to share my
obsession love of fiber with so many people. The whole thing is sometimes a little like a runaway train, I dont know where its heading but I am happy to be on it with so many friends. And its such a great enabler, I really like this technology and its ability to shrink the world and put us in contact with each other so effortlessly (well on a ‘good’ facebook day anyway!). It allows me to share ideas, get feedback, its a mutual inspiration source, and the fiber eyecandy found online often leaves me speechless, in a good way.
So to celebrate this new landmark in community I would love to share my newest project with you! There will be TWO CHOICES in this giveaway, because although I find it difficult to admit, I am aware that not everyone spins or wants to spin, and I dont want you to miss out 🙂 So one choice is for spinners and fiberistas, and the other choice is for people who love to knit or crochet or even felt!
Did you all see the big trend right now with the blending boards? To make art rolags to spin from? Of course you did, if you have the internet you cant have missed it! Theyre awesome right. Well coming soon I will be making blending boards for sale, hand painted and decorated by me and using the excellent quality Louet Carding cloth!
So my giveaway shall be one of my first hand painted WoolWench design blending boards!!!
I will be selling these in two versions, one plain undecorated, at an awesome price, and one a bit more expensive model that’s decorated in my own design, each will be a unique piece of art, individually created to order. And I will be giving away a painted board! Most boards I have seen online are selling for at least $120, so even though my board is going to be quite a basic board in terms of function, it WILL be pretty and with the Louet carding cloth, you know its going to work really well to blend your fibers and last you a long time! I am excited about these and I really want to share and not be the only one thats excited! 😛
These are a combination of two of my all time favourite things, fiber stuff and painting. I cant wait to get them made and using them and in my shop!
And if youre not a spinner… and would like something that isnt a blending board, I would be more than happy to use my own blending board to make some pretty rolly rolags to spin into a big skein of art yarn for you!! I will make it a super special art yarn, you tell me if you want thick and crazy textured or a smoother finer yarn with more yardage – your choice 🙂
Heres an example of what rolags look like;
So to enter the draw!! Leave a comment here, share the post, tell me what you love about wool and what you like to make with it 🙂 Lets celebrate! Check back in a week and I should have pics for you of the finished boards, including the giveaway prize 🙂 Also, keep it in mind, if you dont win but you do live in or handy to Holland, Patty and I are going to be running a DIY blending board workshop where you can make your own and share my paints, you’ll get your own board for much less than the cost of buying a pre-made one. Thats always cool huh.
I will keep the giveaway open for two weeks, and will post updates as I build the boards. Remember to leave your entry on this page though ok?
-Just a quick edit to say – the draw will be random and taken from the comments on this page, I use a WordPress plugin to choose the winner. I wish I could give one to everyone though!
Edit 10 March – progress!
