Join HeartStrings FiberArts on Facebook and Enter the Sock Therapy Kit Drawing

Please join me at the new HeartStrings FiberArts business page on Facebook. To celebrate, I am having a drawing for a Sock Therapy Kit. This kit includes yummy Merino blend yarn, “chocolate” ribbon and pattern to make socks as shown. Enter now. Comments close next Saturday, January 15 at midnight CST and I will announce the winner the next day.

You can click the picture below to preview the cover page of the pattern that is included in the kit. If you win the kit (and I hope you do!), you will get the complete printed pattern along with yarn and ribbon to make the socks.

Sock Therapy

This kit is the last of it’s kind; I will not be making up any more, so it’s quite special. I figured a contest was the best way to give it to someone special, because otherwise I would have an impossible time choosing from all of my wonderful friends and fans.

So com’on over now to HeartStrings FiberArts on Facebook and “Like” to become a friend/fan. Then comment under the post for “Sock Therapy Kit Drawing” letting me know you want to enter the drawing.

I’m cookin’ up more ideas for contests, giveaway’s and other fun stuff. So I hope to see you soon over at Facebook where you can keep up with what’s going on at my business.

The preview highlights the vendors who will be representing HeartStrings at the show and what they will have to entice you.

I personally will not be at the show this time, but I do plan to myself be back in the action again at next June’s show. Here’s a photo of my exhibit booth at the last show. KyleAnn is my able assistant  at the last several shows. She is a great knitter and designer in her own rights, and a good friend, too.

Patternfish offers full line of HeartStrings downloadable patterns

Patternfish is now a full-line dealer for HeartStrings downloadable pdf patterns. It’s taken a while to get everything listed but now that the full line is there, it will be easier and quicker turn-around to get new HeartStrings patterns posted as they are released. Julia, the “art gallery curator” of Patternfish, has been wonderful about taking the extra steps of amending my humble descriptions with witty and profound comments. She is a fantastic writer and I wish my own words would flow as easily as it seems they do for her!

Also, I occasionally offer first-run world and web exclusives on Patternfish. A world exclusive means the pattern is currently only available at Patternfish; a web exclusive means the pattern is currently only available in pdf format through Patternfish. In fact, hop on over to Patternfish now, because Julia just posted this HeartStrings world exclusive today —
