Promotion and Sale

 I mentioned in my last blog post that my yarn is being featured by an etsy shop owner After the Bump.  That's her facebook page link, her etsy shop is chronically sold out because her photo props and baby hats are so popular.  I am very excited to have my yarn featured in one of her OOAK nights.
 In anticipation of this, I've been doing some shop updating, and spinning and knitting like mad.  I spun my first deliberate thick and thin yarn from a Fleece Artist roving in the Beach House colorway.  It is an exquisitely soft 65%merino/35% silk blend, and the thick and thin spinning style preserved this softness.  It begged to be worn next to the skin, so I made a cowl and a baby hat from it.  Both of these are in the shop.
I also wanted to explain briefly how ATB's OOAK nights work.  At the appointed time,  8:00 pm MST, she will upload an album of photos to her FB page of products that are ready to ship, with prices listed in each photo.  The first to comment on each item with their paypal email is invoiced and then she ships out that night. 
In conjunction with this event and in hopes of hitting 25 facebook fans, so I can have a "real" FB page address, I am having my first ever sale.  You can get the sale coupon code at ATB's FB page tonight, or by liking my FB page, it will be posted there.  It will be active for one week from tonight.  Also, I am changing my shop policies to offer free shipping on all purchases over 30$.  I may not get all the individual listings changed by tonight, but if you make a qualifying purchase I will refund your shipping charges.
