I was discussing with some great ladies the other day how despite being able to dye/spin/blend just about any fiber or yarn combination that I could dream up, I still really enjoy buying from other fiber artists. There are so many different color schemes out there and some people just have way different ideas than I do. In light of all that, I've decided to join a co-operative of some amazing indie dyers who work together to promote each others' shops. I'm presently a trial member which I think is great for proving that you are motivated and willing to work as part of the group beforehand. What I'd like to do is introduce you all to the present Fiber Indie eXperience Co-op sellers, or the FIX Chix as they commonly call themselves!
Right now the official members are:
icandyarn (etsy) & icandyarn
yarndemon & yarndemon
fancykitty & fancykitty
littlemonkeysns & LittleMonkeysStitchnSpin
bluemtnhandcrafts & bluemountainhandcrafts
bumblebeeacres & bumblebeeacres
and along with TheWackyWindmill 2 other shops that are currently participating in the next FIX Chix giveaway! They are: babester & (MadamFluffy) AKA Ozark Carding Mill
Not only do I get to be in the fine company of these wonderful fiber artists, you can also get in on the fun!! If you purchase items from any of the shops listed above, you qualify to enter into a draw for a $65 gift certificate which can also be used at any of the participating shops. The draw date will be at the end of December, just in time for that post Christmas slump when the wallet is all empty and sad looking. To take part in this all you need to do is purchase from one of the shops mentioned above (The Wacky Windmill is included). Then if you already aren't a member join The Fiber-Indie-eXperience-Co-op on Ravelry. Go to the thread listed as ALL: December FIX Drawing Entries and enter the requested info there. You get one entry per invoice and the more shops you visit the more likely it is that you will win!!
If you like free prizes then this is definitely for you!
Happy shopping & I hope you enjoy yourselves!
Oh Yeah!!! And as promised.......the partridge(s)
