Free Shipping Experiment and more!

June 15, 2011

Hi Dahlings!

So, how’s your day going? I have some great news for you!

But first, have you joined the Darn Good Yarn page on Facebook? Be in the know for all things Darn Good Yarn, exclusive sales, craft ideas and so much more. Just click this link and “Like” the page!

While you’re at it (and if you’re not already) friend me too! Just follow this link:


**Thank you for the “Like”!** :)

Next up, I’m running a little experiment. From now until next Friday–

US orders over $25 will ship for free!

Canada and the UK will still have a flat rate. At the end of next week I need to make sure that everyone we’re helping in India and Nepal are getting a fair wage for their work and that we can afford to purchase more yarn!

And now for the last big announcement! Although I announced this on facebook (another reason you should “like” the group) Did you know that Mikey and I are moving to Maine in 2 weeks? I am so excited! But that means that I won’t be able to ship between June 25th and about July 14th. So you can still place orders on the site they just won’t ship until I get up and running again. So again,

No Orders Will Be Shipped Between Jun 25 and Jul 14th

Thank you for all of your support!

It means the world to us and the countless women we all continue to help!

Nicole, Mike and Squeakers

Wednesday/Thursday Update!

June 1, 2011

Well Howdy-do!

I love June so much..because my birthday is at the end of the month. While I’m turning 29, I act like such a little kid around it except with lots more champagne:) Just ask Mike…he came home once to see me halfway through my Carvel cake with no remorse whatsoever (yes I have a terrible sweet tooth–man those crunchy things are AWESOME!!!) But the weather is getting nicer and I can wear my caftans around now without getting too crazy of looks when I go food shopping. Yippee for summer!

Click the yarn to view the new arrivals

Last week was nuts! I got some test ribbons and a new sari silk cord in. If you haven’t been to the site I do have some colors left in stock but others have flown out of here. But if you’re too late for your favorite color don’t fret. Just be sure to visit the item that is sold out and fill your email address out for a stock notification and I’ll email you when I get more in stock. Right now I think it will be about 6 weeks (these yarns and ribbons take a long time to make!!!) If you would like to view the new items on the site please be sure to click here.


With that being said, when I have new yarns I generally post them to facebook. So if you’re not a friend with me or Darn Good Yarn, go ahead and get connected!

Friend me personally (I don’t bite:) ):

And then join the Darn Good Yarn group:!/pages/Darn-Good-Yarn/85866917614

In other news, I’ve decided to do a grab bag option for the Recycled Resolutions yarn. It’s super duper discounted and it’s for my oddballs in color. So, if you’re looking to take a walk on the wild side then this is a big score! Click here to check it out and be sure to review the drop down menu because you get big discounts when you buy in 10′s and 20′s

For the rest of the week be sure to follow the blog. I’m going to talk about a cool project Darn Good Yarn helped out with a girl scouts’ group and if I’m reallllllly good, another free pattern will be coming your way. Do you remember where the blog is? If not, just click here

Thank you for all of your support!
