Vote for me!

October 29, 2012

Hey there!
You read that right! I’m giving away free yarn… And not just to one of our DGY-ers… But to FIFTEEN.
As you already know, we are running in a FedEx contest and looking to get a grant so we can grow the company, help more of the women in Nepal and India become self-sufficient and provide for their families, and, of course, bring more fabulous yarn to you!
This is obviously very important to me because of what it means to those women I started Darn Good Yarn for and for all of you who create beautiful projects…
So, here is the deal! If we can get 2750 votes by Oct 2 then I will be giving fifteen of those who voted a free hank of reclaimed silk yarn… And one person will be getting a $50 gift card as well!
But… Here is the deal… You can up your chances to win… You can have up to TWENTY EIGHT chances to win!

After you vote, post on the Darn Good Yarn Facebook page or on the Darn Good Yarn blog (click here) saying that “I voted” (that’s one entry!). Then, share the contest with your friends, and I’ll give you another entry!
But… The other twenty six entries?
Well, this contest is going on until November 24th… And you can vote once a day! Just post saying you’ve voted again and you’ll get another entry… Up to 26 more!
Free yarn and shopping sprees while getting access to more yarn and helping women across the globe improve their lives?
Sounds phenomenal :)
In case you missed the link, vote for Darn Good Yarn and enter yourself to win yarn and shopping sprees here:
Talk soon, and, as always, if you have any questions shoot me an email or give me a call!

This week’s featured yarn: Stained Glass Wool and Recycled Silk Yarn

Save 20% This week only-Stained Glass: Wool and Reclaimed Silk Yarn

Silk and wool married so perfectly together. This is yarn that you’ve always wanted. You’ve dreamed of this yarn. I know I have!

This creative yarn was made in a wonderful small family-owned co-op/mill where 70 women and 30 men work and get paid fair wages to sustain themselves and their families.

The yarn comes in 2 different plies and it makes the thickness a little different.

The 2 ply has 84 yards per skein and is a worsted weight and the 4 ply has 70 yards per skein and is a chunky weight. Each skein is 100g. Every skein is a unique collection of color!
