From chats on Facebook and many inspiring emails, I know lots of you Darn Good Yarners do lots of great crafting for charities of all kinds. There are so many great places to donate knitted and crocheted items! It’s great that so many people are inspired to give to great causes.
Here at Darn Good Yarn we are all about supporting people. Supporting the families in India, Nepal and Chile that make our yarn, and supporting everyone that love and support us in every way that we can! Now we have a whole new way in which we want to support everybody out there that is crafting for charity.
If you have a charity event that you are crafting for, or items that you are donating for a raffle – anything for a good cause – we’d love to give you a great deal on our fabulous Assorted Chiffon Ribbon.
You can get great discounts on packs of chiffon and make excellent projects that will bring in the money for charity. Don’t know what to make? We might have a few ideas…
Interested? Want to get crafting for charity right away? Just tell us all about it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll let you in on all the great deals available!

Whoa! These stunning items were made by Darn Good Yarner Tiziana from Italy. They’re absolutely breathtaking, and really let the recycled sari yarn really shine. Absolutely wonderful. Go like her Facebook Page too. I’ll wait.
Thank you so much for submitting these! I love how you integrated a little touch of beads here and there to really accent the yarn.
If you’ve made something from Darn Good Yarn, send pictures over to Jen (email@example.com) and we’ll feature you on the blog!

It’s true. It’s Tuesday and my second, third and fourth winds have abandoned me and all we’re left with is one crazy owner of Darn Good Yarn.
I hope you get a laugh, I know I did…. I have been told I’m my own best friend…that’s a good thing right?

How’s it going?
So, I just wanted to share a way to fix or reinforce your yarn swift! The one thing I wanted to note that I didn’t in the video below is that when you attach the zip ties, don’t make them too tight, you want them to be the same circumference of the loop of twine that was in its place. That will allow for flexibility and movement of those parts for different sized skeins.

Bonjour mes amis!
So, if you’re hooked up with Darn Good Yarn then you’re a supporter of non-”big boxed” businesses. Many of us live in communities where these publicly traded companies have bled out the small “mom and pops”. This is why I wanted to bring another great company: The Goulet Pen Company: http://www.gouletpens.com
Go check em out!
