Mini Packs of Recycled Sari Silk Ribbon Now at Darn Good Yarn – Newsletter

February 14, 2013

Phew! Sorry it’s been so long since I sent an email out. Things have been CRAZY ever since we won the FedEx Small Business Grant Contest!

I’m actually doing last minute preparations for the FedEX Press Crew– They’re heading down right now to record and get a sense of what is going on. I’ll be posting pictures of the events on our Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/dgyarn) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/darngoodyarn) so you can get a taste of what is going on here… After all, YOU had a big part in us winning!

Make sure you let me know if there is anything in particular you’d like to see or have posted!

With that said, I have been hearing what you and the rest of your fellow Darn Good Yarn-ers have been saying… There are times where you don’t need a giant skein of fiber for a project. Maybe you just want a little bit to accent a project or maybe you need a tad more to complete the last part. Maybe you’re just looking to make some jewelry to accent your scarf!

Well, I know that times are a bit tougher now (Mike commutes and is here only a weekend or two a month.. believe me, I know…), so I want you to be able to finish ALL your projects instead of having to spend more because you needed “just that little bit for a finishing touch.”

I have created “mini” packs of some of our most popular ribbons and they are now available. They’re a little bit more expensive “per yard” because we needed to create special packaging, cut them to length, etc. but, believe me, I’m giving away for as little as I can… This is more a service to you :-)

You can do a LOT of cool things with this yarn: make jewelry, add accents to projects, add trim, create tassels, extend the length of your knitted item, etc.

For the next week, if you order $70 or more of yarn, we will throw in a FREE mini-skein of yarn of your choosing!

On top of that, if you cant choose between yarns and won’t be able to order $70+, I’m also offering a 20% discount on up to three mini-skeins of yarn if your order is $49 or more. Use code MINIRIBBON at checkout (exp 2-17)

FINALLY! I will be holding a contest. Once you get your mini-skeins of yarn, post a cool project you have completed on http://www.facebook.com/dgyarn with them and the winner will get a $25 gift card + 10% off as well!

Stay fabulous darlings!

Hi friends!

 

Guess what, I am under 200 emails that I have to answer..not bad eh?! I think I can do it over the next few days.

This is why there is coffee right?

But in my quest to clean up my inbox and make my to-do list one page long vs. needing a binder I had to show you my friend’s blog! Cindy is an off-the-hook mixed media artist. I’ve often just looked through her blog her etsy store which I implore you to go and visit!  Here is a link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CrimsonHeartStudios?ref=seller_info

Like check this out… (you can click on the picture to take you to the etsy listing)

Tempered Glass and Polymer Clay Cottage

Wouldn’t that be perfect for a house warming gift?!

But in the meantime, Cindy was busy at work making some super cool Recycled Silk Sari Flowers. I’m not going to show a picture though. You have to visit the post and leave a comment!

Have a great day!

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:) ): http://www.facebook.com/DarnGoodYarn

And then join the Darn Good Yarn group: http://www.facebook.com/DarnGoodYarn#!/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!
