Sari Silk Ribbon Necklaces and a bit by Tracy from Make Bracelets! – Darn Good Yarn

June 19, 2013

Do you have an itch to make some jewelry? When the scarves and mittens come off, our necks and wrists can suddenly feel bare! Tracy over at Make Bracelets! featured Darn Good Yarn’s 5 yard Sari Silk Ribbon cards recently, so we just had to share this with you all!

Aren’t they absolutely stunning?! I personally LOVE wrap bracelets, so these are a big hit with me. And with so much variety with the ribbon colors and bead combinations, the possibilities are endless. :)

South Frontenac Fibers Interviews Darn Good Yarn!

May 20, 2013

Teira from South Frontenac Fibers asked me for an interview. She’s got the post up on her blog, so go take a look! Teira is a knitter and spinner, and has dogs and chickens. She posts on her blog frequently, and there’s a lot of great stuff to read there too. One of her goals this year is to create some patterns. Woot! I know I’m looking forward to a sock pattern, even though I’ve only made one pair (those were made special for the Darn Good Husband)!

I had so much fun answering her questions, and even made two video responses. Haha, I’m glad you got a good laugh, Teira. :D

Here is the video:

Thank you so much for doing this feature on your blog, Teira.

FedEx Hung Out with the Darn Good Yarn Crew: Behind the Scenes! – Darn Good Yarn

March 5, 2013

Okay, so it’s been a few weeks since they were here, but I wanted to share with you all the great fun we had with this sweet little sampling of candid pictures. You can always find more of the photos in my Facebook fan page gallery!

Squeakers just has to take the show!:

Making great content isn’t always beautiful. Sometimes you have to cook in front of the fire, like poor Greg had to do for the audio!:

And finally, a sneak peek at the basement. Squeakers is exhausted from all of the excitement. What a day it was!:

Again, without all of you to support us, Darn Good Yarn would never have won this awesome grant. Thank you for everything you do!

FedEx Had a Great Time Hanging With the Darn Good Yarn Crew!

February 21, 2013

Alright, it’s all over. Time to resume a normal day at Darn Good Yarn (I might be too ecstatic to do that!). Mike, the Darn Good Husband, and I had such a blast with the FedEx crew! They were absolutely amazing. Thank you all for coming out to hang with us!

We managed to take some fabulous behind the scenes photos while they were here. Check them out!:

And here’s a thumbs up from The Darn Good Husband (he was such a wonderful husband that week!–well, he’s always wonderful):

One of the other things Darn Good Yarn did was show FedEx how we work in the community. Here’s a picture of us at the Agway, teaching people to knit (with big needles and fabulous yarn, of course!):

This was such a memorable event for us, and we have to send a big thank you to ALL of our Darn Good Yarn fans! We couldn’t have gotten here without you. :) Big love going out to everyone!

FedEx is Filming Darn at Good Yarn!

February 13, 2013

Hey everyone! Some really cool things have just happened. Remember back when Darn Good Yarn won that $25,000 grant award from FedEx? Well, they’re in my living room! Yup, here’s me sitting all cool and collected (psst! Look at how tidy my desk is!):

Fedex is coming to Darn Good Yarn

..and look at that, I’m even wearing FedEx colors! Alright, deep breath. It’s going to be hectic here with the filming crew, but it’s a great way to show a big business how hard small business owners work. I mean, most businesses start out this way, right?

Here they are setting up for the interview:

It feels really official now! Well, I can’t post too many behind the scenes pictures right now…I gotta build up the suspense! More pictures can be found on my Facebook page if you haven’t already joined me. :)

Oh, and here’s a picture at the Agway, just before we start the knitting class! (Yeah, that’s the Darn Good Husband in the background there!):

So excited! Stay tuned for more teasers. :D
