Tuesday Update:I lost my marbles

March 22, 2011

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?

Much love!

Hi there!

How’s the holiday shopping going? Are you making a lot of projects? I’m falling a little behind schedule but as I cross loved one’s gifts off my list I can’t help but think of all of the women we have all helped this year. You truly are amazing and your support through the year has meant the world to these women who hand make the yarns you have grown to love.

But, I REALLY want to help a lot of people this holiday season! And knowing that you love making a difference like I do I had a great idea. So, you already know about Darn Good Yarn’s year-round deal when you purchase 5 yarns you get a 6th yarn for free…

Well, here is something HUGE! From now until Dec 31 when you purchase four yarns, get the fifth one for free!

All you need to do is add the 4 yarns to your cart and message me as what you’d like your 5th yarn (of equal or lesser value) to be! Consider it my gift to you!

What an amazing gift you can give to your loved one or yourself! Fair trade yarn created by women. You will be providing not just a gift to your loved ones but the tremendous gift of support to others who desperately need it.

Fellow Darn Good Yarner, Stephanie, said “Divine does not even begin to describe the yarn and its colours…. Thank you again so much for having such a wonderful and socially conscious product.

Be sure to tell your friends about this too! It’s a great deal and great cause.

Namaste and love,

Nicole, Mike and Squeakers

PS- Don’t forget that this “five yarns for the price of four” deal isn’t just going to help you, it is also going to help countless women in Nepal and India!

Name that color NOW!!!

Good morning Darn Good Yarners!

I told you that you would have a lot of opportunities this month to name some yarns. I have four more for you this morning. To submit your ideas, just leave your response as a comment below! I numbered the yarn’s in their captions so you can just type something like 1= xyz, 2=abc etc.

This is a quick one so make your entries this morning and tell your friends to get in on the action

Have a great day!

The Creativity of Daphne

September 16, 2010

I love Canada (did you know I went to school not too far from the border? Go Clarkson University!) and I’ve had some good times there (which we’ll save for another blog post). But I love Canada even more now because that’s where Daphne is from!

Who is this Daphne? An entrepreneur, an artist, a knitter, a yarnaholic, a fantastic photographer and a fellow Darn Good Yarner!

I wanted to share pictures of some of the items she made (including Darn Good Yarn’s very own 20,000 Leagues Under the Purse).

Did you know you can find her at craft fairs around Prescott Ontario too?! If you’re going to be in the area and want to check out (and buy) one of her purses here’s her contact info. Even if you’re not in the area and would like to purchase one of these simply darling bags (Remember the holidays will be here sooner than you know!!!) just shoot her an email and she’ll get you set up and ship it to you!

Daphne’s info is : 613-925-3028 and she is located in Prescott Ontario Canada!
