A great friend of Darn Good Yarn, Rebecca Duran, is taking her love of all things fiber inspired to the next level and opening her own store! If you live in or around Savage, Maryland, get over there right away! Her grand opening is this Friday, October 11th, and she is doing a fabulous giveaway, including some Darn Good Yarn products!
Rebecca exemplifies the practices we follow and love to see here at DGY. She works only with Fair Trade imports, and all of her other items are American Made. She also spins wool from local farms, is a feature at the Laurel, MD farmers' market, and was just recently awarded the Military Spouse Business Association’s 1st Annual Red, White and Blue Awards. Wow! Not that we're prejudiced or anything, but she said some nice stuff about us, too. (We're blushing from her praise!)
Her store, Peaknits, contains lovely one-of-a-kind woven, knit, crocheted, hand spun and hand dyed items. If, like me, you can't hop in your car and drive 7 1/2 hours to visit the store as soon as possible, she also has her things on Etsy. I'm loving the hand woven blankets. I also love that the blanket models are a dog and a rabbit. The blankets look even more cuddly.
Rebecca has made excellent use of Darn Good Yarn as well, making this wonderfully colorful hat with Sari Ribbon!
Well, what are you waiting for? Like Rebecca's store on Facebook right here. Head over to Maryland. Take a felting class. Learn how to spin. Lets show some DGY love for a great fellow crafter.
Craftily yours, the brand new DGY blogger,
