I’ve been busy making yarns for my next show, The Knit and Crochet Show, but had to stop and post when I saw that this Friday is “International Fairy Day”. What else would you expect from Fairy Yarnmother……..
They have lots of interesting pages to look at, the latest fairy fashions, recipes, instructions to make wings and hair adornments, etc. Here’s the official website, http://www.fairyday.com/index.html

Can’t wait until the Janesville show! It’s the first show that I’ve got in 2011, and it’s a fun one. The people are really friendly and the facilities are beautiful, which make it a joy to vend there. It’s held in a community center, The Gathering Place, in Milton, WI. Here’s the link for it, http://jakg.org/id18.html. Sign up for classes if you can, the prices are excellent and the teachers are great. The Janesville Area Knitting Guild sponsors it. They’ve opened it up to non-members now, so if you act quick you can register. :)
I’ve been dying up mohair/silk blend top for the Knit-in. It’s to die for, it’s so pretty. Can’t wait to show it to people.
Here’s what I made for the Knit-in last year.
Up until now, we’ve been shipping packages to our US customers via Priority Mail. As of January 4, the cost of Priority Mail is going up though. Way up. Up so much that we don’t think anyone will want to pay that much. So we’re switching to First Class. If you’d still like Priority Mail shipping, let us know and we can tell you how much it would cost, but we figure most people would probably rather just pay less. And of course shipping for US orders over $100 is still free!
This is the newest blog for the Fairy Yarnmother website. There was another blog, but it was harder for me to update and I’m hoping that this one will easier to keep current because it’s linked to my FiberArtCafe blog. I’ll use this site to post the things there isn’t any room for on the website.
Below are examples of the types of yarns and fibers for sale at Fairy Yarnmother. Follow the link and check it out! There are several artists selling at the site and the address is Fairy Yarnmother.
Here’s some wonderful websites with $5 off coupons for Stitches Midwest this weekend. Hope to see you there, I’ll be at booth #534.
