Dawning Dreams and *Giveaway*
I was very fortunate to learn a little about fiber and metal artist Dawn Riden, by participating in a Valentine's swap on Ravelry. It turns out, Dawn has family members who live in my neck of the woods and makes visits here every once in a while. I hope we get to grab some coffee together when she's here again, as I would love to talk more with her about her beautiful wire work!
Dawn sent in several lovely hand made metal shawl pins, made with very simple but beautiful lines, for the March Box. Pictured above is her April contribution! A very "green" handspun using fabric strips plied with thread. I would love to see a knitted pillow or purse out of this stuff!
Dawn's May's samples just arrived (no pics yet!) and after opening her box, I am left wondering what the woman can't do! I feel very privledged to be able to call such talented artists like Dawn friends!
Dawn has made the most beautiful wire wrapped and beaded orifice hook for a giveaway! It reminds me of some sort of sceptor- fit for a queenly (or kingly) spinner! All you have to do to try and win this beautiful tool is visit Dawn's Shop and find something you like. Post about it below here, and you'll be entered to win next Thursday! I always count your extra social media networking about this contest as extra entries- just let me know what you did to help get the word out about Dawn's lovely shop!
Thank you so much Dawn, for creating beautiful and funtional tools and materials for us to enjoy! We very much look forward to your contribution to the Phat Fiber experience.
