Fiber Gift Tags and *Giveaway*




Picture it, you've spent months knitting a sweater for a graduation gift to a nephew. He loves it and it feels like a big hug when he wears it. Then, the unthinkable happens- he washes it in the washing machine and shrinks it to an unwearable size. All of that time, love and energy- lost to ignorance about hand-knit care.
Enter Fiber Gift Tags! Create custom tags, with care instructions, printed on quality heavy weight card stock. Fiber Gift Tags is based out of Canada, and they have tags for each of your fiber projects, including quilting and felting tags! There is no extra charge to have them customize tags for you, so let your imagination run wild. A few of you will be seeing them in your May box, so be on the lookout!
Fiber Gift Tags has graciously sent in a hand-turned WPI gauge in an exotic wood called Padouk for a giveaway! Just visit the online store, find something you'd like to have and write about it below. I will count your extra tweeting, ravelating, and blogging as extra entries!
Thank you Fiber Gift Tags for your superior product and generous sampling in the May box.

The celtic line is nice. I also think it's cool they'll do custom tags w/ your own jpg.

What a fabulous idea. I always wanted to have some sewn tags made up, but this is less costly and less work than sewing in tags. Love it!

I didn't even have to go to the store as I was lucky enough to snag some tags in my box this month. I was tickled when I saw them as I've been thinking about some of the projects I've doing for Christmas using fibers/yarns from my boxes and the re-claimed yarns and had been wondering the best ways to word each item in the description/care. These are great. And I do love the crochet tags as I have a wedding coming up this weekend and I'm giving them a handmade doily, so this one tag I got will be a perfect touch.

I really like the Celtic line spinning tag. I've been meaning to give a friend some of my handspun as a present, and those would be perfect to use as the labels.

I love the handknit tags with baby feet on them - seems like tags to go with baby gifts would be great.

Quilting Pansy said...

I love these, as I sew and crochet gifts. They have a variety pack that would work great.

I like the idea of fiber care tags for my handmake items. Since I make labels for all my quilts (which are all machine washable) it would be nice to have tags for my knits.

I like the kn7 Hand Knit Fiber Care Gift Tag - White Wool Ball, as well as the Celtic line. These are a great idea!

mamakin said...

I love the Celtic square & the fact that they customize. I do a lot of knitting for charity through our local hospital and the tags with blue & pink baby feet would be perfect!

SewMamaLady said...

I love these tags. They're a great idea. Having some with a picture of my own fiber would be awesome! Too bad about that sweater, are you going to knit him another one?

Dani said...

I love the Celtic knotwork tags!

lesliecooper said...

The Celtic Line is lovely. I also like the Felted Rainbow Bag tags. And all of the spinning tags are very pretty. I would have trouble picking one.

Great idea!

The blue or orange flower knit tags are quite pretty.

The Celti Square and Celtic Line designs are my favorites, but it's also wonderful that they'll work up special tags using your pics and verbage. I've posted to my blog.

Jan L said...

These are a wonderful idea. The fact that they are willing to personalize them makes them all the better.
I need some of these.

One Sheep said...

I think the baby feet and rattles are cute, but Celtic Square is my favorite.

either of the two styles of "Hand Knit" care tags would be wonderful. I usually just scribble a little note, but this would be much more effective!

I particularly like that she has tags for felted items too!

ZombieCat said...

I got some of her tags in my box, they're sooo cute! On her site I like the hand spun tags, the pictures are adorable. I've already got a plan for the ones I've got, and now I know where to get more!

auntien said...

These are great. I spend way too much time making them myself and then trying to cut them all cutesy.

Brody Knits said...
