Zebisis Spindle Giveaway!




If pictures say a thousand words, I do hope these count as thousands of flowery prose for Zebisis Designs.
Maiysha has had a rough couple of months, and is just getting her shop back fully stocked, so please keep checking back for more updates!
I just received my second club shipment from her, and I am blown over by the quality of the mulberry silk Maiysha included in this shipment. It is, without a doubt the most tender, most soft, most luxurious bit of fiber I have had a chance to experience. Please, be kind to yourself, find some of this and purchase it!
You're so lucky! Wanna know why? Cause Maiysha sent in a spindle to giveaway! It is all wrapped up, so I cant tell you what it looks like, but you know it's gorgeous!
Please visit Zebisis Designs, find something you like, and post about it in the comments section below! Remember to use facebook, twitter, plurk and ravlery to get the message out about Zebisis Designs! I will count your extra social networking as extra entries!
Thank you, Maiysha for this lovely opportunity!

mamakin said...

I've been visiting this shop a lot lately, just falling love with the spindles I hope to get one day. My favorite is BLACK JASPER - It has to be the most beautiful piece of art in the spinning world. I also like the UNAKITE spindle and would like to live in a bed covered in the Mulberry Silk Top called Night Time Berry Picking * sigh* .
I've twittered, blogged, plurked (where is everyone there???) facebooked & sang about them while I showered!!

Zebisis always has the most lovely things. I really like the art batts and frequently look to see what's new at the shop. Today the Song of the Periwinkle Hand Painted Silk top literally leaped out of the page to catch my eye. What a wonderful hand you have adding color to silk. ~sciteacher @Ravelry

I simply love this shop. The UNAKITE Top Whorl Drop Spindle ( http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24603297) is absolutely stunning.

My only spindle is from hand made cardboard and weights - I would love to try one of the beautiful Zebisis spindles!

Emily said...

I pretty much stalk the shop on a daily basis! I am a die-hard bottom whorl spindle fan, so I love coming across the occasional bottom whorl in your shop; it makes me smile! Your fibers are so vivid and pretty and I am in awe of your picture taking ability! Yay!!

Dani said...

I love everything? Especially her silk - I couldn't possibly pick just one colorway!

LeiLaniSue said...

I've been eyeing her jasper drop spindles for a while - they are lovely!!! The Leopard Skin Jasper is my current favorite. And to spin on it - the Just Before Nightfall silk roving!!!

knitterellapurl said...

I love how her roving has very deeply dyed coloring! It is so beautiful. Also, her spindles are gorgeous :)

LDSVenus said...

Thank you for the link, I had not seen her etsy shop before. How can you post about only one thing in her shop :P. The spindles are to die for and I fell in love with the Milk Protein top that is turquoise and purple (which were my wedding colors :P). Hopefully it will still be there next Friday when I get my paycheck so I can buy it, I've never spun the milk protein before, it would be interesting.

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I love the Leopard Skin Jaspar spindle. The first time I saw this shop I thought they were just beautiful and I keep coming back to admire them. If I could afford it, I can easily see myself collecting these.

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

Forgot to mention I've posted to my blog.

Toby said...

I've had Maiysha on my list of Etsy Favorites for a couple months now. I'm totally bummed she's decided not to offer her club anymore (at least that's how it stood last time I checked) because I LOVE her spindles paired with a gorgeous fiber, but I can't ever decide WHAT to buy. Seriously I have spent probably 5 hours oogling her listings and I can't decide! My current choice would be the Leopard Skin Jasper spindle paired with the Flower milk protein - cause it's just better to get a new spindle with a new fiber!

tom said...

I've never spun so a spindle would be great. The turquoise spindle is wonderful

Elaine said...

Mulberry silk is just wonderful!

Elaine said...

And I've blogged about this contest too at elaine-knitting.blogspot.com

Jersey said...

The Leopard Skin Jaspar spindle is wonderful! I'd love to win a spindle and the fibers are beautiful!

Rachel O said...

There is not a single spindle that I would not love to own and have as a displayed object. Just beautiful.

purple-power said...

The Turquoise Howlite spindle is my favorite.

knitting fool said...

Yikes - almost 100 already. The turq howlite spindle is my favorite

Carla said...

Fabulous! Especially NIGHT TIME BERRY PICKING silk. sigh

LICraftgal said...

The strawberry quarts spindle is sooo beautiful!! Not to mention the spring evening roving, oh purty!! Must tell my knitting group about her.

Knitmomma said...

I love her shop! My favorite is BLACK JASPER Top Whorl Drop Spindle, although the fiber is gorgeous too...

EJ said...

I just love the Leopard Skin Jasper spindle. I keep going back to peek at it.

Sylvia said...

Every one of the spindles are a work of art. I like the leopard skin one best I think.

adrienne said...

Lovely stuff! I really like the La Bella Vita milk fibre - I haven't spun milk fibre before, and I bet it would be really cool!

Max. H said...

The Cassandra top is really nice, too. Really nice blend of colors. Guess I have to have the Strawberry Quartz spindle, too. I think I love drop spindles better than my Ashford Traddy.
