Maude and Me Giveaway!
I am so excited to share with you my latest club shipment from Maude and Me! A beautiful postcard from New Zealand, a tasty chocolate bar (Apparently Kiwis have the good sense to TOAST almonds before smothering them in chocolate- bliss!), some practice Poi ( a traditional Maori dance implement) and some stunningly dyed NZ Polwarth! A truly amazing package from an incredibly sweet person! You might think a club like this would be expensive to participate in, but the exchange rate there is quite in favor for we North Americans and Europeans.
I whole heartedly admit I stalk Maude and Me's shop often, most of the time just to see what interesting new names she's come up with for her roving! Tracee has a new group on Ravelry for her shop: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/maude--me where you can look at what other folks are getting from beautiful middle-earth (I wonder if New Zealanders are tired of the LOTR references yet?)
Before I get to the giveaway (squee!) I must share with you a story about my experience with Kiwis beyond the lovely Tracee (I hope this isn't a derrogatory term- someone please tell me if it is!). I sent a package to Miss Tracee (that is how I addressed it to!) and neglected to write a street address! The Dunedin postmistress googled Phat Fiber, emailed me about a week and a half after sending it to ask what the correct address was! Can you believe it? I was really impressed, can you tell?
We're giving away an amazing full sized NZ Polwarth roving- lovingly dyed by Tracee in here Kerrigan colorway. This is also what will be in the September box next weekend (oops did I write that out loud?)! Just visit Maude and Me, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below here- remember as always we grant extra entries for each social networking ping you do- facebook, plurk, twitter, ravelry, blog it will count!
Tracee, you're awesome and so is your fiber!
