Wildcard Fiber Arts Spindle Giveaway!


Kaylan of Wildcard Fiber Arts is a fairly new phattie- I don't think we've featured here on the blog yet. Yay! New phatties!!! I think the shop will be closed for the weekend, so your orders will not ship until next week- but that's ok! We love to shop and fantasize anyway, right :)

We're giving away this beautiful Wildcard fiber arts spindle! It's Dragon's blood jasper with a rosewood shaft! It's 50mm across and 32 grams in weight- so perfect for spinning lace and other lightweight yarns!

Please visit Wildcard fiber arts today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We will be drawing for a winner soon, so be sure and use facebook, twitter, plurk or other social networking to get the word out about this shop- we'll count that as extra entries!

I love this concept and the stunning colors of the stones used in the counter. I would call it bacterium because it reminds me of this http://www.nature.com/news/2004/041011/full/news041011-3.html !

I love the India Script Stone bottom whorl - the stone is so lovely... I can only imagine how gorgeous it would be spinning. I'm a new spinner and eager to try different yarn weights. I knit a lot of lace, so this spindle really caught my interest.

I can't decide between the Picasso jasper and the Tiger Iron. Her work is so beautiful. The removable stitch markers are great, too. I love mine - use them all the time!

kristen said...

i love the Green and White Howlite Top Whorl Drop Spindle

thanks

Susan F. said...

The Brown Dragon & Red Phoenix carved jade drop spindles are two of the prettiest I've ever seen!

kerrison said...

I bought my first spindle from Kaylan several months ago and I fell in love IMMEDIATELY - which was odd, because I had tried other spindles and H.A.T.E.D them.

Her spindles are beautifully balanced, crafted with love, and make the most wonderful fibers!! I'm currently working on a shawl made with fibers spun on my dyed Jade spindle from wild card.

I bought another friend her first spindle from Kaylan - why? Because I know she will FALL IN LOVE with the product.

Payday is friday... I think I'm getting some of Kaylan's stitch markers! :) I'm in love with the green w/stars.

(I can't justify yet another spindle... though I wish I could. But coveting stitch markers? Totally acceptable!)

ikkinlala said...

The Tiger Iron top whorl spindle is gorgeous!

Rachael said...

Love the Dragon Head Carved Jade - Bottom Whorl Drop Spindle!

Ilona said...

The Blue Veined Howlite is just amazing!

Marlitharn said...

They're all beautiful, but I think I like the Carved Beasts white jade spindle the best!

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I think I can narrow it down to three - PAGE1, PAGE2 & PAGE3. That's everything in the shop today, and it is all so lovely. Forced to choose just one item, it would be the Carved Beasts White Jade - Bottom Whorl Drop Spindle.

vickie said...

I love the hot pink dyed howlite drop spindle

ania65 said...

It's so hard to choose a single item. It'd have to be a spindle...but which one ? I think possibly the green jade carved dragon one...but really almost any of the spindles would float my boat.

Oooooh, I need another spindle! I love the blue and pink dyed howlite spindle. I also love all of the removable stitch markers. I think I'm going to have to start collecting stitch markers just for the collecting aspect - I don't need a bazillion stitch markers but the more I see, the more I want!

sock2girl said...

What a pretty spindle. All her spindles looked pretty. Cbut the one that caught my eye is Home > WildcardFiber's shop > Drop Spindles
PRE-ORDER: Beaded Filagree Flower - Bottom Whorl LACE spindle



This listing is for a PRE-ORDER of a Hand Beaded, Filagree Flower Bottom Whorl Drop Spindle for the July theme of Phat Fiber. I currently have a limited quantity of the spindles, but would be happy to get supplies for more if there is enough interest. This pre-order is open to let me know how many whorls I need to get my hands on!

The cost for the spindles will be $30. I'm asking for a $5 deposit now to reserve your spindle. So, you'll pay the $5 now and when the spindles are ready to ship I will post reserved listings for the remaining $25 and shipping ($5 US, $7 International).

I'll leave pre-orders open until July 13th and the spindles will ship on July 15th!

The spindles are available on the Rosewood shaft as pictured, or a lighter maple color. Default will be the rosewood, if you would like light please make a note of that in the note to seller!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to let me know.

THESE SPINDLES ARE VERY, VERY LIGHTWEIGHT. They average around 8 grams, give or take an ounce. They are for very fine laceweight spinning. They do not spin for long periods of time, they don't have the mass to do so. If you want a little more weight, please note that in the notes to seller and I can bead both top and bottom of the whorl- that will add about 2 grams and $10 to the price.

I also have many colors of glass beads available. I'm happy to take requests, just send me a conversation

*******
The spindle photographed is not the spindle you will be receiving. You will receive one similar. Same size, same pattern of beads and shaft- but there may be some slight variance.

SPINDLE WILL NOT SHIP UNTIL JULY 15TH! If you need a spindle sooner than that, please feel free to check out my other listings!
