Desert Garden Fiber and Spindle kit giveaway!


We have a really fun spinning kit giveaway from Desert Garden today! Last month for the Sci- Fi box, Jennifer created some lovely "Metropolis" batts- you remember that old movie? It's really futuristic/high concept. Love it!

I'm here to tell ya, Desert Garden is back from vacation and her shop is full of fiber! She's always got some Spin A Long going on too- You can purchase 3 months to a year of spin a long packages and wait for a special surprise every month!

We're giving away this metropolis batts/spindle/hand sewn tote away today! Just visit Desert Garden, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Extra entries for pinging on Facebook/twitter/plurk!

I love the Inspineration Package - how very cool and great if you're like me and can never decide what to craft :-)

I like the Freder Metropolis batt, which is odd, because yellow is almost never my first choice in colors!
