Dawning Dreams Spindle Giveaway!





After every each holiday gift-giving season passes, a part of me really hopes that more people are introduced to the amazing world of fiber through gifts they were given. If not, I hope that people spend their holiday money on developing skills with fiber, because it really is investing in yourself. Whether you are a beginning spinner, or one that's confident and proficient, there is always something new to learn and experiment with. Dawning Dreams creates stunning spindles that are perfect for beginners and experts alike.

These spindle are hand cut, assembled and decorated by Dawn and enjoyed by many of us! Larger retailers are stocking Dawn's spindles and she is quickly gaining a large following. Take a moment to visit Dawn's etsy shop and and check out all she has to offer.

To enter to win this spindle, please visit Dawning Dreams today, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below. When you go the extra mile and retweet, facebook, plurk, pin, google+ etc this, please let us know and we will add an additional entry.

BFL Wool Roving, Habanero Hoochie Coochie , 4 oz / 114 grams is my choice

Rebekah Evelyn said...

I don't spin myself, but some of my siblings do. I really, really like the colors in Superwash Merino Wool Roving, Dark Portal, 4 oz.

Zabelle said...

I really like her batts and spindles.

The colors in "Seaside Villa" really make me long for the sea. (Not to mention some warm weather....)

I, too, love the top drop spindle with the sprig of white flowers!

Anita Loechler said...

I love the top drop spindle with the white flowers, but it doesn't sound like it's for a beginner (I haven't spun in years, not enough time). Her rovings are beautiful, too.

Lindr said...

Yes, I do 'Fancy a Fall Dance'. Especially in wool batt form!

Sheila said...

I'd love to have the BFL Wool Roving, La Calavera Catrina, to spin with my new spindle that I'm going to win. I am going to win it, right?

Pinned and tweeted too.

Cat Ellen said...

Last time you listed her shop, I bought two spindles rather than NOT win the raffle drawing. I LOVE her work! I suppose my favorites today include: Spindle with Light Green stone, the Dragon's Breath batt, the Catwoman 2 batt, Citrus Bark gradient roving, and the Vine Ripened Deux gradient roving. So many great things!
