Story Yarn and Beads Stitch Marker Giveaway

For this giveaway Story Yarn and Beads sent us this beautiful set of stitch markers. These match the ones that Jennifer put in the March Caterpillars and Butterflies boxes.


She has more in her shop. She says: Set includes 1 leader bead with 8mm green goldstone beads and pewter butterfly charm. There are three matching stitch markers for a total of 4 markers in this set. A silver-toned base metal clasp holds your markers, keeping them together until you are ready to use them. A locking stitch marker dangles from the holder on a lobster hook, lending decoration until you need to mark a spot in your knitting project.


These sparkle with lightly faceted round green goldstone beads. They look almost black on the table but when you see them in the light, the beautiful green shines through.

Plum Crazy Fiber Art Natural Carrier Rods Giveaway

For this giveaway Plum Crazy Ranch Fiber Art sent us some Natural silk carrier rods. I had to look up how to use these fun little things. Apparently silk carrier rods are a by-product of the silk industry. These particular rods are undyed and they still contain the natural sericin.



I found this info online: Silk carrier rods are formed during silk reeling, which is the process of unwinding silk from cocoons to make yarn. The filament that is being unwound passes over a rod called the ‘carrier rod’. During the reeling process filaments get wrapped at high speed around the carrier rod, to which some stick. As they still have sericin (the natural gum that was holding the filaments together in the shape of a cocoon), they get attached to neighboring filaments. When the build up of filament becomes too thick, the silk tube is cut with a knife and removed from the rod. The result is a slit tube 13 to 15 cm long made of criss-crossed filaments of silk. They are great for creating texture in your art work. They are easy to use in silk paper making and make an unusual addition to felt making.


Another page said that you can layer these in a criss crossing fashion and iron them into an interesting silk paper. You can also degum them in a process described in this website.


We will also be giving away a set of dyed/degummed carrier rods this round. If you'd like to win these fun little bits of silk, enter using the widget below:
