Happy Etsyversary - Prizes Totaling $900!

This Easter Sunday marked our 3rd blissful year on etsy. Which we celebrate each year with the opportunity to win some amazing prizes - and this is our biggest giveaway yet!



How it works:

1. You get one free entry into our drawing here, just by leaving a comment.
2. You get another entry for every item you purchase from April 9th until April 19th.
a. Yep if you buy 20 things, you get 20 entries into the drawing
b. Also, if you buy a club membership, you get as many entries as months in the membership (ie. a 6 month Sock Yarn Cinema purchase = 6 entries).


Oh yes, and we'll have discounts and other deals that change with my daily whims. But you can count on 10-30% off everything in the shop (except subscriptions).




Just a note - I know not everyone knits or spins but sometimes does the other exclusively, so the first name drawn will get to choose between the two first prizes, then the next name drawin will have the option of taking the one that's left or passing for the next prize, and so on and so forth. Choices - aren't they great?!



The Prizes:


A Year of Knitting (Value: $325)




12 Skeins of gorgeous hand-dyed yarn in a brand new Namaste Monroe Bag in Eggplant. (Skeins will be selected from available stock at the time of the drawing.)






A Year of Fiber (Value: $300)


12 braids and/or batts of gorgeous hand-dyed fiber in a brand new Namaste Monroe bag in Lime.






Ball Winder and Swift (Value: $120)

Every hand-dyed yarn lover's dream! No more hand winding those skeins.







Knitter's Library Starter (Value: $100)





5 of my all time favorite knitting books to start a library or add to your current one:


A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker
Luxury Yarn One-Skein-Wonders by Judith Durant
Knitting Without Tears by Elizabeth Zimmerman
Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick
Getting Started Knitting Socks by Anne Budd







$50 Gift Certificate to Knit it Up (Value: $50)

Use it immediately, save it for a rainy day, or gift it to a very lucky fiber friend!







So what are you waiting for?! Leave a comment with your email address or etsy username to get your first entry, then hop on over to the shop to find some great deals on stuff you actually want and get even more entries into the drawing!
(Sale starts April 9th, but all purchases between now and the 19th will qualify you for entries into the drawing.)

You'd think I'd learn after three years - every time I promise myself I'm going to be good, you come up with your Etsyversary sale. Well, falling off the wagon again.

3 years on Etsy. Congratulation!! Prizes look fantastic. I've been dreaming of my first Namaste for several months now and haven't yet taken the plunge. Maybe I'll get lucky.
