As you know, it’s our Seventh Anniversary and we’re celebrating! We did a contest for a wonderful knitting bag from Offhand Designs last week and we drew a name. The bag is going off to Cathy T in Nebraska. Congratulations! I know you will enjoy it!
We’ve sure had fun growing over the past seven years, thanks to all of you and your wonderful orders and business. One of our favorite things is to come in in the morning and see just what we’re sending off to your house that day. You’ve inspired us with lots and lots of projects and ideas, and we have lists full of projects that we want to do, because of you. I know those lists will continue to grow in the years to come. We love sharing knitting/crocheting/weaving/spinning with you, and will continue to add to our fiber-y offerings here at The Loopy Ewe.
We’re also looking forward to sharing fabric for sewing and quilting with you this fall! And I have a sneaky suspicion that I will develop a really long list of projects to make with fabric, too. Several of us here at Loopy are quilters and sewists, and I know many of you are multi-craftual and make beautiful things with fabric, too. We’re excited to open the fabric side of The Loopy Ewe in the near future. As you know, we’ve recently added on to our space here, just so we could expand into fabric. We’ve started getting bolts of fabric in, and have so many orders that are scheduled to arrive over the next few months. I have had fun at the last two Quilt Market shows. As soon as we’re ready for fabric orders (hopefully sometime in early September), we will let you know. And of course the Loopy Rewards Program extends to all of those fabric purchases as well. Exciting, right?
We do have another Anniversary Blog Contest for you today! We are giving away some fun knitting books that I brought back from Market this summer and saved just for you. We will pick two winners and each one will get a set of several books for their knitting library. Would you like to enter to win? Just leave a comment below and tell us what your favorite cake flavor is (in case we get a Happy Loopy Anniversary Cake. Wish we could share a piece with you!) My favorite is white cake with chocolate frosting. How about you?
