Over on the Kyle William Facebook page there's a little contest! It's super easy to enter... here's how:
1.) Go to the facebook page: www.facebook.com/kylewilliam, "LIKE" it (so that you get all the fun shop updates and pattern releases). Find today's post that talks about the contest.
2.) COMMENT on the post - I'm curious to know your favorite color combo(s) - are you an "all green" kinda person? love the colors of a sunset? the deep crimson of a persimmon? Inquiring minds want to know!
3.) SHARE the contest post with your friends by clicking "SHARE" at the bottom of the post.
Once the fan page reaches 250 "LIKES", one of the people who entered and did all 3 of these things will be randomly selected as the winner. They get either 4oz of hand dyed fiber or a hank of hand dyed yarn custom dyed in the color(s) of their choice.
THEN, they get to select a SECOND person to win - they will get their choice of fiber or yarn custom dyed as well!
The winners will be announced on the Kyle William Facebook page (and the good news might even find its way here!)
It's that simple - so head over the page and like, comment, and share away. While you're online, you can also visit the shop and see some of the goodies that are ready to head home today!
Lots of great things are going on at the Kyle William Studio. First, I'll mention that I have launched the Dye Lab: a collection of hand dyed fibers offered through the shop. This week, I'm releasing 8 art batts - each featuring 2 ounces of beautifully coordinated fibers ready for spinning, felting, or other fun projects. In addition to this, I've been hard at work developing some other colorways that will be part of the line. My goal is to announce shop updates mostly through Facebook and the fan page. "Like" the page at: www.facebook.com/kylewillam.
These art batts take some time to create but are really fun and a true joy to spin. As always, I'm happy to talk with people about custom blends or custom colorways.
A custom order of Polwarth/Silk top
In addition to working to keep the shop full of fiber, I have been doing some custom orders for people interested in larger quantities or special types of top. These projects are fun and I love seeing how people use the fibers. A large shipment of top and yarn just arrived at the studio this week. I'm anxious to dive into the yarns and not only dye some up but also knit with them! They are really quite nice and it will be a lot of fun to share with you in the next few weeks.
In other news, the Caden scarf I designed for Quince & Co. was published with two small errors. At the bottom of my website, you'll find a link to my new errata page which will correct these for you.
Last but not least: more good news! The Kyle William patterns offered in my shop are now all available for instant/digital download!
So that's the big update from here. Thank you to those who have purchased from the shop and for those who are curious about any of my products, I encourage you to give them a try. Like all small businesses, the success of Kyle William depends on your patronage, and I appreciate each and every order and comment!
