fiber goody giveaway and a chance to help

saw this on facebook (thanks DeAnna!) and wanted to share it with everyone.

Pete's Greens, an organic CSA in vermont, suffered a devastating fire recently. Juniper Moon Farm is having a giveaway in an attempt to help. you can enter the giveaway whether you donate or not, but every dollar will help this guy get back on his feet before the growing season! they have raised over $5,000 already. check it out here:

Juniper Moon Farm Giveaway

they are giving away an enormous amount of cool stuff, from books, yarns, fibers.....and again, you do NOT have to donate to enter.

kudos to Juniper Moon Farm for their huge hearts!

Thanks for the tip, Kate. I really need more fiber (4 boxes is just not enough ;) ) so I'm off to help out.

By the way, what's a CSA?

I sure hope those folks can recover quickly!

Katie, I can tell you you were very much missed and very highly spoken of at the RTR. Next time, for sure, huh?

Warm regards,
Cyndi and Stumpy @ RVly Ever After

hiya Meg! in this case a CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.

i am trying to burn through stash while i am snowbound and immobile. it doesn't help that a really great new yarn shop just opened in the city. i got 3 skeins of llama during the year end sale. gorgeous!

Cyndi and Stumpy! that is so sweet for you to say, but i must tell you i pay them to say nice things! Mutt has been particularly glum, he misses his pack. and how that pack has grown! thank-you for all the updates!
