One of the things I love about my “day job” as a journalist is spreading the news and telling people’s stories. This week, I get to introduce you to several artisans who are brand new to Indie Untangled and are also fascinating, talented folks.
One of these dyers is Sandra of Duck Duck Wool. Last year, she became very popular among my knitting friends, and she was recently profiled in a wonderful Washington Post story on DC-area artisans (it’s so refreshing to see knitting and dyeing getting some great press). Sandra just reopened her Etsy shop after a much-needed spring break and I am so thrilled she chose to share the news on Indie Untangled.
Meg of Atelier Yarn has been busy since posting to the marketplace last week. This Aussie dyer has updated her Etsy shop with three new colorways, including Christmas Grey, pictured above (no, it’s not Christmastime Down Under, but winter is coming). She’s also offering 25% off orders of $50 or more with the coupon code SUGARDIP2014. AND, she’s having a giveaway.
You might be waiting a little while for George R.R. Martin’s sixth A Song of Ice and Fire book, but the next installment of the Dashing Dachs “Game of Thrones” yarn club ships out next month.
I’m generally a monogamous knitter, but even I could use some more project bags. If you’re in the same situation, check out the bags from Kicks and Giggles Shop. Get 10% off with the coupon code UNTANGLED through April 30.
Hannah of Fastenation Studio is the newest Indie Untangled button maker, and she has more than 200 polymer clay button sets ready to ship. She also takes custom orders. (Those elephant buttons are definitely going on my next baby sweater.) Through May 9, get 10% all orders from her website and Etsy shop with the code IndieUntangled10.
Heather of Wolowikranch is new to both Indie Untangled and Etsy. She opened her shop in March, and has plenty of hand-painted and kettle-dyed Merino top for sale. She also blogs about dyeing, and about life with her family.
Get more of Mavis, a luxurious fingering-weight Merino/silk blend from Dirty Water DyeWorks that now comes in 113-gram, 434-yard skeins. Stephanie is also having another giveaway starting today. Check out her blog for more details.
