This Valentines Day, let’s celebrate our fiber friends! ⁣

Many of us got into the fiber arts because of our love of pretty yarn and all the things we could make with it. But we stayed for the friendships. They’re the friends who don’t roll their eyes when you decide to drop $40 on yet another skein of hand-dyed — in fact, they’ll buy one too so you can save on shipping — and who will literally give you the shawl off their back when you’re going through a rough patch. ⁣

To celebrate our fiber friendships, I’m offering a B2G2 deal: buy two Fiber Friends Selfie T-shirts — one for you and one for a friend — and get two Fiber Friends Selfie enamel pins free! ⁣
