The fiber community gives back

One of the many things I’m grateful for is being part of the fiber community. While meeting a new group of people can be intimidating, I pretty much always feel comfortable when I start talking to fellow knitters.

Inspired by this welcoming feeling, I’m holding another special giveaway to help give back.

If you buy from any Indie Untangled vendor, or from the post-Rhinebeck pop-up through Tuesday, November 28, you will be entered to win an Indie Untangled Rhinebeck tote bag filled with Rhinebeck Trunk Show swag. I will also donate $25 to the charity of the winner’s choice.

To enter, just forward your receipt from your outside purchase to If you purchase from the Indie Untangled post-Rhinebeck pop-up during this time, you will automatically be entered. The winner will be chosen on Friday, December 1.

Good luck, and enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving!
