Christmas Advent Calendar

I’m actually super impressed and excited that I’m down to my last Christmas Advent Calendar in my Online Shop ❤️❤️ It’s always hard to see how something like this will be received once rolled out! I decided to focus on quality and not quantity. While creating a Calendar I would love for myself! While I love Prairie Dye Studio products❤️ I also love products from other Makers too! 


 
I’ve decided to expand the single skein Project to incorporate a shawl kit! There is one left on a Black Nep Tweed Base in my Online Shop! The Black Nep Tweed Base is basically a tweed yarn with black bits of tweed in it! This is how the base looks! I had a few extra skeins and decided to dye them up in a simple grey colorway called Silver Bell! 



To give you the details on what’s included in the Christmas Advent Calendar:

I understand not everyone wants a calendar full of yarn or a calendar full of notions so I wanted to give full disclosure of what’s included. So you can decide if it’s right for you!


-1 Project Bag

-1 Notions Bag

-1 Black Nep Tweed shawl kit including pattern

-6, 20g skeins of yarn by Alberta Indie Dyers. Each Dyer has contributed 1 - 20g Mini

-6, 20g skeins of coordinating solid yarn for the Indie Dyed Minis! 

-1 full skein of Worsted weight yarn

-1 pattern for a mini skein Project

-7 Notions of various price points

-6 of my favourite items from a few of my favourite companies and Indie Makers❤️ 


The six fabulous indie dyers contributing minis are Sea Turtle Fibre Arts, Haven Fibre Arts, Boss Lady Yarn Co, Fibre Goddess, Allison Barnes Yarn, Gingersnap!!

 

Available in my Online Shop until Nov 15 !!

The indie dyers contributing to this Advent Calendar are Sea Turtle Fibre Arts, Boss Lady Yarn Co, Allison Barnes Yarn, Haven Fibre Arts, Gingersnap, and Fibre Goddess! They have each dyed up a mini to go in this calendar and would these would make a kick ass pair of Christmas Sock by Indie Dyers from Alberta ❤️ I will also be dyeing up 6 coordinating semi solid minis to help you mix and match. 


Happy Shopping Tomorrow πŸ˜„


Christmas Advent Calendars will be Available Nov 1 @ Noon MST

If we’re being honest here, originally I wasn’t going to do a Christmas Advent Calendar πŸ˜‚ I have never been particularly interested in advent calendars by any 1 Dyer and I am not interested in having 24 mini skeins for a Calendar. So I shy’d away from it. Although about a week before the Calgary Fibre Shindig I started thinking about what I wanted and didn’t want in an Advent Calendar. This was still in its infancy stages and I knew I didn’t want 24 mini skeins, I knew I didn’t want it all being yarn (bc my stash is CRAZY!!), I didn’t want it all Notions, and it would be nice to have a couple full skeins for projects. Then synchronicity happened. I had a few customers ask if I was doing an Advent Calendar! Then the planning commenced! I contacted 6 Indie Dyers to see if they would be interested in dyeing up some minis for the Calendar and every single one said yes! Then I figured out a palette that wasn’t traditional Christmas and everything came together! 





So behold! Below is the Product Description of the Christmas Advent Calendars! 


πŸŽ„Christmas Advent Calendars will be listed Nov 1 at Noon MSTπŸŽ„ There will be 6 Calendars available and they will be priced at $329 each. Free shipping applies to them ❤️ They will be listed until Nov 15 or until they sell out! There will be 25 days of treats per each advent calendar and below is more details:


This years theme for the Prairie Dye Studio Christmas Advent Calendar is an Unconventional Christmas! No traditional Christmas colors here!

❤️ Customer Appreciation ❤️

I’ve been home for a few days after the Calgary Shindig and I’ve been decompressing a bit! It’s been a busy year with lots of growth for my little home business πŸ˜„ So much so that I decided that the Shindig was the last Market I’ll be doing this year. I’ll be relaxing a bit and spending some quality time with my kiddos until market season next year. Don’t get me wrong, there will still be dyeing/ sewing and creating  πŸ˜‰ but new product won’t be introduced until next year, most likely! 




To show my appreciation to all my customers, I’ve decided to offer free shipping for all Canada and USA orders over $150 until December 31, 2017! No coupon code is nessessary jut choose free shipping during your checkout! 


Happy Shopping while my Online Inventory lasts πŸ˜‰❤️

My Next Market - Prairie Fibre Festival!!

My next market is coming up soon!! My Online Shop is now closed, as I'll be in full prep mode finalizing details for the Prairie Fibre Festival! There are lots of little details that need to be finalized this week for the PFF and for the Prairie Dye Studio Booth, so I will be busy! 

I've been answering lots of questions regarding the Prairie Fibre Festival the last couple weeks! 



One of the amenities that I've offered all that attend is the option to attend the Free Mini Courses! I've posted the list of the courses in Facebook and Ravelry and if you haven't been following them, you should! Specifically the Facebook and Instagram Accounts! I've been sharing so much fibre porn from all the talented vendors, its amazing! I am so blessed to have so many talented Indie Makers of the Fibre Arts participating in this event ❤️❤️ The Fibre Arts is a community and a team! To get such support for this event, I feel very, very blessed ❤️❤️ 

Not to mention, the super cute PFF Button Pins that are available for the first 100 attendees! 



There will be giveaways for the attendees that will be drawn every hour! 

Also! Be sure to pop into the Cranker Booth!! They have knitting machines and you can ask any questions you may have about knitting machines! This is a real treat because to buy a knitting machine can be a real investment. So to have the opportunity to ask questions, is to decide if it's really right for you! 



Also, when your heading in say hi to my husband! He's working the door πŸ˜‰ He's going to be wearing the most awesome Wool Security shirt πŸ‘❤️❤️ 

See you on Sept 24 ❤️❤️
