Opening Chatter

The donation incentive for the months of November and December is two bumps (8 oz.) of an 80/20 blend of Merino and silk in the colorway "Ravenswood" from Into the Whirled.  To be entered into a drawing to win this fiber, just donate $5 or more to the podcast by the end of December.  There's a donate button in the left-hand column of the page that will take you right to PayPal.  You can find more goodies from Into the Whirled here; my review of Into the Whirled is here.

I'll be at the Madrona Fiber Arts Retreat in Tacoma from February 15-20.
