Opening Chatter

The donation incentive for February is 8 oz of "Big Girl Pink" fiber from Abstract Fiber.  One bump is an 75/25 blend of BFL and silk.  The other is a 50/50 blend of Merino and tencel.  To be entered into a drawing to win this fiber, just donate $5 or more to the podcast by the end of February.  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 Abstract Fiber here; my review of Abstract Fiber is here.

I'll be at the Madrona Fiber Arts Retreat in Tacoma from February 15-20.  The podcaster meet-and-greet will be on Saturday at 5:00 pm in the Rotunda.  Come see us!

Out for a Spin

Jillian's been spinning some batts from Bricolage Studios.  You can find them on Etsy or at The Spinning Loft.
