Bet you didn’t expect to hear from me again so soon, eh? Well I’m announcing a contest for the shop today and thought this would be a good place to explain it in depth since other forums only allow 140 characters. ;-) So here it is!

Give Something Back contest!

Contained in that tote bag is a wonderful fiber/yarn related prize for a lucky winner (and you get the bag too)! That lucky winner could be YOU! The prize has at least a $50 value, possibly more depending on how entries go. It might also be adjusted depending on whether the winner is a spinner or a knitter (or maybe both). This contest begins today (November 1st) and will run until December 31st with a winner chosen on Jan. 1, 2012.

So how do you get your chance to win? You can enter in several ways:

Tweet, Plurk, G+, Facebook, Blog, post on Ravelry or find some other way to promote this contest to others. Make sure I see your entry and EACH time your name will be thrown in the hat.

Make a purchase in either the Artfire or Etsy shops from now until Dec. 31st. Do that and your name will be thrown in the hat THREE times.

Do a random act of kindness and send me an email at Zarzuelasfibers [at] gmail [dot] com to tell me about it. What’s a random act of kindness? Something you do for someone that you may not even know without expectation of reward. Pay for the coffee of the person behind you at the drive through. Give someone you don’t know a gift. Donate to a food pantry. The possibilities are endless! Do something like this and tell me about it and I’ll put your name in the hat FIVE times.

Why am I doing this? It’s been a great year for Zarzuela’s Fibers and for me. Without your support none of what I’ve accomplished would be possible. The best way I know to express my gratitude is to give something back to you. And if we can spread that good will throughout the fiber community and beyond, what could be better? This is the time of year to look back and remember just how lucky we are and give something back where we can. Won’t you join me?

Wishing you and yours a spectacular end of 2011 and beyond!

    What a lovely giveaway! – and glad I found your shop with such a lot of beautiful fibers and yarns.
    Want lots of entries… so I have put on my facebook wall, purchased one skein of gorgeous sock yarn from your artfire shop, and as rak I have gifted my patterns to ten random persons of Ravelry (hope they will love them).

    Have a great day!
