~From Cristy Ray - I am the Superintendent for the Children's Tent at the Estes Park Wool Market on June 8-9. I took over this position last year, and am working very hard to have hands-on activities to introduce children to our wonderful fiber world. I am looking for donations of fiber and yarns for the demonstrations and the take home crafting activities. The consumable materials go quickly, and with Spring Cleaning around the corner, I thought that maybe some of your viewers might have some old acrylic, or old funky colors of wool that they might like to find a home for. People can reach me at or by private message - cristyray on Plurk and Ravelry.

~dragonfly7673 (Vicki) from the Dragonfly Soars podcast is fundraising for her son’s friend who’s sister has Cystic Fibrosis. The family is participating in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Great Strides walk in Madison, WI. More details here: And if you donate and let Vicki know, you’ll be entered to win one of several prizes including 2 of my patterns. Deadline to donate is May 15th.

~We are open to receiving products for review (yarn, project bags, needles, patterns, books, etc.) and/or hosting giveaways on our podcast. We're also open to having show sponsors. If you and/or your company are interested, please either email us at or contact C.C. on Ravelry via private message.
