Tour de Fleece Week #1 Giveaway: Each week, Steph and Stacie will draw from the team thread on the TdF forum. This week, we drew from posts 1-258. The random winner is XCOMom. Congratulations, Stephanie! Contact Stacie with your information so she can send you your prize. Next week, we will do another random drawing, this time starting with post 259.

Announcing Tour de Fleece Giveaway — Finished Yarn: We will start a thread in the Must Stash group for team members to post pictures of FINISHED YARN that they spun during TdF. We plan on drawing from this thread every week, using the same procedure as the chat thread. At the end of the Tour, we will draw again from ALL of the finished yarn posts for a grand prize! Multiple submissions are accepted, and no chatter please! At least some of the spinning/plying needs to happen during the tour — if you are finishing up old spinning projects, that’s fine. Try and be fair and honest. We just want to see your spinning!

  1. I’m setting up to ply yarn that I drop spindled during the course of the last two Tours. I’m hoping that watching you two talk spinning will help me! I haven’t plied in 3 years. I’m not much of a dedicated spinner. Still trying to sort it all out.

    • What are you talking about, not dedicated? You’re setting out to finish a long term project, which many of us would gladly ignore rather than finish. You can do it! We’ll cheer you on. 🙂
