You Deserve a Reward!

I think loyal customers should be rewarded, don't you?  So we've developed a Rewards Program at FiberWild!

Scout, the Idea Man
Our first task was to decide just how we would reward our customers.  Scout suggested we give out catnip or dead mice.  But I thought our human customers would prefer "CASH"!  We took a vote among the staff, and cash won.  So here's how it works:

Just shop online, over the phone, or at our store in Galena and you'll earn account credit.  How much?  That depends on how much you spend . . .
  • Earn 5% account credit on orders up to $74.99
  • Earn 10% account credit on orders from $75.00 to $149.99
  • Earn 15% account credit on orders over $150.00 
Your points become active as soon as your items are shipped - usually within three days, and most of the time within 24 hours of placing your order.  You can use your rewards on your very next order - no waiting!

Your points equal money - a penny per point - so 2,549 points equals $25.49.  You can use the points like cash on any online order.  Can't decide what to get?  You can even use your points to buy a gift certificate - treat yourself, or give it to your favorite knitter! 

Want more details?  Check out the Rewards Program page for more information and frequently asked questions.  And then start racking up your rewards!

(And if you'd really rather have catnip and dead mice you can e-mail Scout at  He's starting a petition.)

Happy knitting!  Amy

It's a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

The Connecticut Pumpkin
When is a pumpkin a Great Pumpkin?  When it's hand knit by YOU! 

Your Halloween decorations will stand out with a hand knit, homemade felted pumpkin.  At about eight inches high, it is the perfect size for a table centerpiece or on your front porch.  The Connecticut Pumpkin kit includes the pattern plus just the right amount of the orange and green wool yarn you'll need.

And the best part?  You don't have to pull out all those slimy, stringy pumpkin guts and seeds!  Ewwwwww!

Get Twisted with the KAL Cowl - And save 20% !

I always have fun with Michelle Hunter's Progressive Needles Knit Alongs.  The next KAL is a cowl called Intertwisted - so I'm looking forward to a lot of twists and turns in this one.  But I'm just guessing here, I don't really know.  Nobody knows!  At least not until the first portion of the mystery pattern is revealed at 9 am on Thursday, October 4th.

Save 20% on SimpliWorsted!
I think cowls are sexy and fun.  Who doesn't look good with the soft folds of the hood framing your face?  Michelle promises stitches and techniques designed to expand your knitting skills.  And while she suggests a gauge, it's not really critical.  Gotta love that!

Never done a KAL?  It's easy.  Michelle reveals the pattern in four segments, one each Thursday in October.  Have a question?  No problem.  The pattern includes online video instructions.  It's like having a knitting tutor right by your side.  How much does it cost?  Nothing!  You don't have to register or pay any fee to participate, and you may even win some cool prizes from Skacel. 

You'll need two skeins of SimpliWorstedBonus:  We have over 50 colors of SimpliWorsted to choose from and it's on sale for 20% off!   You'll also need US #10 (6mm) straight or circular needles (any length) and one set of double points, plus stitch holders

Make it for yourself, or get a jump start on your Christmas knitting and make one for a friend! 

Happy Knitting!
