Calendar Update

Well we are getting closer and closer...I have all the patterns formatted and just waiting for all of them to be proofread and the contributors to sign off on them and then they will be available to everyone. Some info, it has been mentioned before but I will publish it again for those that may have missed it the first time.

The cost will be $16 to download (available on line), Paypal, Visa, checks or money orders this year.

OR $22 for a printed copy to be mailed to you

25 Patterns in all this year so it is a bit more manageable

There will be a Yahoo group initiated for those that prefer not to install on their harddrive. There is no charge, just let me know when you purchase the calendar if you want to be a part of the group and I will send you an invitation.

A rough calculation on when it will be available will be the end of September. A lot of work goes into one of these.

There will be some feebies associated with the calendar that we are REALLY excited about.

1. Initially there will be 5 raffle packets given away, this will include one free printed calendar, 3 skeins of yarn and 4 stitch markers. This will be done the first week it goes on sale.

2. To kick off the sale of the calendar, we will be offering one new free pattern in celebration of putting our calendar up for sale. Where can you find that pattern you can find it at our friends website, Elmore-Pisgah, better known as Peaches & Creme. They will be sponsoring all of the yarn we are giving away and these people are awesome people to do business with. I have been buying my yarn there for several years and you couldn't ask for a better company to do business with. You can see all their great yarn at

3. Starting the second week there will be a raffle every week, giving away 3 skeins of yarn to someone who purchased a calendar that week. So if it is 10 or 200 people who bought calendars for any given week you will have a chance to win some yarn. All the names will be put in a hat and we will have one lucky winner of yarn. This will be done up to Christmas week. check out the yarn I received for the give-away:

Gosh when I received it I thought I had died and went to heaven...rows and rows of yarn WOOHOO!!!

We haven't shown all the photos of the patterns you will be getting in the calendar, I have given you some photos whenever I have done an update but finishing out the year, in the month of December, one of the cloths is a different looking tree:

This was a bit tedious to figure out and get it right but it turned out OK. It is Adapted from the Alternating Lace stitch – found in the “365 Stitches A Day Perpetual Calendar".

We hope you will enjoy what we have put together for you this year and I will give more updated information the first part of next week.
