Welcome back! Thanks for joining us for Episode 5.
This week Dana and Kristi are discussing their SAFF adventures and purchases. Due to the volume of SAFF related chatter, we'll only be quickly touching on WIPs and FOs.
We are super excited to announce our very first giveaway! We picked up a lovely skein of Shalimar Yarns SAFF 2016 colorway "Sassy French Broad" on the Equus base. Details on how to enter the giveaway are given in the episode.
All of our show notes are given below, with information and links to what we discussed in this episode. Let us know if you can't find any information you need.
As always, we would love to hear from you! Did you go to SAFF and participate in some yarn gluttony yourself? If you weren't able to attend, were there any vendors you heard about that you'd like to check out? Is there a topic you would like us to discuss next? Are there any excellent tips or items we should check out? Please feel free to leave a comment, contact us on Ravelry (either by message or in the group), or drop us a note through the Contact page.
We hope you enjoy the episode. Please stay tuned for more crafty goodness, coming to your earbuds soon!
