Phat Fiber

Last Saturday I sat at my computer at 5 minutes before 10 a.m. EST, hitting the refresh button until three boxes finally showed up. I clicked on the one that said "Just Stitches" then on add to shopping cart, then checkout, and confirm purchase. Paid with paypal -and whew! In just a few seconds I scored a Phat Fiber box. In another minute they were all gone! What is a Phat Fiber box? You can read all about it here. This was the first time I ever attempted to get a box, and I got lucky! Now - all that was left was the wait for it to arrive in the mail. That happened this morning when the mailman brought the mail to my door (that only happens when there is a package too big to fit in the mailbox - those are my favorite days!) Do you want to know what was in it? (warning, if you are not a knitter you probably won't get too excited about this!)
The box - see all the cute stamps on it?


On top - the popcorn bag (the theme of this month's box was "At The Fair") with cards from the contributors in it, plus a rose quartz stitch marker from Page's Beaded Designs, a felted "P" keychain from Calizna Designs and a mystery beaded thing that I have to go to wwwmemarcienee.com to find out what it is.


If any of the contributors see their cards here, I will be paying a visit to your Etsy Shop soon! Now a look under that striped tissue paper!



Fibery samples from Etsy shop contributors -





Including some other goodies like jelly beans, candy corn, and hand lotion (from The Spinning Sheep).
The next box drop will be in September.......
Off to play with my new toys.

Awesome box! Glad to see you got one of my Prize Goldfish samples - I'm off to skein up and soak the full size version now. Have fun!

I got a box a couple of months ago. Gave the fiber to my sister since she loves spinning and put all the small skeins in a water bottle on my desk. LOL. It is very lovely and I suppose someday I will do something with them. I did buy some yarn from one or two of the shops. It is a good way to see before buying. I think those who spin probably get the better end of the deal
