New Shareholder Benefits

by Susan on May 26, 2009

We love our shareholders- oh yes we do! Without our shareholders this farm, website, lambcam, community would not exist. It’s crazy, but 100% true. Our shareholders are the glue that holds this entire circus together. 

And we want to express our gratitude to you, our shareholders, with a couple of little thank yous. First of all, from this day forth, all shareholders will receive a 10% discount on everything you purchase through the website, at our on-farm yarn shop or at our farmers market stands. On the website shareholders can enter the promo code: sabine to receive your discount. When buying in person, just be sure to let us know you are a shareholder so we can give you your discount.

You can use you discount on yarn, t-shirts, dye, our Hand-Dyeing Workshops, everything we sell on our website. (Discount only applies to orders placed on or after May 26th, 2009 and is only for shareholders)

The other new ‘Shareholder’s Only” benefit is even more exciting. Starting in June, we will be featuring the work of one indie dyer a month here on the blog. I’ll post an interview with the dyer with lots of pictures of his or her dye studio and works in progress. Then shareholders will have the opportunity to order an exclusive colorway, designed just for Fiber Farm shareholders!

Some of the dyers we feature will be well-known to you; others will be up-and-coming fiber artists that we think are about to make it big. In either case, we’ve chosen dyers who’s work we know you will go gaga for.

Our first featured dyers are the lovely ladies of The Unique Sheep. Laura and Kelly are hard at work coming up with two exclusive Fiber Farm colorways now. Stay tuned for photos and details.

We are so excited to offer these two small tokens of our thanks to our shareholders. Y’all not only make this possible, you make it worth doing. Your support for us has been overwhelming! Thank you for everything you do. 

If you aren’t a shareholder and would like to become one, we still have shares in our Fall 2009 clip available.

That is so awesome, thank you!

I love this photo! Have you ever thought of offering photos for sale? I just moved into a new condo and have miles of walls to cover….
I’m really looking forward to indie dyer interviews. Thanks for such a great blog!

Susie, you are THE BEST!!!! Everything about this post is so wonderful, starting with that most adorable photo. And I absolutely adore The Unique Sheep. It’s hard to keep my promises to myself with this kind of subversive enticement!

15 Susan aka reddirt May 27, 2009 at 6:35 am

oooooooh this is so exciting! I can’t wait to see all the dyers wares.

A question…this morning in the photos there was a picture of a little one with a broken leg, and then I saw one of that same baby wearing a diaper and resting on a cushion in the house. Who was that sweetie?

16 Rona Thau May 27, 2009 at 1:49 pm

applause!

17 Jessica Le May 27, 2009 at 10:49 pm

18 Liz McRenynolds May 28, 2009 at 6:10 am

Thank you, can’t wait to see those new colorways!

19 margaret sandercock May 28, 2009 at 6:19 am

I would like you to send more emails. For instance, when you post the time to get yarn shares dyed. When you post the availability of yarn from a special dyer…that knid of thing.

20 MargaretG May 28, 2009 at 7:08 am

You always treat us so well. I love Unique Sheep and can’t wait to see the others. Something else to look forward to. Thanks.

Susan,

The heather is really pretty. I’d probably knit my first sweater for myself (have only knit a couple of baby sweaters).

I like Cosimo, also #30 aran wrap cardigan, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/30-aran-wrap-cardigan
but I could see you in Maxwell, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/maxwell.

Thanks for the opportunity to win you lovely yarn!
Valerie

24 Julie Brooks aka Lulubelle May 28, 2009 at 11:28 am
