New Postage Option & Instagram Winner Announced!

Hi everyone!!!

I am currently trialing an option for $3 surface mail no tracking for small items like knitting needles and crochet hooks.  By choosing this option you accept that this item cannot be traced and if lost by Australia Post, Fiberific! is not responsible for replacing your order. So while the option is there, I personally prefer the Flat rate $8 post option as it is trackable. This choice is now yours.

2017 Here I come!!!

2017 is a going to be a year of new beginnings. I plan on leaving the Casa De Fiberific on more occasions! So first Cab off the Rank is Caffeinated Crafters.  I realised that one of the big reasons I don’t go out is there is nowhere sort of local to me that has a night time Stitch and bitch kinda group.. So I have bitten the bullet so to speak and have started one!

See you next week!

Christmas Shut Down!

Hi Guys!

Well Christmas is upon us again!

The webstore be closed from December 24th 2016 at Midday until January 20 2017.
There will still be some YouTube videos, facebook posts and tweets and insta’s going on and even a few Live chats too!

This year has been a year of major change for Fiberific! with the beginning of the YouTube Channel. And attending the larger scale events like Craft and Quilt Fair. And changes in my own personal life too, like my baby finishing primary school and getting ready for the adventure ahead that is high school.

Next year will be bringing a few more changes, new yarn lines, New events to attend, and a new look to the website too…

 

Merry Christmas!!

The week that was.. not even over yet

Well this week has been full of fun and chaos! Trying to keep focused on your fibery job when it has been over 30 degrees C everyday is hard!

Monday, I used the random generator thingy to choose the 2 winners for the wonderful Daenerys Shawl kits, The Daenerys shawl is one of those wonderful patterns that it looks harder than it is!! And you can sit and watch the world go by while knitting it. I thoroughly enjoyed knitting it up! If you want to make your own Daenerys shawl, click here to go the pattern on Dominique Trad’s Ravelry Page!  Then its time to record the video for Tuesday! I set everything up, takes a good hour or so.. get my YouTube face on, and sit in my chair.. just as I hit record, literally at that precise moment, my neighbour fires up his lawn mower, it is 10.30am and 30 degrees on a Monday, who does that.. so I can’t record.. its too loud and I have to wait.. without mussing up my hair or makeup… Finally he is done at 11.30 and I hit record!  Movie Magic is made and this is the result…

Fiberific! Episode #31 – In this video I discuss which spindles I think  are good for beginners, how to choose fluff, and a quick introduction to using your new spindle… I also share my favourite spindle makers!! Click the Pic if you want to watch it!

Tuesday is always a fun day of social media, hanging out checking my YouTube, Instagram and Facebook! Also it seems to be the day I get most housework done.. although it was another scorcher, and I did hang about in my house.. as I had been a big sook, and put the Aircon on.

Wednesday this week I had a special visitor! One of the people who took my Double Ended Crochet Class, I did while at the Majacraft Magic Camp in Roturua, New Zealand,  earlier in the year. We chatted about houses that are filled with fluff (mine looks like a yarn/ spinning store was loaded into a truck, backed into my house and then exploded) I wish I was joking. After my guest drove off into the heat, I got on with the business that is Thursday Quickies!! Its a video series, that I have started… I was only interrupted by the courier and that is OK!

As usual these are just my tips, you may have others! You may not like my tips.. These tips are valid for knitting, crochet, spinning and weaving, at least a few of them anyway. Click the Pic if you want to watch it.

And then Thursday was a day filled with opening the Chiaogoo box up and holy dooley! When I decided to order some big stuff… it was not in my brain as big… like 25mm circular needle, they are HUGE!!! So if you need some big needles, or hooks, I small have a selection!

First Step towards the Horizon

That sounds dramatic doesn’t it.. too much? Maybe.. but then I am a bit of a drama llama.  Over the coming months there will be some changes happening at Fiberific!, nothing bad, nothing too scary, at least for you guys.. But the first thing is, I will be increasing my YouTube uploads to twice per week, Tutorial Tuesdays, and all the other bits in on Thursdays… I will be monitoring and tweaking how this goes, so there maybe movement.. I also planning a knit a long.. so keep your eyes peeled… in the mean time you can watch Today’s video on how we can all support our friends and local businesses without spending a cent 🙂 Clicking my picture will take you to the video or you can click here… https://youtu.be/HTCoJcBiofM
