The Great Canadian Wool-A-Long!
The Great Canadian Wool-a-long has wrapped up for 2022! A huge thank you to all of the participants, helpers, wool providers, prize donors, and coupon code providers. Thanks to all of you, this has been a very fun event and I am so chuffed about the enthusiasm for Canadian wool!
A list of the prize winners has now been published - congratulations! You can find the complete list of prizes and winners here! Please follow the instructions at the top of the linked page to claim your prize.
I'm hoping this event will run again next year, so if you're a Canadian wool or fibre provider who would like to add your name to the provider list, you may do so at any time! The link is here.
We also have a few zoom meet-up presentations to catch up. My apologies for this - I had no idea that I would get so sick in September, and I am so grateful for everyone's understanding. I still would like to have Longway Homestead, Digits and Threads, and Revolution Wool Company do a presentation, so please watch Instagram for when those dates are announced.
For the next while, I'll be turning my attention to moving both our home and business, so this page will remain up but won't be updated until I'm certain if the #gcwal2023 will happen. However, all of the participants will receive a link to a survey that will help me craft next year's event, if there is a desire for it. One thing I do know: I'll need help. While this event was a lot of fun, it was also far more work than I anticipated, and in order to make it happen, I'll be asking for volunteers to help with social media, chat threads, organizing the prize, coupon codes, and wool providers lists, and that sort of thing. My hope is to move the #gcwal2023 off of my website to a dedicated website and include some sort of forum/chat platform there so it can all happen in one spot, but that's a dream at this point. Still, if you have thoughts or ideas, please do let me know in the survey!
Thanks again, friends, and thank you so much for supporting Canadian-grown wool and fibre!
