Our Chaos!!!

We've been trying our best to get everything organized and ready to go to Houston in a week!! We're testing out all the new product we're getting in and trying to get models ready to show. Today has been a fun day of play!!

I made this the other day out of Joel Dewberry fabric and following an Indygo Junction pattern.

Look at our mess of boxes of inventory! Can't even get to the radio right now to listen to some music.

Look at all our lovely clutter!! Should have it out of the upstairs tomorrow!

Karla's been playing with the new Glimmer Mist that just came in. These are all the tags to show all the colors.

This was Jan's project. Mixing a whole bunch of beads.
Hopefully should have some more pics shortly. Will also try my best to take photos during Houston and post them daily!!

Help Support the Troops & Houston Update

We've been working like crazy preparing everything for Houston! We have 2 of the 3 workshop kits complete and are quite happy with them. Thanks to some generous donations the other one is almost complete as well. The show merchandise has been arriving at record pace as well so forgive us the clutter in the shop as we sort things out. Things are starting to come together nicely but we are starting to get nervous about leaving the end of next week.

Thanks to all the people that have helped out/are going to help out in the preparation for this. We never could've done this without you guys!!


**Help Support the Troops** With the holidays fast approaching many troops are away from their families. Any small token of our appreciation means a lot to them. A good friend of mine is a 2nd Lieutenant currently stationed in Iraq. Previous care packages I've sent are split amongst the platoon and affect many troops. If you would like to donate items for care packages or simply write a letter to be included with them please bring the items to Fiber on a Whim no later than Wednesday Oct. 24th. I'll ship off all items on the 25th which allows plenty of time for them to get there by Thanksgiving. If you need any ideas you can find them on this website: Keep in mind that these packages will be split among men and women.
