spinning giveaway! take home some maude!

I'm giving away a handmade drop spindle—handcrafted in Vermont—already wound up with my hand-spun yarn from Maude (as well as extra roving). It's everything you need to learn to drop spin! My friend and fellow spinner, Andrea, made a couple of these spindles for the Wool 101 Workshop for me, and hand-stained them as well with a vintage barn-red color. They are wonderful, and they are sturdy buggers with hook attachments on both ends. With the help of Youtube, books, and spinning clubs you'll be making yarn in no time, from the mother of all miserable, old, ewes herself. I'll throw in a signed book too!

Here is how the Giveaway works: All you need to do to enter is tell a friend, coworker, stranger, anyone about Cold Antler Farm and then post who you told here in the comments section of this post. Just write who you shared CAF with and leave some sort of name I can holler at you with. You can send an email to the new guy at work who think chickens are cool, or you can write on the bathroom wall of your local Watering Hole*. A comment is randomly selected and the winner gets a mailed gift and a signed paperback of Made From Scratch. Neat!

Winner will be picked Monday Night!

*Please do not vandalize. I kid. I'm a kidder.

Oddly enough, I told one of my neighbors about both your book (the first one) and your blog today when she asked about our chickens. Our barred rock was singing to the treetops about how wonderful she was for laying another egg, and my neighbor heard her for the first time. Nothing like an urban chicken for that first "what the heck?" moment of the day.

I took a new friend from WY to the VT Sheep and Fiber Show and we both took a beginning spinning class. Needless to say, we are both hooked. I also showed her your blog, knowing that the fact that you started out in her neck of the woods would interest her. She is going to get your books as soon as she gets back. I would love to be able to send her a VT made spindle to commemorate her time with us, and roving from Maude - well, that would just make a perfect gift. Thank you, Jenna, for everything!

I have a signature at the bottom of my emails. I usually have some kind of quote, tip, or something of the like. I change it up every now and then. After your post "pour water into the bag", this was my signature for several weeks

"They should really brew a farmers coffee, none of the store bought stuff is strong enough to make up for rain-soaked faux-electrician work: just pour water into the bag and chew." Jenna Woginrich

Hee hee, I was telling people about you before you even suggested it.

My mother is always hearing about you and CAF, my kids love to see the pictures of the animals AND (as I may have mentioned before) Gibson has the same last name as me. I am completely infatuated with you and CAF, and have been since I first read your book a few years ago. I know you said the post will be picked at random, but I really, REALLY hope it's me. :)

Good Morning Jenna,
I'm Julie, Treehuggers Kitchen's Mom. I do hear about you and the antics on your farm quite often. You have been a tremendous inspiration to my daughter. Angela told me about your contest, and suggested I drop you a note. I have wanted to spin for many years, but life and finances kept getting in the way. I would love to be your "chosen one"! I received 10-15 lbs of raw llama fleece from a friend last year, and have yet to start processing it. It's sort of intimidating, and I have no idea where to start! Your nice drop spindle with the beautiful wool and book would be a great beginning point! Have a wonderful week-end!

But please, don't enter me in the giveaway!!! I won't use the spindle, and don't think anyone I know would use it, so make sure it goes to someone who'll put it to work.

I told him about your blog..."I think you will like reading about her...". He is very excited about "Nob", his dog and looks forward to training him to herd. My wife would love your book as a copy to keep and share. I think I would be the first male spinner I know if I got the drop spinner.

I've been reading for a while and I've recently moved to Japan with my hubby and two little ones, so I'm taking in country life vicariously, having moved from country life back to the bustling city. Your blog keeps me connected to dreams of return to the joys of rural living. I've linked you on my blog before and will again!

I just told my friend Kate about your blog. I read it every day over my morning coffee, excellent inspiration.

Good morning Jenna, I have followed your blog for about two years and read all your old posts, its a ritual for me to check out your blog every weekend with a cup of joe. I have emailed my friend Roman to check out your blog for a chance to win your book. I live in rural Nova Scotia, Canada. We raised 24 meat birds and 3 turkeys and did all the work ourselves. One turkey weighed in at 28 lbs after 4 mos. Beautiful birds. Have a great day, TTFN...Sue

Hi Jenna: I've entered you into my blogroll list on my blogsite: hope that qualifies me for a chance at the draw. If I can't figure out how the handspin I will use the rovings to make thrummed mittens - a regional handknit mitten native to Northern New England and Nova Scotia.

I told my neighbor and fellow chicken lover about your blog. She and I have just received 25 chicks each and we will be raising them together. I know she will get such a kick out of your blog.
Thanks for sharing your world with all us wannabes.
