New to YOU Make-a-long!!!

Hello friends!!

I am SOOOOO EXCITED to announce this epic make-a-long that I am hosting to celebrate the New Year! 

I had the idea to create a make-a-long that would inspire you to do something new. A new craft, a new technique, a new pattern that you've been wanting to try, something that would get you out of your comfort zone. I think it's so important to learn new things as we get older. When I began knitting I always chose a project that would introduce me to a new technique. I wanted to learn something every time I made something new. After 10 years of knitting, I find myself NOT doing this! I have found a comfort level and have avoided some projects that have a technique that I am not familiar with and I wanted to change that.

I also love to bring people together. The maker community is so strong and supportive so why not include all of you and some of my favorite podcasters and makers??? I reached out to a few of my maker friends and we are so excited to host this make-a-long. 

Hosts and links to their spaces on the web:
Just One N Podcast (Liz Zimmerman)
Earthtones Girl (Denise)

Here are the details:

Try something new! This includes all fiber related crafts:
knitting, crochet, weaving, embroidery, yarn dyeing, spinning, rug hooking, punch needle, felting, sewing, etc. The possibilities are endless! 

Start date: January 1, 2019
End date: Valentine's Day 2019
(Projects do not need to be complete to be eligible for prizes.
The point is to try something new!)

How to enter:
Use the #newtoyoumal on instagram
Post in the Arrow Acres Farm Ravelry page thread

We will award one random grand prize with donations from all the hosts (how great is that prize going to be??!!!)
Each podcaster will also send a prize to their favorite entry.

Happy 2019 to all!
