Two If By Hand is the dynamic dyeing duo of Ceylan and Mayte located in Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX. We are an indie company dedicated to creating beautiful high-quality yarn and fiber.  We find inspiration from pop culture, anything from books and movies like Harry Potter and Hunger Games, to TV shows like Big Bang Theory and Friends, to music from many genres.  We are currently taking sign-ups for our monthly themed and gradient clubs through June 20th.  Enjoy a monthly surprise!  You can also join us in our Ravelry group, where we have quarterly challenges with the chance to win prizes, and where you can share your spins and knits and chat with fellow Two if by Hand lovers.  Through the month of June, use coupon code mentioned in the episode at our website atwww.twoifbyhand.bigcartel.com  for a 10% discount on all yarn and fiber in the shop (discount does not apply to club subscriptions).  Two if by Hand – yarn and fiber that loves you back!

And a reminder of the rules: Christmas in July CAL:
– will run from July 1 – August 31
– we will draw for prizes on a special KAL/prize episode at the beginning of September- you have until September 2 to get your pictures up
– each person gets one FO post.
– there is a chatter thread for you to talk about your projects that you want to make before we start, and to discuss your progress once we get going.
– you can count any project that will either be a gift, or is Christmas themed.
– only new projects, WIPs do not count, but you can use whatever crafting method you can devise.
– we will draw for prizes based on the total number of FO posts, not on the total number of FOs per person (we want to keep this simple!)
– if anyone would like to donate a prize, please contact us!
