We have very limited shares of Carrie Clothes so to make it special we have thrown in some extra special things to make it the best shares that we can. If you remember Carrie is a Dorset Ewe that we know from the ground up. She is 100% natural Oklahoma born and raised and after her life as a show lamb was over Bailey (Carrie's then owner) wasn't sure she wanted her to go for slaughter so I purchased Carrie for her fiber and Introduced my part of the world to Carrie clothes. Her wool will be turned into sock yarn. Well, I have great followers, and they snatched up her shares knowing I was flying by the seat of my pants on this one. Carrie is so tame and loving that I just couldn't let her go for Slaughter but I really hadn't thought this all out either.
Anyway, shareholders bought into a concept that was in mid developement. To those people, Thank you for having Faith in me and I hope you are please when you find out that your share will also come with a pattern and one skein of Hand dyed yarn. Yup, you read that right. Your share will have a secret pattern for one item of clothing. The pattern will come to us from Designer Cricket Toomey of Woolycricket.com She is known as woolycricket on Ravelry and is known to her friends simply as Cricket. She has had patterns published in magazines and we are very happy to have her on board as the exclusive designer behind our Carrie Clothes concept. She has been hard at work for us charting the one thing that will be excusive to Carrie clothes. That Item is a single feather.
As you all know I am part Cherokee. To the Cherokee people different feathers mean different things but all are sacred to our people as birds are messengers between the earth and the sky. So all Carrie Clothes will have the same feather chart in each Item. The Item will change with each years shares. And since the feather pattern is knitted in two colors. Each year the share will include one skein of hand dyed yarn, dyed by Tempted Yarns herself. Each year not only will the pattern change but so will the color. This year's color will be blue. (Really did you not see that coming??? Is there any other color it would have been?)
With the new improvements however there is a few drawbacks. First, this Share will now be run more like a club in the aspect that if you are a shareholder now, you will be offered shares first before they become available to the public. This is being put in place so that those that had faith in us have a chance to get the entire collection of Carrie Clothes patterns, if they so choose to do so. When we hit the end of the pattern rotation you will be notified that you have all the patterns and asked if you want to continue with the share. If not this will open a slot to the public. It will be your choice but we only have certain pattern items we will be offering with this share and they will never be available at this point to anyone but shareholders with Carrie Clothes shares.
