Crafters Against SOPA

Crafters Against SOPA

I typically never get political in a public forum. When amongst a group of people, I avoid the topics of religion, politics and the correct way to make a grilled cheese sandwich. (Yes, there is a correct way, and I will not get into that here.) However, the SOPA/PIPA legislation is HUGE.

If you’ve been under a rock the past week or so, or tend to just avoid politics altogether, I beg you to crawl out from under your rock and catch up by reading the SOPA/PIPA description on Wikipedia.¬†The details of this bill, in all of their extreme vagueness, could make this one of the most, if not the single most, crippling pieces of legislation we’ve ever seen.

I’m not going to go on a rant about everything I despise about this bill, I just ask that you take 5 minutes out of your busy life and read what it’s about. Small business owner, or not, this will affect everyone one way or another.

Phat Fiber Debut

This weekend is going to be an exciting weekend! GnomeAcres is making its’ debut in the “Luxe” Phat Fiber sampler box!

There are 50 samples of some amazing Fake Cashmere fiber. This is a fantastic fiber to blend and spin with. And just to spice things up a bit, one of those fifty samples will not only have the Fake Cashmere, but it will have REAL Cashmere as well. (Pssst…I just put the real Cashmere on SALE!) Each of the samples, and about fifty business cards, have a secret coupon code on them that can be used on anything in the shop from now until the end of February.

Here’s the video preview of the fiber I’ve included:
