January Book Release and Shawl Giveaway

Releasing January 2018

I’m excited about my new book releasing in January. A Bouquet of Brides is already available for preorder. My story in the collection, In Sheep’s Clothing, combines my love of history and fiber arts.

Meadowsweet

My heroine, Yarrow Fenn, is both a spinner and a weaver. She labors diligently to keep her family clothed after King William III signs The Wool Act into law. And she might even skirt the law a bit … but I won’t go into that here. Along the way, Yarrow befriends an orphan lamb named Meadowsweet. Pictured above is the real Meadowsweet, who lives here at Twin Willows Farm.

To celebrate this release of A Bouquet of Brides, I’m giving away the Meadowsweet Shawl. This shawl is handspun of natural white wool raised right here on the farm. I sheared the sheep, washed and carded the wool, spun the wool, and then knitted the shawl. It doesn’t get any more “Made in America” than that! The Meadowsweet Shawl is crescent-shaped with a raised back to keep your neck extra warm, or to fold over into a collar. The front can be wrapped and pinned or left loose to curl down the front.

I will draw the winner of the Meadowsweet Shawl on January 31st, 2018. To get into the drawing, subscribe to my newsletter and stay an active member by opening my emails! It’s that simple. The contest is open to anyone who has not won one of my book release shawls in the past. (Okay, this is only the second one, but I have three books releasing in 2018. I won’t have to change the wording each time I post the exception. And besides … it just sounded good.)

  1. Beautiful shawl! I could sure use it next month to wear to my grandson’s wedding in the mountains of NC. The event is at an outdoor chapel and it could be chilly. The books all sound interesting. I’m waiting to get the ebook versions.
