Fiber Vendors for NETA SPA 2013

Last Updated:  01.04.13
Here are the fiber vendors who will participate in our Mercantile for NETA Spa Knit and Spin 2013. We'll post the therapy vendors in a minute or two - there are three this year!

(note:  actually, we haven't contacted the therapy vendors quite yet to confirm, so I'll post that list once they know - they should get told first, right?!?!? :-P)

There are several new folks on the list, as well as many of your favorites returning again. Our goal was to give you a group of artisans from all over New England, who will bring a wide variety of fibers, products, skills, and energy to share with you. We think these talented people will do just that, and we hope you'll agree!

See you sooner than it seems! (February isn't so far away!)

It can be ANYthing, and you can enter as many times as you want to. The contest ends next Sun., and the prize is a delicious lunch at the Harraseeket Inn.

Remember, the subject line has to be: I REMEMBER

SPA 2012 (First) Contest Winner!

The "I AM GOING TO..." messages were wonderful reading. Thank you, everybody!

Our contest winner, totally randomly and happily selected, is Jean Hearn. Congratulations, Jean. :)

Please write to me privately where you are staying. We planners will make sure your Harraseeket dinner certificate is delivered to the front desk for you.

Next contest is coming right up!

Do you feel lucky?

We planners are working on the last of the Spa event details, and our Spa Spirit is definitely revving. We want to share some of our "looking SO forward" joy with you, so here is our first SPA contest.

(Cue sound of knitting needles clicking in happy applause).

The winner, who will be chosen by some yet-to-be-invented and absolutely random method, will receive a free dinner in the renowned Harraseeket Inn.

The name of the contest is I AM GOING TO, as in: I am going to Spa. I am going to...... You simply fill in the blank with as many plans, dreams and fun ideas as you want to write, then post the message here
with the subject I AM GOING TO.

Do not post entries on this blog. All entries must be posted on the Yahoo mail list site for NETA. Click on the link above, or here - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NewEnglandTextileArts/

Simple, simple and sure to make smiles all around. Now GO!!

Marsha
