4th anniversary of justcolours.de – win a November thread collection of hand-dyed threads

I announced it on my German blog a while ago: starting this month, subscriptions could be extended to include a hand-dyed threads collection in the same colours as the hand-dyed fabrics of the fabric club. When I started planning this newest product I had absolutely no idea how well it would be received. But I have to say that I am very content with the number of ‘old’ subscribers who ordered this additional feature, and also with the ratio of ‘threads included’ in the new subscriptions since I have been telling people about it since Veldhoven.
Right now I am in the midst of dyeing the November-collection of fabrics, and for the first time a special arrangement for the threads must be included. 

Waiting for dye...

The intellectual challenge, of course, is, to remember to take a little bit of the dye when beginning every colour, and pour it over the prepared threads. Because if I forget that... then it would be difficult to get the same shade of colour again, as they are always different.

This month's collection, of course, marks the 4th anniversary of my little business adventure – it was in the beginning of November 2010 that I started dyeing my „Introductory collection“ for the fabric club. In celebration of this moment in history you can win a set of hand-dyed threads in the colours of this November-collection. This is a rather exclusive prize as these threads are ONLY available in subscription.

Here is what you have to do to enter the draw:
Between now and Tuesday, Nov 25th, 2014, midnight leave a comment (with a recognizable name) on either the German or the English Blog. I will have a neutral person draw a lucky winner, who will be announced on the blog. Limit of one comment per person.
Good luck to all participants.

And thank you very much to all those who have helped make my enterprise be as successful as it is!

    Hand dyed threads give life to a quilt, and they are fun
    when you work with them. I can't resist using them in nearly
    each quilt!

  8. Congratulations on the 4th anniversary. The threads idea is a good one. I don't want to be included in the draw though because I have enough hand dyed threads to last me more than a lifetime!
