I'll be gifting something warm, cozy and available in a rainbow of colors and styles.
Yep, you guessed it! My felted alpaca beanies! You can get one or more of your very own felted alpaca beanies at a discounted rate through November 1! Read on to learn more!
I also want to know what your favorite color(s) are, and your favorite embellishment!
You've heard me mention The Artisan Group before, otherwise known as TAG. It's an amazing group of artisans.You'll find artisans from all genres: bath and body artisans, painters, graphic artists, creators of pet toys and tutus, and fiber artists and everything in between. This is a juried group. That means that there is a selection process. Not everyone can join.
As a group, we support each other. Share our experiences. Gift to celebrities and press at major gifting events, as well as to individual celebrities. It can be a really great way to get your name out there and your product in the hands of those who might not otherwise see it.
This time, TAG was lucky enough to be selected by The Country Music Association to participate in the official gift lounge for "The 46th Annual CMA Awards!" A first time event for our group of artists, and absolutely amazing! If you are not familiar with the CMA Awards, here's a little info directly from them.
The first “CMA Awards Banquet and Show” was held in 1967. The following year, the CMA Awards was broadcast on NBC Television for the first time – making it the longest running, annual music awards program on network television. The Awards aired on NBC through 1971, on the CBS Television Network from 1972 through 2005, and has aired on ABC since 2006. ABC will be the network home of the CMA Awards through 2021.
Who comes to the gift lounge? The musicians, of course. And then select members of the press. Would you like to take a peak at last year's lounge. I'm so excited to be getting my beanies into the hands of these talented musical artists!
I also gifted 35 members of the press my felted knit alpaca beanies, available in slouchy lightweight and skully mid-weight styles. As well as embellished and solids. It was not an easy decision. I wavered between a small pouch or beanies. I figured if any crowd would be into some awesomely soft and beautiful hats, it would be this one.
I'm offering them for pre-sale introductory price now, at a special rate of $55 for the solids and $60 for the embellished (daisies, hibiscus or flying hearts). Introductory rate will last until November 1, 2012. November 2, it will revert to the original prices of $70/$75.
