Leaving for Maryland!

May 4th, 2007

Thank you so much everyone for all the interest in our new little baby! We have been so overwhelmed with the response to Ravelry… We knew that it was a good idea but didn’t realize how quickly the word would spread through blogland!

A quick note to people who have signed up for an beta account: We will be sending out some more invites next week to people on that list, in order that they were received. Since Casey and I will not have much computer access while we are in Maryland, we don’t want people to need help if we are not around. We really appreciate your interest and hope you can wait just a little bit while we find our feet! Everyone is welcome at Ravelry- seriously.

So I am trying to get out of the house to get our plane so I better go but check out the Ravelry swag we got for Maryland!

First up, are my silly “business” cards. They are Moo Cards, and are SO COOL. I totally need more of these. We also ordered some Ravelry buttons to give out to people at MDS&W- aren’t they fun? WE crack ourselves up. The folks at Button Arcade were awesome about getting them to use super fast and they came out great. I think we maybe should have ordered more- we got 500. Oh well.

I also got a Ravelry tote bag and am pretty happy how this turned out- the 3 colors on the yarn ball are not showing up well but it is still fun. See how Bob helps with photo shoots? He would not move out of the way. Take a picture of me! I am much cooler that that stupid bag.

Do come say hi at Maryland! I will have Ravelry buttons! ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Kari Says:

    Hey, if you put that swag on Cafe Press, I’d buy it and it would help defray your server costs ๐Ÿ™‚ Think about it – how cool would it to be to have a knit bag with the Ravelry logo on it?
