Fibre 4 Fibres Giveaway preview 100

Welcome to the final raffle in my Fibre 4 Fibres fundraising for Myositis UK! This is my 100th raffle and I feel the time is right to bring things to a close. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to raise such an incredible amount of money. Through your donations for virtual raffle tickets, my design commissions and all my pattern sales, between us we have raised more than £30,000 which will be enough to fund at least one research project. Thank you.

There are three prizes to be won this week. Each prize contains a zipped project bag, a set of 2.5mm circular needles, a fridge magnet, some stitch markers and an assortment of beautiful yarn. The yarn has been donated by Spin & Blether, Crafthouse Magic and my Instagram friends Sophie and Ann, as well as a couple of skeins from my stash. The stitchmarkers have been donated by Spin & Blether and The Yarnicorn. Sophie donated several balls and skeins of yarn including two self striping yarns which have already been caked up. They are dyed by Country Mouse Yarns but don't have a label; they are 75% merino and 25% nylon, confirmed by the dyer and you can see the beautiful stripes they knit up in one of the photos below. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated a prize this week.

Here's a reminder of what you need to do if you'd like to enter the final raffle! You have a chance to win one of these gorgeous prizes for a minimum donation of £2! Are you tempted to try your luck? Here's everything you need to know. This giveaway will run this coming Sunday 11th September, closing at 23:45. To enter, go to my JustGiving page here and buy your virtual raffle tickets by donating £2 or more. £2 gets you 2 tickets, £3 gets you 3 tickets, £5 gets you 5 tickets and so on. The more you donate, the greater your chance of winning. You will need to leave your Instagram or Ravelry name, or tick the box to share your email address with me when you make your donation, so that I can contact you if you are the winner. This is really important as I have no way of knowing who you are otherwise. Each week, I still get donations where no name or email is left, so if that person's number comes up in the random number generator, I have no idea who it is! All your donations go the Myositis UK to help fund research into this incurable muscle disease, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support.  Myositis is a rare disease and that means that there isn't as much research done to help find better treatment and ultimately a cure. Every single donation is important. Last week the total raised hit £30,000 and I am so grateful to everyone one of you who has donated. Thank you and stay safe! xxx
