A little promotion for some wee ones

Hi all,
The blog seems to be rip roaring!!
Oh well, here is an idea I came up with when we were at the hospital several weeks ago bringing our little girl into the world.

If you send me a little newborn hat I will take 10% off your entire order! I will then donate the hats to Beverly hospital to donate to the newborns and their families. We received one and overheard there was a shortage. It was a really nice thing and it would be a shame for not everyone to not have that little bit of niceness.

This offer is not cumulative(ie. if you send in 5 hats you won't get 50% off your order, just 10%) and only applies to orders placed through the website. I will keep track of the hats as I receive them and send a refund for 10% of your order after I receive payment. I was hoping to incorporate it into the ordering process but it is too involved and I don't want to wait. There are bare heads out there!

Each hat donated will also equal one entry into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate for our yarns.
There will be no cap (he he) on the number of entries allowed. The drawing will be held Christmas morning so you might just get an extra Christmas present!!

Please send the hats to:

Coveted Yarn
PO BOX 6015
Gloucester, MA 01930

Please include your contact info so I know who is sending what and can apply the discounts and entrries as necessary.

Please feel free to post your favorite baby hat patterns or links to them. It would be really nice to be able to make this a continuing program. We look forward to sharing a little handmade love with a lot of little ones.

Thanks so much!
-Robert

Hi! This looks like a lot of fun! I don't have a google account, but wondered, are crocheters welcome? :) I don't know how to knit very well, even enough to do much of a hat. Also, do you want preemie-newborn size? I've just sent you an e-mail, but wanted to send you a comment here too. My e-mail address is vickiespot1@yahoo.com Thanks!!

Victoria,
Crocheted hats are more than welcome. We would love to include you in this program. Newborn hats are what we are looking for as that is where the biggest demand is. That being said we won't turn away hats for preemies. You can enter more than one hat and please tell your friends!!
