And the winner is….

We have been waiting (on the edge of our seats!) for the results of our big VOTE to determine the colour of this years Special Edition bobbin!

You too?

Waiting for me to mention what that result is? :D

We had an overwhelming response on the Facebook page, and a clear majority DID emerge from the four possible options which where these:

And I would just like to take this moment to mention that Andy now owes me a coffee! (lets make that a Latte thanks Andy, with some cinnamon on top) because THE WINNER IS!.....

Yes, ROSEBRIGHT!   This amazing colour, reminiscent of vibrant fuschia's and richly iced cupcakes, will bring a new excitement to our wheels and spinning this year!

Here are the overall results as best as we can count:

Rosebright 97

Caelestis 83

Phosphore 63

Cyrtherean Bloom 8

So despite Andrews overt and for me, steamed milk and coffee rich attempt to turn the voting Phosphorewards, the Rosebrights made a majority and will become the 2017 Limited Edition bobbin colour of the year! Yay! And it is going to look wonderful next to the previous purple and green.

However there is yet hope for Andrews oranges, we will reprise the two runners up in next years voting selection and Phosphore and Cyrtherean Bloom will have another opportunity to shine as you vote for 2018 :)

And now you may be wondering just who the lucky FIVE will be, the five winners of the first RoseBright Bobbins?!

Here are the names! Congratulations! If your name is here, please contact us at support@majacraft.co.nz as soon as you can with your postal address and the subject line 'Rosebright Bobbin Winner'

Bobbin Treats!

Limited Edition bobbins? Different colours? Yes! We've got them! This is just a little heads-up if you didn't know about these already, because they are proving very popular and just go to show that us spinners love colour! Last year we brought out some super new Lime Green standard bobbins (there are still just a few left), they look amazing on the wheels and are really fun to use, and being our standard bobbin they fit all our wheels and flyers (except of course the lace and overdrive flyers.)

I love this colour, its so bright and my yarns look awesome on them which makes it even more fun to spin!

Now this year (2016) we have a new colour, in fact are you seeing a pattern here? Each year will see a new Limited Edition bobbin colour! These colours will not be repeated (hence 'limited edition'), so if you start collecting you will end up with a range of unique bobbins that you can use to colour code your spinning, decorate your studio with, and make your own bobbin rainbow!

We are loving the 2016 colour, and we are not the only ones, these are being snapped up quickly, in fact I think purple is one of the most popular colours for spinners.. maybe we should choose a pretty lilac next year to match, or should we go neon pink?! We don't know yet either :) But we do know these purple ones will only be available this year and only while stocks last. Check out your local dealer for availability and pricing!
