    High-res download of one of my stunning, slightly abstracted, art images of yarn. Please browse the pluckyfluff website for an idea of the aesthetic it will be. you can make as many prints as you want! (but NOT for resale please). The image will print as large as 18 x 24 and will be a great piece to frame for your wall.

    Signed and CUSTOM COVERED second edition (paperback) of 'Intertwined'. If you don't know the story...the publisher re-designed the cover and didn't run it by me. It's not only not my yarn on the cover, but it's my ex's! Since the publisher refused to take all 6000 out into the atlantic and dump them, iv'e decided to re-do as many as I can get my hands on. What's this mean for you? A really artistic (probably funky) collaged and graffiti'd book. All the content is the same though!

    Walk of Fame! A Handmade tile will be made with your name on it! These tiles will be embedded as a patio mosaic at the entrance of the studio. A permanent record of the studio's supporters! If you are a crafts-person or artists yourself and want to send in your own tile, that's fine too! Otherwise, i'll be making them myself. I will lay them all in cement during construction of the building.

    Reserve wine-tasting in the Boeger Winery tasting room followed by a 1 hour fiber free-for-all session in the studio. That means you can select fibers and material TO TAKE HOME WITH YOU. (max 8oz) I have a great collection of weird and cool fiber. Make batts if you want, spin yarn or just select some goodies to share with your spinning pals. Don't spin? This fiber would be cool just to have or would make a great gift for any crafters or artists you may know.

    One original skein of my hand-spun yarn. Yardage and style unknown! You got to be comfortable with surprises on this one. I rarely plan ahead, so it will be a spontaneous creation FOR YOU. Will come with a signed title tag. No custom requests, sorry! (artists hate that you know....kills us a little on the inside..)

    Selection of my original handspun yarns totaling around 1.5 - 2lbs. All skeins are one-of-a-kind and will have signed title tags. For this pledge I will take custom requests. I can't replicate things from the past exactly, but i can do things in the 'style' of your choosing. Or, you can leave it up to me and i'll make a selection that's cool.

    Custom Art yarn installation in your home (or space of your choosing). I will come to your location, spin a yarn specifically for your space and install the piece as a spontaneous on-the-spot creation. This work is usually dictated by the environment so do not choose this reward unless you are comfortable with the artwork being what it wants to be. It is not a collaboration. However, part of my process is to talk to you about your space, get a feel for your aesthetics and what you respond to and I will do my darndest to make something really cool just for you. THIS REWARD IS DEPENDENT ON ME BEING ABLE TO GET TO YOU AFFORDABLY! Continental US only unless to are willing to buy a plane ticket. If I have to travel to you please plan on putting me up on the couch and feeding me biscuits or something. I am coming from Placerville CA. message me if you're not sure. to see examples of my art installations see my blog.
