Knotty Val Giveaway!! 2 winners!!! CLOSED




i'm super thrilled to host another Knotty Val giveaway! Val is a dear friend of mine, and an extremely talented artist!! She does some of the the most detailed and extraordinary knotwork i have ever seen. She is also a very talented beader and painter (see the shed mural below!)!


A bit about Val. "I have always been drawn to color and pattern. Straight lines and monotones bore me. I love trying new crafts and "up-cycling" old stuff. If I can paint it I will. A picture framer for more than 20 years I have had the good fortune to see amazing art from all over the world and from all types of artists in all walks of life....just going to work everyday. Art impacts our lives every minute of everyday, something I am sure I already knew but it was driven home working with people, helping them to display and conserve their personal treasures."



Check out the mural she painted on the back of her neighbors shed! Unbelievably cool!

"When my daughter was born in 2004, I wasn't really expecting her, I was getting ready to have a teenager and my very own craft space in our new house but that became a nursery and crafty plans went on hold for me. When I first got online and discovered the community of crafty people there I was inspired to start weaving again, it being something I could do that my young daughter couldn't do much damage with."



"I have been so inspired to keep creating by the women and men I have met in this online community. My daughter loves art and I am really looking forward to sharing all my crafty cravings with her. I have always been happiest when creating and working with color."


"I taught myself to flat weave after a friend bought a Guatemalan "friendship" bracelet while on tour following the Grateful Dead. I love to do beadwork too, and look forward to the day when I have a dedicated space for beading.


Val has offered a special discount to my readers. Use the coupon code "123buyknotty" to receive 20% off anything in the shop, does not include shipping.


Now for the Giveaway!!!
Val has generously offered this beautiful hand woven bracelet and this pair of peace sign earrings to two of my lucky readers!! That's right two winners!!
