  • Tina

    It wouldn’t let me click that I already subscribe to the newsletter. I couldn’t choose any of the choices. Does that disqualify my entry?

    • Brandyce

    I also tried to answer the three choices and could not click on any of them…… Please say this is not a scam ! ?

    • Brandyce

      Hi @59568a6414d09b99c6f2719ad3bc37a9:disqus this might be a browser issue, you may just need to clear your cache. But if you were able to get to the last page that says “Thank You”, then no worries, you’ve been entered. I hope that helps!

    I have not bought Vanna’s choices yarn yet but I would love to give a try and make an afghan blanket…

  • Sharon

    Vanna’s Choice yarn is absolutely the best for soft, durable baby afghans – I love it!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/tammy.terrell.9 Tammy Terrell

    I absolutely LOVE Vanna’s Choice yarns!!! The colors are so vibrant and the selection can’t be beat! I have made six afghans in the past 2 1/2 years…two of which were for young Granddaughters that we just visited a few weeks ago. They have been loved and used everyday and washed often, and still are in great shape and the colors are still gorgeous!! I would love to win Vanna’s Choice yarn to make this baby blanket!!! I also need new Fiskars scissors for cutting fabric as my husband confiscated my good pair of Fiskars that I have had for years…and I definitely would love to have the folding pair to put in my yarn project bag!!

    • Brandyce

      Thanks for sharing with us Tammy! Good luck!

    Love Vanna’s yarns, find myself buy her brand and Lion Brand more than any others. I do several different crochet projects and the Fiskars are my only choice for sewing and crocheting. It’s my choice for any baby project and use Glamour all the time for my T-Shirt Bling.

  • Luci

    what pretty colors!!!!!!!

  • PaulaSumm

    I just LOVE the beautiful spring time colors! I haven’t tried Vanna’s Choice Yarn yet, but I look forward to trying it in the future. I too love the Fiskars scissors, I have used them for years for sewing but I do need a new pair since they aren’t cutting as well as they used to. I would also like to win the folding scissors, I have never had a pair of those and I believe I would really enjoy them. They would come in handy during long hours at the hospital during my husbands stays. I have entered the contest and I would just like to thank you for sponsoring this wonderful contest! Good luck to all who are entering.
