Summer has been a sponsor a few times before, and is always finding the neatest new 'victims' for us to purchase from, give views to and lots of love!
Like many of us, when we will young, Summer was taught how to crochet by her grandmother. And she loves passing along that craft to others. I recently browsed through her shop, looking for a crocheted item to show you, and found this beautiful, soft scarf that is perfect for any time of the year! And I just love the color.
Of course, Summer makes jewelry as well as lots of other neat creations - be sure to browse her shop today, as you get ready for some fun, and then join us at our Sneak Attack thread! We would love to see you there.

We have a brand new sponsor Courtney from yarns2dye4
We are starting our sneak attack early - at 4pm
Our sponsor has to be included with all our other fiber obsessed sneakers and she dyes her own yarn!
I asked Courtney about her yarn and her shop:
My yarn line is dedicated to my grandmother who passed away in April. The shop name, ShireKat Yarns, is actually a combination of her first and middle names (Shirley Kathleen) and was the username she came up with for her email account. In honor of her, I donate 10% of every sale to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.
Be sure to see all the yummy yarn in her shop and then come chat with us in our Sneak Attack thread as we get ready to surprise some new Etsy shops!

I asked MsBitty how she found out about the Sneak Attacks.
I actually found the sneak attack site via Scatterbrain Tees. (made by Michael of Phippsart, the artist who started this great group) I loved the "Buy Handmade" Tee (which by the way I own one). From there I checked the group saw what I liked and joined. At first, I only checked in during the attacks, but then began chatting more and more and just love the little niche. The sneaky members are SUPER AWESOME!
I was browsing through MsBitty's shop and found this adorable journal, just right for anyone who loves to write!
There are lots of creative items to see in MsBitty's shop. Spend some time there and then come on over and join us in our Sneak Attack thread for some weekend fun!

WMS loves the world of knitting and fiber and works to make her Etsy shop reflect that love:
I started my shop with general items and have slowly moved toward more and more knitting/spinning-related stuff. It fits my interests well (I adore knitting and spinning) and the fiber community seems to really like being able to purchase little gifts like mugs and stitch markers that fit with their interests.
I browsed through WMS' shop and found these adorable stitch markers. OMG - oreo cookies - so yummy (Please Do Not Eat!).
See what other kind of yummy stitch markers you can find at her shop and then come have fun with us at our Sneak Attack thread as we wait for the introduction of our latest 'victims'!
