Unique Sheep Ambassadors

We love all of our customers, but sometimes a customer stands out above the rest. This is the customer who talks about her experiences with The Unique Sheep on his blog and podcast, encourages her LYS to start carrying Unique Sheep yarns or convinces all of her friends to join our clubs. This is the customer who keeps our Ravelry boards active and encourages her fellow club members when they need help with the patterns or are indecisive about continuing. We can't do enough to thank these customers; not only do they help our business grow (word of mouth is our primary form of "advertising") but they make it so much fun for us and for other customers. And they do it without being asked or receiving any reward. But we feel like they do deserve to be recognized for all that they have done, and so we have decided to give them the honored title of Unique Sheep Ambassador.

We would like to publicly thank and recognize the following customers as official, card carrying, Unique Sheep Ambassadors:

Ivy Reisner: Ivy is a member of many of our clubs and an active participant in our Ravelry groups. She is almost always the first to have finished her club projects! She has brought many new customers to The Unique Sheep through her podcast, Knit Spirit.

L-B Hessa and Ruth Hamlin-Douglas: L-B and Ruth are two of our most active customers on Plurk. They first discovered The Unique Sheep when they signed up for our Secret Garden Mystery Shawl KAL and since then have been so enthusiastic about the KAL and Unique Sheep in general that we credit them with the increased subscription to our next mystery KAL, The Enchanted Wood!

David Reidy: Well known for his podcast Sticks and String, David has been a member of our Ram Club since the first series and everytime he receives a club shipment he reviews it on his podcast. Its so much fun for us to be listening to his show and suddenly hear him mention us!

Allison George: Alli is our official Head Groupie. Aside from the important job of keeping Laura sane, she helps run the booth at SAFF. As an employee at her LYS she has encouraged many new customers to try Unique Sheep yarn.

Chelsea Powers: In addition to being outspoken on Plurk, Chelsea told her LYS owner about us and encouraged her to place an order. Now the Middleford Yarn and Stitchery Shoppe is one of the best places on the West coast to buy Gradiance Sets!

Do you know of someone who deserves the title of Unique Sheep Ambassador? Please nominate them by emailing us at and telling us who and why.
