It's spring in the kingdom and we're getting ready for show season!

Everyday now, the view from my studio changes.  The pond ice melts during the day and freezes up at night.  Our resident geese have come by daily for the last two weeks checking for any open water.  It is nesting time on that little island but not until Papa Goose can swim to guard the nest.  

Out first show is April 28th in Tolland Connecticut.  The Connecticutt Sheep & Wool Festival is a favorite.  Spring flowers , bright green hills and apple trees blooming on the hills.  Come by if you're in the area, we'd love to see you.  It has been a long winter.

 

The SkeinWinders and Swifts are now online!  We have finally worked our way through the waitlist and are now back to the standard 3-4 week lead time.
