Spring Shows are almost here!!

If you missed us over the winter, the spring shows are beginning  (at least for us)  April 26th in Vernon Connecticut.  Here's the link to the Connecticut Sheep & Wool.  This is a one day show and a terrifc way to begin the spring show season.  The grounds are always planted with tons of daffodils, the grass couldn't be greener and usually the apple blossoms are out.  

 

Available Now!!!!

Ibisco!  a new design by Thea Colman.  Shown in Lyra.  Preorders for yarn to be announced.

SPINDLE UPDATE !!  Check out our new Modular Spindles in the Mini size  also!!

   
 
 
Beach Buttons..  We made several trips to the beach last fall and late winter gathering materials for our stone Beach Buttons.  No two alike, these are natural beach stone buttons, made by Mother Nature, polished by Father Neptune, and made into buttons here in the shop.
 
 
 

  Lillian Fay  has a new sister!

Our Electric Skein Winders (this includes the Multi-Skeiner) have been updated to now include shaped yarn pegs.  These keep your skeins separated while winding, no more crossovers. 


The Yarn Pegs are also available separately if you wish to upgrade an older model.

The Crank Winder now comes in two sizes;  a single and a triple skein winder.  Just check the drop down box on the Crank Winder page.
