Only one more show for us this fall!

If you haven't seen us this fall, you can still catch us at the Fiber Festival of New England in Springfield Massachusetts, November 1-2.  This will be our last show of the season.  We'd love to see you there.  Our booth spaces are the same.  This is a wonder show!  It is indoors at the Big E, a huge dry heated building with a sports bar / beer garden.  There are over 150 vendors.  Hope to see you there.


We are caught up and our Skeinwinders and Swifts currently have a 2 week wait.

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.
