News for May..

We currently have a 4 week wait on our winders.  

After many years, we have decided to do some much needed renovations and repairs to our home and studio.  While we do these, we will offer most of our yarn bases at shows and by special order.  Our winders will remain online with a four week wait.  It seems that is the only way that we can possibly hope to catch up with these projects.  I thank you in advance for understanding and hope to see you at our shows.  

2016 show schedule is up!  We'll be at the following shows this month.

  • NH Sheep & Wool Festival in Deerfield NH   May 14-15 . You can find us in building AA, that's the lower level of 'A'.  Same area as last year.
  • MA Sheep & Wool Festival   Cummington MA  May 28-29    Once again we'll be in the stalls under the grandstand.  Same booth spaces as past years.     

If you are looking for something completely different, check out Xandy Peter's new Mixed Up Mystery KAL using our Sophia yarn.  It's available on her Ravelry pattern page.

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.
