Small flood

I started the new year with promises to keep the blog up to date. I really did try to keep the promise but Mother Nature had other plans for me. Last Wednesday just when our rug hooking group was about to start, a frozen pipe in our ceiling burst. Six gallons a minute poured out of our ceiling in the yarn room. I'm sure it was more than that. Thanks to the help of Jane Thomas and Ellen Harry , they managed to keep the damage to a minimum. We are dried out and although we will need new carpeting and a little drywall we are up and running and business as usual. As a result we are doing some serious spring cleaning . Blah!
I am going to spend the day dyeing as it is still snowing as I write this post.
New fabrics are arriving daily and some beautiful Michael Miller fabrics that are very retro.
The knitters have kept me busy this winter so keep an eye out for new yarns arriving daily.
Have a great day

Happy New Year

It has been some time since I have posted to this blog and my New Years resolution is to try and keep up. The new year has come in on a high note and although it has been extremely cold ,I have to admire the tenacity of you women for getting out in this weather.
Knitters continue to meet on Tuesday afternoons from 1-3 all are welcome. I had my hands on some beautiful Alpaca yarn today for Amazing Graze Alpacas. They are located north of Stirling and I'm going to try and make a trip especially now that I've handled some of their product.
Hookers meet on Wednesday afternoons form 1-3 and this group is ever changing and they are all a fountain of information and opinions. lol Please call and book if you are new to this group.
Thursday morning is a mixture of knitters,quilters and stitchers and meets from 9:30-11:30.  I'm available for help if you are having a problem with a project .
All groups are very informal and there is always someone that can help with a problem .

For the hookers: I have been busy dyeing wool for you and if there are any special requests please inquire. I dye fabric and yarn on a weekly basis so if there is something special you would like Inwill be happy to accommodate you.

Knitters: we have yarns arriving weekly. Please try and bear with us as I am finding that shipping is a little slower and some companies don't carry a lot of stock these days. All of us are monitoring our inventories carefully. We strive to get you what you want.

Quilters: Fabrics and notions are ever changing so don't be afraid to drop in regularly and check out our new arrivals.

I'm off to the dye pots
