Views, Weaving and Copper Cold Connections Workshop

We have some great skies in New Mexico.  This is a view from our front porch.

I'm weaving a waffle weave on my Baby Wolf loom.  It's looking pretty good!

 At the beginning of February I enjoyed the gem and mineral show in Tucson, Art Festival in Tubac and a workshop with Mary Hetts in Tucson. It was a great time. Here are some of the pieces I made at the workshop.

Organic Cotton Yarn, dyed yarns and fiber


Hello Everyone...sorry to be so slow to post. I suppose you could say I'm keeping busy!! I've been working on getting established in a new region and getting over health issues for the past 2 years!! What I wanted to tell you is with the cotton industry and crop failures around the world cotton prices have risen higher than my parent company can absorb, so they are passing the price increase down to us. I will have to raise all my cotton prices 15%. I'm running very low on the green and caramel colorgrown cotton, so will be pulling most of my stock and the foxfibre for personal use. I've noticed Sally's prices have far exceeded I need to rethink what I have in stock.

The organic cotton blankets I have are superior quality. I had company coming this past summer, and thought "I have to get a new blanket"...duh...there are blankets in the shop! So, I've put them on the beds and wow...what a pleasure they are. They wash well and feel wonderful. I'm mostly using the chenille cotton blankets, but do have a few more summer weights. The point is, I don't have much of a mark up on these blankets, basically cost + a very little. I will be raising all these prices by at least 15% also.

Thanks for all your support over the years. I really value you as friends!
