Small Business Saturday thoughts..

While I completely support the idea behind Small Business Saturday, those of us out there without brick and mortar stores have a little more work to do to get the word out. If you're looking for a great gift for a knitter or crochet enthusiast in your life, check out the yarns on my Etsy shop, or email me to create a custom yarn for a specific project. Handspun helps to feed a homestead, and your purchase helps me to keep creating and teaching to forward the art of spinning.

So, today as I work on spinning projects, I've thought about the ways that I reach out and let folks have a birds' eye view of whatever I'm currently working on, and resolved to try to post a bit more often.

Here's what's currently on the bobbins:



This bobbin was filled full-to-bursting at the Old Deerfield Christmas Sampler Craft Fair last Sunday, where I was doing a spinning demonstration and vending my handspun yarns. I had a lovely day there, and enjoyed the wide variety of responses from visitors.



The fibers are from a Bullseye Batt made by Loop, and should create a lovely self-striping yarn after they've been plied and set.

Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday!

Later,

-Me.
