Almost Ready!

The dye pot has been bubbling and I, in my witch's hat ( I am thewoolwitch after all ! :):) ) have been creating some great colors for all seasons! My shop will be officially OPEN next week!

Hours are Mon- Fri 12:30-6 and most weekends. Best to call ahead if you aren't sure ... I am here most of the time ( when I am not delivering kids to baseball and girl scouts) and welcome you to visit!

This year I have found a new passion ... Dyeing and working with wool fabric! I have hand-dyed small strips for appliqueing and hooking. I also have my own patterns for sale!

And speaking of patterns I have ordered some very nice patterns from Cabin Fever and Knit Spot. I have chosen projects for we " knitters on the run", easy beginner projects, and patterns I felt would work best with our worsted and bulky weight yarns.

Green Mountain Spinnery spun my worsted weight yarns. The whites have been dyed, and now I await the browns to be finished. I also have an assortment of hand-spun hanks spun by yours truly. Sunshine Pottery has provided me with some wonderful and unique stoneware buttons, and Betty Stover of Spinnakees' Farm is preparing some wonderful roving blends from her farm. We have yarns from Grandview Farm and yarns from The Stonehouse Farm. You won't believe how much I have packed into this old pony barn! :)

Hope you will stop by. Directions are posted on my website.
