Plover Designs Shawl Pins

I'm so happy to announce that I now carry Plover Designs Shawl Pins in the shop!

These really cool shawl pins are made by Jewelry Artist Colin Boyce, the husband of my really good friend Donna!

Donna asked her husband to design some unique shawl pins by telling him about the function of a shawl pin without actually showing him any examples. What he came up with are truly amazing!

I first saw them when Donna put them in our booth at Black Sheep Gathering. There were just a few available at that time. So when Donna said at Oregon Flock & Fiber they were finally ready to sell them to a few select shops I jumped at the chance.

So if you are looking for the perfect gift for the shawl or scarf lover in your life, make sure to check these out!

Late October Sale!

Ok, I know I am late with October's sale! This month has just been crazy. So, to make up for it I am going to run this sale through the end of November:

I have dyed up a variety of new fibers for the shop. I'm experimenting with a bunch of new types of roving for the shop. So until the end of November they will all be 10% off.

The fibers include: BFL, Mixed Brown BFL, Superwash BFL, Merino / Tencel, Superwash Merino / Tencel, Merino / Cashmere, Merino / Silk, and Merino / Tussah Silk. I'm just having so much fun with all of these fibers. Mmm... Hopefully you will enjoy them too!

It's a bit early for those of us in the Gorge, but we have snow today! Just crazy!

It seems like everyone has been so busy lately, and I am no exception. So to catch up, I went to the Spin-In in Mount Hood.

As you can see it was very crowded. The Northwest Regional Spinners Association had their meeting at the same time. That meant that people from all over the northwest came with spinning wheels to spin the day away.

Here is the token booth picture. It was a lot of fun having a show so close to home, only 20 minutes! I had a great time hanging out with some of my favorite spinners. Of course I haven't spun that long for quite awhile. It was a 6 hour day! My muscles definitely felt the burn the next day!
