Farm update!

Dont miss the Flash Sale this Saturday June 19, 2021  10am -2 pm.  You may find some great treasures that you can not live without.

Since things are now openning up, remember to sign up for the newsletter so you do not miss out.  Classes will be starting up shortly.  If you have a specific interest in a class let me know and we can see about seting one up.  Spinning class? weaving class?  Learn to spin? Learn how to process your own fleese?

It is quiet on the farm these days.  The sheep have left to have their staycation.  They will be back in the fall.  The fleeces are being processed.

The garden is growing!  The farm stand has been moved up closer to the garden.  Farmer Sam will be busy again.

I am finishing up my class on the double heddle loom.  The new class started to today.  These are through the Schacht School of textiles.  #schachtspindleco.com

Welcome spring 2021

Well it has been a while since the last post with this pandemic going on.  There have been many changes in how we do things.  Our new normal seems to change.  The shop is open regular times but it is perferred if you call for appt time as I am limited to the number of people I can have in the shop.

What is new you may ask??  Babies and more babies.  I think we are all done with lambing.  Next it will be time to shear!  There will be many fleeces! Then of course more work.

If you are interested in a fleece please contact me via phone or email.

I have been trying to keep you all up to date on the facebook page as it is easy to post a quick photo.  If you are not following us on facebook, join us in all this fun and wooly business.

Ashford has some new products.

 

These will be coming in May!! This is so exciting to have these introduction to dyeing kits.  Order now so you dont miss out.

We made it to spring!!

Since we are seem to have some extra time on our hands with the COVID-19 out and about, I would highly recommend to join the Ashford Club at Ashford.co.nz.  They send out a newletter with lots of inspirational ideas for weaving, knitting and spinning.  You must be a fan of the Wheel Magazine!!   You can locate all the past copies back to 2004 on the website.

Take a look at the new lightening drop spindles from Schacht 50 anniversary.  I  managed to get the last of these beauties.  Each one has a laser etched pattern and it’s sure to be one of your favorites!

The baby lambs are popping out into this sunshine. We have 20 babies so far. There is still more to come.

As mentioned on the workshop page we have postponed the classes and workshops.  We are most happy to open the shop by appointment if you are in need.  You do not realized how much your social life revolves around fibre until all the fibre groups and fibre faires are cancelled!  I miss you already! I’m going to the barn to cuddle lambs.

January we have 2 classes.  The first is an intro to Nuno or wet felting and the second class is the famous jointed teddy bear that has been requested for ages. In Feburary we will do another intro to Nuno felting in case you miss the January class.

Thank you to the Tzouhalem  Guild and Black Creek Spinners for hosting their wonderful Distaff Days.  A spinners ritual not to be missed!
