Hand dyed alpaca yarn
I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. It was special here as we had guests from Belgium with us. They do not celebrate Thanksgiving, so it was nice for them to experience a true AMERICAN Tradition! They leave for home on Monday.
But….. in the meantime, no time to slack off even with company here! I’ve been busily setting up the Farm Store which opens tomorrow (Sunday November 27th) from 12 – 4.
Then this Saturday is the first Amherst Winter Farmers Market of the season ( December 3rd) from 10 – 1 at the Amherst Middle School Cafateria. Then of course, I’ll be in Boston on Thursday in the Prudential Center, but this week you can find me right across from Barnes & Noble as a lure to get customers down the Belvidere Arcade to see the rest of the Market Vendors.
I’ll also be very busy creating new products for sale. Tuesday will be another marathon yarn dyeing day. and two of my looms are loaded up and ready to go with 2 shawls and a dozen cotton dishtowels. I hope to have these done over the next 2 weeks. The hand woven cotton dishtowels make a great teacher/hostess or other kind of small gift.
Any of my readers who live in the North Shore of Massachusetts area can visit Haley’s on Rt 1 in Newbury (?) where the Sandersons of Parker River Alpacas have set up a beautiful holiday shop loaded with alpaca garments, accessories as well as goods from local artisans. If you stop in, tell them you saw their shop mentioned here on my blog. Their shop is open AT LEAST Friday – Sundays until Christmas. They may even add more open days to their schedule.
Let me know what you’d like to see for sale for the Holiday Season. I’ll do my best to provide what you’re looking for. Any comments? Please post them. I love to hear from you.
