Next Saturday we will be at our downtown location-5th and Sherman- starting at 10:00 am as part of the Fall Fest Celebration. Mark your calendars for our amazing Winter Market, Dec. 3 at the Fairgrounds. We are so grateful for your patronage and support. We small farmers and crafters depend on you so we can continue to grow clean, healthy food and produce one of a kind art and yummy baked goods, teas and coffee. It's hard work, but we love it, and we really appreciate being able to interact with you every week.

My booth is located behind the stage, filled with tons of handspun yarns, hats, shawls all made by me from sheep and alpaca grown right here in eastern WA and N Idaho.
this week we went up to priest lake for a 2 day vacation, lots of hiking along the shoreline and forest trails. Even had time for beach knitting every morining.
since I have finished up my iris flower dyeing. Quite a process with the presoaking of the wool, then mordanting by cooking in a creme of tartar and alum bath. brewing up the iris flowers and then cooking the wool and mohair in the iris vat. i did get 5 pounds of fiber and some yarn skeins dyed up this time.It came out a beautiful soft earthy almost mint green. Thinking i will add some indigo dyed locks as i spin it. now i like to let it set and cure. hopefully after i spin a skein and wash it i will have some color left. always a surprise till the end.
