The eight Swans pictured below will be available in the Store at 3 pm., Pacific Daylight Time, Tuesday April 26th. Larks and Egrets are in the works and will be appearing within the next couple of weeks.
It’s that time of the year when we must scale back adding spindles to the online store. Unlike the past few years when we stopped online sales at the beginning of April this year we’re hoping to add at least eight spindles every week in order to meet ongoing living expenses. Starting in November we set aside some spindles from each batch that Ed makes to in order to have enough stock for this year’s show. Even with that long head start Ed’s not yet reached his goal for the numbers needed to take to the two back to back shows in June.
June 17 – 19th, Palouse Fiber Arts Festival in downtown Moscow, ID. This is a fun, personable in size festival that Shelley has lined up a terrific roster of workshop teachers, including tapestry weaver extraordinaire – Sarah Swett who often uses a Kuchulu to spin specific yarns she needs. Wanda will be teaching a workshop on spinning plant fibers with our spindles. Fun!
June 24 – 26th, Black Sheep Gathering at the Lane Co Fairgrounds in Eugene, OR. Hooray, unlike past US Olympic Track & Field trials that have always coincided in Eugene with BSG — making it impossible to find lodging after January — this year the US trials are scheduled for the following weekend. For people coming a long distance sometimes flights into Eugene are less expensive than flying into PDX and renting a car to drive the 90 miles south.
If you’re new to our Store sign in early then when they appear don’t hesitate to put the one you like into your cart for they tend to be rapidly bought.
In the event that you put a spindle in your cart then decide not to buy it be sure to click on the tiny x delete button on the right of it in your cart so that someone else won’t have to unnecessarily wait for it to become available.
