It has been a long time since I blogged last. I worked on some spindles like crazy and shipped them off to another store who is selling them on consignment for me. This is a great opportunity and I relish being able to say to my customers, "If you don't find what you want here, you can also try Greenberry House, they carry my spindles as well..." I feel so "out there" being able to say that!
To catch up quickly, I took another short break from making spindles to gather ideas, move to my new (well, used, but new to us) house and re-establish the craft room that is my work area. I still only allow people in who have signed the waiver against personal injury... 9/10 of my stuff: spindle pieces, parts, inventory, tools, other projects and the crocheting, spinning and weaving tools are in their places. The other 1/10 is still in their boxes on the floor, awaiting shelf space.
I am grearing up for the Pumpkin festival at Cestari Farms this month (11, 12, 18, 19, 25 and 26). This will be my first Pumpkin Festival and I have been working on adding fall-themed spindles to the mix. I have not listed them online yet, but will offer them on my site after the Pumpkin Festival is over. I know it isn't always possible to meet my customers in person, but I much prefer to be able to talk to the person and have them try out the spindle first, before purchasing it. It makes for a better fit in the long run.
If you read my blog and you'll be at the Pumpkin Festival, drop in and chat a while, I'd love to meet you.
