2022 has arrived and we hope for the best - some semblance of "normal" is returning - but Covid keeps morphing with new precautions. Tired of the word "unprecedented", we would all love a bit of "normal", though I see it is not at all the same as prior years. At this moment - some events are being revived and we hope for more. The real emergence of Covid variants, and the sharp rise of serious illness especially in the unvaccinated makes any plans tentative, but we can hope for the best.
During the last years I have spun new yarn nearly every evening so there's a lot to choose from. I haven't been active with printmaking, so some editions are close to "out of stock".
I have been very happy working and living at my home studio "Cellarbrook Farm" for 22 years. It's been joyful to welcome friends and customers to see what's new, to select a gift, to find just the perfect bit of handspun yarn for a project,and to chat about life and art. Open Studio days this year were quiet, but vistors were content with my masking requirement and it was great to have familiar faces and new folks just wanting to see "what you have in here".
Now fully vaccinated and boosted, we "elderly" are still wary of crowds and person-to-person contact. In 2021 I was able to show my work at League of NH Crafts Sunapee Fair and in person at the Cocheco Quilt Fair in Rochester. I have reserved a booth at the NH Sheep & Wool Festival in May 2022.
I kept busy and created a vast collection of new handspun yarns over the winter months and have built inventory in anticipation of those shows...This on-line store offers my works to loyal customers I consider to be old friends and to the wider world as well.
I invite you to explore here and hope you'll find something to brighten your day, enhance your own cocoon, or delight your fingers as you work some new knitted or woven project. Thanks for stopping by this site - with luck - (and face masks) we can meet in person again soon.
