My Mom always celebrated the first day of a new school year by giving me a brand new box of crayons - how simple and happy life was 70 years ago.
The passage of time brings good and bad.
I have been very happy working and living at my home studio "Cellarbrook Farm" for 20 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.
Covid-19 has put the brakes on that life. We "elderly" are advised to quarantine and only go out for necessities. In an era of caution every show and sale I had planned from the NH Sheep & Wool Fest to the League of NH Crafts Sunapee Fair and the Cocheco Quilt Fair are cancelled. 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...so now we are not likely to be "normal" for the foreseeable future, and I have determined to launch an on-line store to offer 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 even though we can't be face to face.
