2021 is here and some semblance of "normal" is returning - few of us will miss the tumult of 2020. Tired of the word "unprecedented", I would love a bit of "normal", though I see it is not at all the same as prior years. At this moment - moving into autumn - many 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 hope for the best.
During the last year 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 art may be close to "out of stock".
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 put the brakes on that life. Now fully vaccinated, we "elderly" are still wary of crowds and person-to-person contact. In 2020 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 was cancelled. Things are loosening up: Sunapee 2021 was a success, and I'm planning on being a vendor in the Cocheco Quilt Fair in Rochester October 16 & 17.
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.
