Meet Laura Hayner.   And Shadow.  What a sweet doggie. She follows Laura everywhere.img_2902

She is spinning fleece of some local sheep.

Here’s a skein of some of her handspun yarn from a spinning workshop. It was a grab bag of different fibers and has a really cool and varied look to it.

Spoiler Alert for Christmas Gifts-  Made in the U.S.A.- World’s Warmest Socks for Winter.  I’m sure she’d be happy to send you some.  They are thick and cushy. Perfect in a big boot or to wear around a drafty house.

img_2904Thanks Laura for welcoming us to your lovely shop.  Love the name of your store.

Thanks for showing us your logo.  My sister likes the buttons she bought, too.

I enjoyed seeing your spinning and will enjoy knitting all the yarn I bought and shipped to myself.  It’s great you get your fiber from local ranches and farms- 4R Ranch in Tonasket and Good Farms in Okanogan for two.

We were shopping for spices. I photographed this wall of beautifully colored thread for crochet and embroidery. The owners showed me a religious blessing ornament made with the thread. I asked if it would be okay to take pictures and they said yes.
