Now that we are one week away from Rhinebeck, let's talk.
First things first, when and where:
New York State Sheep & Wool Festival

Sunday October 21st 9am to 4pm
The Dutchess County Fairgrounds
6550 Spring Brook Avenue
Rhinebeck, NY 12572
**Our Booth: Building B Space 4**
We will be premiering two new shawls. The first one is a knitted lace shawl by Kristi Holaas called Twisted Leaves. Kristi has reworked this pattern and added beads in both the body and the edging of the shawl. The yarn in the kit is a fingering weight mix of cashmere and merino hand-dyed by June Pryce Fibers Arts. The beads in the body are wonderful Czech size 6 beads and along the edge are Japanese Long Magatamas.
The second one is a crochet shawl created for us by Linda Dean called Pilgrimage. This pattern includes two colors of our brand new Square Miyuki Seed Beads. They are so new that they are not even up on the web page yet! (As soon as I get them up, I will include a link here.They are up! You can get them here!) The yarn in this kit is also the cashmere/merino hand-dyed by June Pryce Fiber Arts. This kit has both a neutral gradient and a colorful one to create a great contrast!
Not enough goodies yet? We will also have a special Art For Your Feet Surprise! We will have a rarely seen Tsock-Shawl set. We are not revealing here, so you will have to come to the booth to see what it is! (Hint: The colors are black and red.)
See You at Rhinebeck!
We are completely revamping our booth for Rhinebeck this year! Our amazing beads are now hanging up and what a tantalizing sight they are!
We are now using hand-dyed yarn in all of our patterns. June Pryce Fiber Arts and A Hundred Ravens are busy dying deliciousness for us even as I write this. Want to have a peek at one of our exclusive colorways? Of course you do!
Now we bet you want to see what you can make with this yummy yarn! Here are three of our newest pattern additions and, you guessed it, they all have beads!
So, have fun at Rhinebeck. Remember to bring your handmade sweater. Eat lots of fabulous food, and come see us in Building B Space 4! We can't wait for this weekend!
We've been busy getting ready for NYS Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck. Of course we're getting our layers of clothing together and choosing (as if one could choose!) what yarns we can't leave without. We're happily making plans to meet up with friends and enjoy each other's company. We have been organizing our beads, and yarns, and kits so that we have enough for all of you, but we're also busy putting together some special Rhinebeck treats for all our wonderful friends and customers!
The first treat we have are some amazing new bead colors! A friend of ours closed his bead business in NYC and we scored lots of new and vintage beads that are perfect for knitting, crochet, and spinning! We have been putting them in tubes and labeling like crazy. Now you probably want a preview. We can arrange for that!
We've also commissioned a very limited number of hand made glass sheep, alpacas, and rabbits from the extremely talented Maureen Henriques at Pumpkin Hill Beads. We are busy making these cute little guys into amazing earrings. Want to see the cutest glass animals in the world? Of course you do!
We are also making labels for our limited edition beaded yarn. According to one of our spinners this yarn is made of an "awesome fiber blend [that] felt like butter." Can't get much softer than that! And it looks amazing too! See for yourself!
We have one more treat in store for you! How about $3.00 off your admission to Rhinebeck? Sounds good? Just save and print this coupon and present at the gate when you arrive!
We can't wait to see everyone this Saturday and Sunday! Come by our booth in Building B Space 4, say "Hi!", and check out all of the wonderful things we have waiting for you at the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival this year!
We're just a couple of bead chicks who found fiber and came over to the dark side. It's OK though, we brought cookies :)
