It's hot! Even though we stay about ten degrees cooler here on the mountain than downtown Asheville, it's hot. Early mornings find me dragging 300 feet of hose up and down the slopes to give the tomatoes, peppers and potatoes a drink to carry them through the heat of the day. Then it's into air-conditioned comfort to get ready for the Friends and Fiberworks Summer Retreat coming up in two weeks. I'll be there teaching silk dyeing and small felted vessels and Kristen will be teaching a drop spindle class. I need to take that; she's a great teacher and she'll be using some of our beautiful wool batts in the class. We will also be vending. We'll have a full line of wools, silks, pre felts and supplies so stop by and see us. It's always a great fun weekend out of the heat!
Back to dreams of the cool, clear waters of Lake Superior- home of the best stones ever!
October 1- we launch the new website!
