Wine and Cheese Event
This fall we are thrilled to announce that we will be stocking the "Juniper Moon" line of commercial yarns and that the founder of Juniper Moon, Susan Gibbs, will be at the shop on September 23, 2011. She will be talking to us about how she got started as a shepherd and the inspiration behind her her new line of luxury yarns. We will have lots of yarn and pattern books available and Susan is bringing lots of samples garments for us to try.
Come join us for this great event. Space is limited so get your ticket today.
Here is a little excerpt from her website on how she got started.
"Not so long ago, I left my job as a network news producer in New York City in search of a “more authentic life.” I was pretentious enough to actually use those words. Out loud. To strangers.
A few months later, a chance encounter with Storey’s Guide to Raising Sheep in a California bookstore changed my life in one amazing moment- I was born to be a shepherd. One year and many, many books later, I purchased a farm, five sheep and my first livestock guardian dog. Every day since has been an adventure.
When I’m not working sheep, I can be found dyeing yarn, directing my three new commercial yarn lines (to be released Fall 2011!), and photographing my flock. Spare time is kind of at a premium right now, but when I have some, I like to spend it reading, cooking for the people I love and playing with my dogs."
