News From The Bellwether ...

Do you have a name for our blogged newsletter (these entries, tagged TBW in our Categories)? If so, email it to me or post it in the comments here, for an entry. The chosen name will get 1 ounce of Crosspatch Creations or Three Bags Full fiber. See the entries so far. What fun!

I managed to post the new Crosspatch Creations and Three Bags Full colors, my favorite of this last batch had to be Crimson Shadows. Ooooh. And I know Joan is coming out with a complimentary triple-play to this one soon. Can't wait!

I did a little re-arranging and picture-ifiying of the store's home page, too. What do you think of it?

Most of the last week has been spent battling email problems (sigh) and finding out about blogging. There's great stuff out there! Speaking of which, let me toot my own horn with sightings of "The Bellwether" on other peoples' blogs ... and encourage you to blog about us too, with this special offer:

Crosspatch Creations wonderful fibers, along with some lovely fibers from one of my favorite other fibers to spin, Grafton Fibers!

Just helping out an email inquiry about spinning terms.

A Cascade Cougar Spindle.

Eeek! a hook that came out of a Natalie (she does otherwise adore the spindle, she tells me!) ... we worked with Judy to figure out the best solution for her, which may not be what everyone wants (a thicker hook).

A fabulous sweater from last year's California Red roving.

And two overseas blogs:
A Natalie, a Russian silk spindle, and gorgeous yarns (in French) (machine-translated to English).

Romney/Finn pin-drafted roving spun-up (page down for the translated description).

A title for the newsletter could be: "The Bell Tells " or how about
"Sheep Tales Monthly (or weekly)" from Bellwether depending upon how often the newsletter is sent out.
