Bellefeathers! 16 April 2008

Taxes are done, fibers are rolling back from the mills, and spring cleaning is progressing ~~ there's even a hint of Spring in the air ~~ Yay!

If you haven't checked new items, I'm happy to announce the California Variegated Mutant Sampler ... it has an ounce each of natural heathery CVM Top just back from Zeilinger's, rich brown CVM/Mahogany (my own llama!) 70/30 roving just back from Stonehedge, Three Bags Full's own Carnations From Steve ~ a CVM/silk/silk noil blend, and just back from Morro, delightful pin-drafted natural grey CVM roving (only available in the sampler!).

Also I've restocked Natalie Spindles (wheee) and the favorite miniature sock blockers, in baltic plywood and exotics.

In an if you can't beat them, join them moment, I've listed almost my entire inventory of books (54 titles!) from The Bellwether on Amazon; almost all are low price, many below my wholesale payment ... so grab a deal and help me clear the shelves! If you want to order there and the regular website, please note it on your regular website order and I'd be happy to combine shipping and provide a total combined shipping amount. I plan to continue stocking core books to be able to offer them to new spindlers and spinners moving forward ... and have several non-ISBN books (like the Nalbinding series) that I'll continue to carry as well!

For those of you who missed the first round of Ring Your Bells! The Bellwether's Fabulous Fiber Club, I'm happy to let you know that I've checked inventory, talked to Joan about fiber, and will be able to open 8 more slots Monday April 21st for the four months remaining in the first club session. They'll be available on the website Monday at 9 a.m. Pacific Time. Details should be available there later today. We've had great fun with the first month, and I've just shipped out the second month to the current members - yay!

If you haven't checked out the Felting section, be sure to see the great kits from Crosspatch Creations and The Bellwether! For Needlefelters, Machine felters, Crocheters, and more!
