The Rest of the Basket From the 2008 East Mountain Fiber Farm & Studio Tour


This great basket -a hit with felines and human.



Two gift cards - yummm!



This beautiful cutting board. There was no information as to where it is from. It's finely crafted and smooth as silk.

Fabulous Alpaca Socks Natural Fiber Creations by Enchanted Sky Alpacas

Milagro Moon's always exquisite Alpaca yarn and FABULOUS Soap. If you all haven't used this soap -you are missing out.

Handspun Jacob yarn from Deb Haden at Cuesta Farm. I think ...Sorry, I'm just not sure! It's gorgeous, though.

Beautiful Mohair and Wool in a teal-y, gray color from Gayle Bone at Square Hole Ranch,
McIntosh, NM. gogobone59@q.com on the label. Handspun and dyed.


Yarn and Angel from Bethe Orrell at Good Fibrations.
Hand dyed. Grown from her sheep and goats and spun by hand.


Mohair to spin from - I don't remember! Oh, No! And there was more, I spun some up already.

And last but not least - a camel down filled pot holder - wonderful!
From Camel- Lot, I believe.

I won't scare you with the picture of me in the Sun hat that was included. The hat's great - the picture was too scary.

If I missed something or someone in these last two posts, I apologize!

This year's Tour is scheduled for 5/30/09. If you haven't been on the tour you must not miss it this year. It's a short drive to Edgewood to Good Fibrations to pick up a Tour map and then two days' worth of fun driving in the country and seeing the farms and animals. The weather should be cooler than Albuquerque and it's a family and children friendly event. All the stops are free to look although 'most everyone has products to sell. There are a few stops that will have food and drinks, but take water with you anyway.

Dress for walking in mountain desert terrain. Comfortable clothes and shoes.

Jeannie -- I live in Albuquerque, teach at UNM (part time) and want to learn to knit! I see you're teaching a class in Continuing Ed, but of course it's late to enroll, and I'll be out of town this weekend.

Do you offer 1 on 1 lessons? Thanks, Paula Blacher

Yes, Paula, I can do one on one lessons. Just let me know anytime you want to learn something new. The best way to reach me is at Napoli coffee shop on Saturdays from 1-3PM.

Come by any Saturday and we can talk. Thanks!
