Ahhhhhhh!!! The Holiday Rush!!!

Tis the season!!!

This has been a wonderful year so far and the holidays have just started. We have had several shows this year and I'm happy to say that the last two completely blew my mind!!! It has simply amazed me at how more and more people are buying handmade. I'm not just talking about people who create but, the public as a whole. This truly is wonderful news!!!

We are done with shows for this year so I'm hoping to update this blog again on a weekly basis. For right now I just wanted to share some photos:) That's the best part anyway, right? :)
Peach Fizz:) Mmmmmmmmm!!! Go Urs!!!
Root beer Float!!! Mmmmmmm!!! Go Urs......ummmm....I'm noticing a pattern here;)
Jewels:) For someone special, I'm sure;)
Some of the yarn out on display:)

Revision

We have a revised company vision, really that is a good thing. "Where the people have no vision, they perish." There has been so much going on in the month of October that I really don't know where to start. Perhaps I should just sum it up........'Business is good!!!'. There. That aught to do it.

In the next couple of months there will be some changes to Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio's main site to reflect some of the changes that have been taking place internally. Some of the pages will be changed and moved around. Please, by no means, consider the fact that we are changing a bad thing. It's just that we are growing and need to move things accordingly.

In February we will be one year on line and I'm happy to say that it has been a wonderful year!!! Next year will be even better. The lack of posting in the blog is due to time restraints at this time of the year that so many crafters are familiar with. Shows, supplies and demand, the change of weather, school schedules, etc all hold us back from keeping the world at our fingertips. Instead we concentrate on what is important and keep our eyes on the goal.

Most of the hand woven items are in galleries and boutiques right now and not posted for sale online. Items will be listed when in the studio as I don't like having them in two places at once........makes sense, right? If there is something that you have seen for sale and no longer see it, don't hesitate to ask.

Ok. Now for the fun stuff:) I wish I had time to list all of the pictures of things that have sold!!! That would be fun:) Instead, I would like to show some of the items that are currently for sale. Let's start with some hand spun yarn.




And of course.........the latest weaving project:

This is a picture of the weaving process for a shibori shawl in rayon on the loom. This shawl has since been removed and the fringe twisted. I will begin gathering the supplemental weft picks tonight. More pictures to come:)
