Getting ready for Christmas Markets!


I'll be doing two Christmas markets this year. The first one is at Sapsucker Farms in Brook Park, MN Nov. 18-19th. And the second one is the American Swedish Institute's Julmarknad Dec. 1-3, 2023 in Minneapolis. 

I'm saving ten felt pelts I made from my flock to debut at Julmarknad. They all turned out so well! I've needlefelted the sheep's name and the year of shearing on the back of the pelt. I no longer breed my sheep and the ones who are here are it. So I've decided to commemorate their fleeces in a 2023 collection. Stop in to see them! There are fleeces from Juno, Dolly, Yolanda, Maggie, Maisie, Ingrid, Grettel, Smudge, Blue, and Lester. I did Roxie's fleece too, but I'm going to keep hers. She's getting pretty old for her breed and I must have one to remember her by.

I'll have Skinnfell items (ornaments, muffs, couch throws and chair pads), my full line of handcrafted goat milk soaps, ecoprinted scarves and Tibetan lamb boas. And as always, Sid's family recipe spices Toadspit and Lizard Dust.

  Well, it's April and the sheep have been sheared.  The chicks have arrived in the mail and Easter is behind us already.  Time to start...
