When it rains, it pours. A large sum was drained from the Paypal account (so I am changing everything, and I mean everything. Everything.) I am clearing that up as fast as can be. About 10 orders are affected, which I of course need to conclude. I have turned off eBay sales for the interim.
I will have a different, secure merchant card charge processing service up and running early this week, for phone orders only.
I need to transfer merchant processor, so actually, please do not purchase anything on this site using the purchase button. Again, I hope to have this in order this coming week.
A family member's surgery recommended for a Boston hospital will be scheduled this coming week, and I will proceed with that in mind. And more, of course.
I would certainly hope to not sit out this holiday season, and trust that all will work out in due course. Have the best of holiday seasons.
There is never a good time for anything like all of this.

Returns for fibers and small items (hand cards, bobbins, dyes) are 14 days and money back or merchandise credit, but I can be flexible. Most equipment such as spinning wheels and drum carders are not returnable once opened/used. It is hard to get some of the items back into the box, and some dealer rules maintain that returned items can only be sold as new, so therefore, they must be new and unused. We work with manufacturers, shipping insurance, warranty, and in some cases our own personal warranty to resolve any issues by replacing parts as needed.

Music to spin by and relax? My other hobby.....
Bill Mutschler created an award winning multimedia slide show for 1980's cult dance band Experimental Products, which won an International Film and TV Festival - NYC Bronze medal. In the 90s, I produced a live Video-CD set for keyboardist Patrick Moraz (of Yes and the Moody Blues), a DVD was re-released through Voiceprint Records - UK.
In August 2004, as Northern Lights eXperience, recorded his own ambient/electronica and dance CD.
In 2009, I joined up with old pals and bandmates from Again&Again&Again to add a keyboard part for the recording "Forgiven". In October 2012, 9 songs (over one hour) for a new CD/music collection are ready and awaiting video work. Songs will be posted to NL-X.com for free download.They range from electronic to ambient, but if you like the style they can be spun to.
I swears that someday I will again make Vermont Spindles. Lots (and I mean LOTS) of wood on hand and I get more efficient in running Copper Moose even as it continues to grow. When a miracle happens, the entire website will be redone.
