Nora, our naughty turkey hen. She has returned from spending most of her time in the woods. We suspect she had a clutch of (non-fertile) eggs.
However, I just found a clutch in my rows of peas... which explains why they are a bit crushed.

This may change to a low, refundable deposit on future postings. But for now, we are holding wheels with no deposit -- as we know that life events happen as they will.
SpinningFiber, Inc. is up and going. We have a mountain of fibers, plus great wheel and spinning, weaving equipment and supplies from the best: Schacht, Schacht-Reeves, Majacraft, Strauch, Ashford, Louet, Ashland Bay, and fibers sourced world-wide. In the future we will add fibers we have not seen on sale in the U.S.
We are only using this acquired site until such time that SpinningFiber.com can be built from the ground up... with modern website features! It's a big job! SpinningFiber.com does exist, mostly as a welcome home page. Surprisingly, or not so much, we are technophobes. I'm proud to not know how to turn on the TV.
Thank you so very much during this period of new beginnings!
Temperatures are dropping. Days are getting shorter.
Teressa and Jeanette,
802-427-3319 (home/business); 802-274-7559 (cell, text).
I can still be reached at email@example.com, checking that address for questions, advice, follow-up, warranties, etc. If it is new business, I will forward it over to the Gals-in-charge.
Someone told me that anything in the past is a "story". Copper Moose is now such a story. I have many great stories and wonderful customers from around the globe, referrals, vendors. There was the convergence of many different "vectors" at the end of last year, leading to new paths. A family-health-work balance that was due.
A new story began; as I decided to move on, a phoenix arose, one with a tighter focus than Copper Moose. No eBay madness, etc. That was insane. Teressa and the silent sage Jeanette (when she speaks up, you know it) are SpinningFiber, Inc. A less frantic endeavor, by design. They have occasional access to my brain (such as it occasionally is) for a while.
I again would like to thank everyone I have had the good fortune to work with during the 12+ years.
With light, warmth, and all my heart,
Spinning fiber and fibers, Spinning Wheel, Drum Carder, and Loom photography and artwork in this site copyright 2014 SpinningFiber Inc. unless they are images supplied by distributor (Ashford, Louet, Majacraft Schacht, Strauch), then they are copyright their respective source and used with permission.
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.

Jezibel, born July 17th, joined us 5 days later; an early anniversary gift. Wood represents strength, solidity and warmth – and is the traditional material of the fifth anniversary. I wanted a cow. She is all of those characteristics.
She's had a lot of fun being a bucking bronco in the yard. Being a nuisance in plucking out beet leaves from the garden, but not eating them. She loves to play. Between her and the turkeys, I wonder what kind of garden I'll end up having.
Lettuce, beans, tomatoes, one japanese eggplant have been picked. My edamame plant/bush is growing like crazy, but so far, no edamame!!
However, I love animals and they are providing fantastic "animal therapy."
My husband comments that he has never seen me so happy.
Dear Mom. Please remove all fencing in the garden that the peas and beans grew on prior to sending me in to clean out the end-of-season vegetation. Thank you. Your goat.
