NOTE: Progress on the real, official SpinningFiber.com website is proceeding at a snail's pace. We have simply "highjacked" this old site until we can do something, well, modern, that we non-techie types can figure out. Shopify, or a new store-building "drag and drop" site that was recommended to us just last night. I think HTML is an abbreviate for Hades Trained Monkey Labor. What can I say, I'm not a geek. I've got a son and a husband for that.....
Meanwhile... I really love my cow. One brave chicken, Lucy, managed to get past the vigilant bovine to reach the grain, hay, and corn nibbles in our barn.
I can still be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, checking that address for questions, follow-up, warranties, etc. I'm working to shift my personal email to a gmail address. I will gradually phase the coppermoose address out of use (close to being cleared!), but it will dump into my Mac Mail program as long as I keep Charter as my ISP, probably quite some time.
New business, I will forward it over to the Gals-in-charge.
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.

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.

Upper left: Bella, New Year's Eve (not to fear, her pasture will be set up in the Spring, and she gets plenty of romping time. Just yesterday, I ran around the yard and her and the goats followed me on laps.
Middle: 2 easily visible of our "adopted" three wild turkeys that circle around several times a day. They help spread out the barn hay in the two composte heaps. Rear and side view of Dukey and Tommy.
Upper right: Fluffy, the giant rooster. Part rooster, part Godzilla. (Note domestic turkey size in upper right.)
Lower right: Milo (left) (Monkey-man; as his facial hair has grown in -- he looks like Planet of the Apes, also from my favorite Travelling Willburies song), Goatis (formerly Otis, on the right). Otis received my Special High Intensity Training for rambunctious goats, and is now well-behaved.
So cold these days, all the animals get free range romping time morning and before dusk, then back in the barn. Bill has built Bella's luxurious pen, sans door. It is currently too frigid to work on the goat's pens. Large pasture for Bella and the goats ready to be set up in the spring, or when the ground is unfrozen (April- May at this rate).
