And we thought Steadfast Fibers was gone...!

Well that lovely dyed yarn from Steadfast Fibers with the matching mohair that we thought was no longer, is back. The new owner of this lovely duo is Paulette Francouer from Canada. She is doing the dyeing and has pretty much the same colorways. They are very pretty! Come see them in the window. We have them hanging on a 'tree'. Paulette uses Brown Sheep Lambs Pride for the wool so the yardage is great at 190yds and the Mohair as far as I recall is from Louet which has a fabulous look and feel. These 2 wonderfully colorful yarns compliment each other nicely. I made a 'lace' pattern scarf out of the teal and it came out very nice. It will be hanging near the 'tree' so you can see how the varigations look knit up.

Where's Joe? Fashion Show tonight

Ok, so I tried to put the South West Trading logo here so you all would recognize it but apparently it's illegal. So...I wanted to let you all know that the SWTC co-owner will be here in the shop tonight with all his wares. Joe has a fashion show planned and you all get to be the models. Try one some great items and let him know how you feel about his products then I buy what you like! It's easy. Not to mention fun, there will be wine and cheese! So come on down and hang out with us tonight starting at 7 pm.
