Black Sheep



Greetings from Maine.........
Tha lake is frozen now but it's definitely not time for ice-fishing yet!  We're so busy filling mail orders, making ornaments and jewelry and minding our little gift shop, that we hardly have time to notice the shortening days.
Caught in a whiriwind of holiday preparation, we sometimes have to remind ourselves to stop and take stock of what surrounds us. 

Such a different mood when all is static on the surface.  It reminds me that winter is our time to move inward and I'm just a few weeks away from some downtime when I'll have time to spin and knit by the fire.

The last of the water fowl have moved on, or course, even the intrepid mallards, who often linger near the edges of
the ice as it is forming.   Just a stillness now, and sometimes, like this morning, a wintery north wind.

Guestmap drawing winner
Congratulations to  Michelle J., from La Mesa, CA our
November winner!  She will choose a free pair of earrings or one of our Christmas ornaments as her prize.
I invite you to enter our December drawing. Just add your name and comments to our guestmap.  It's always great to hear from you, and we love to see where you're located!
Some parts of the map are pretty crowded, so don't worry about accuracy when you choose a location, but please be sure to tell us your town and state.

Monthly Special
On sale this month, our Partiridge in a Pear Tree ornament, a cute little dangling bird in a frame of pears and leaves.  The ornament is plated with 24K gold for a lasting, heirloom finish and comes with a special decorative hook.  Enjoy this special price when you  order from this page.

We have lots of great gift choices for everyone on your list.

If you're shopping for a knitter, be sure to see our stitch markers and Black Sheep items.  Or choose a kit from our Archives for a ready-made project all set to go.

Or how about a knitting bag?

These are handmade with careful attention to detail.

December news
We have just 2 busy show weekends left.  Please view our show schedule and meet up with us if you're nearby.

We proudly represent over 20 artisans who work in wood, metal, pottery, glass, fabric, paper and photography.

Just in time for the holidays, a new shipment of Soap Rocks has arrived!  These are beautiful in a guest room and always welcome as hostess gifts.

And our shop is fragrant with the scent of 
fir needle candles from Bedrock Tree Farm.

If you'd like to visit our little shop in Maine, come see us Wednesday through Saturday, 10-5. 

On other days I'm often here in the studio behind the shop, and I always put the flag out when I'm here, so if you see it, stop in, we're open!   And please bring in your current knitting project  - I'd love to see what you're working on!

We are also always available by appointment, so please call ahead if you want to visit on an off day. For maps and directions see: or call 800-340-2514. Stop in and see us soon!

Happy Holidays to everyone!
