2017 Preview and Happy Holidays

"Shady Spot"
Happy Holidays,

After a beautiful, long Autumn...Winter has settled in here on the northern prairie! Over the weekend we got hit with a snow storm and this morning as I write to you, we are in the deep freeze at -6°F

2017 marks the 30th Anniversary of
L. J. Fibers at The Wooly Red Rug...

and lots of exciting things are on the horizon...

First up is the introduction of the 2017 Annual Rug Project...
I've just updated the website with ordering info for
Shady Spot ~ The 2017 LJFibers Annual Rug Project...
my adaptation of a mid-18th century needlework wallet,
featuring two ponies under a fanciful, floral tree...
the finished rug is 26" x 36"
Shady Spot is a THREE Part Project...
kits are available as Cut or Un-Cut Wool...
a mix of my beautiful hand-dyed and as-is textured wools!
Part One will ship in January!
Click HERE to visit the webpage for more info and to order.

Next is the anticipation of Wool Works™ Magazine

Print and Digital Subscriptions are available on their website...
and will also be available in my studio/shop and on the website!
Look for my article and projects...Hearts & Tulips...
in the Premier Issue

And in April...I will be the guest teacher at
From Our Hands & Hearts
~ Spring Creative Retreat~
April 24 thru 27, 2017
Yellow Springs, Ohio
I'm so excited that Rebekah & Lori Ann have invited me to join them...more details to come in January but for now you can visit their website at www.fromourhands.com
