A Word or Two on COPYRIGHTS I wanted to post this so that there isn't any confusion with either my patterns or patterns on my website. In the future I will be more than likely including in the Newsletter patterns that I have either designed or written out. Please repect my copyrights. What I mean by this is DO NOT hand out copies to everyone, people can either sign up for the Newsletter, stop by the shop, or basically let everyone get "their" copy exactly like you did. Thanks :)

Help stop crime against Designers and Authors:
Please respect the copyrights of the Designers and Authors who generously share their talents with you. It is very hard work to design and write patterns and articles, copyright infringement will not be tolerated. I know some people unknowingly infringe copyrights so please do not think that I believe that everyone is bad bad bad, because that is not true. These patterns are from my personal collection and yes I will go as far to say that is is a very rare collection and I simply will not tolerate anyone just doing a copy and paste to sell on a CD, yes these patterns have long ago expired their copyright but because I have scanned them, cleaned them up and actually changed the format the copyright in the form I have it presented to you, belongs to me.

I think a sale is in order, so on Friday August 26th come on in and mention the words "Brown Sheep" and you will get 35% off your entire yarn purchase....YAY I want to apologize for anyone who has tried to come into the parking lot or anyone who has suffered as a result of the construction. It will be great when it is finished but it is just a little tad wee bit agitating and dusty :) I do have a heddle loom, with a stand and it is large, a singer knitting machine with ribber, for sale.
I will now be carrying Universal Yarns, and I have ordered but as of today it hasn't arrived but it's only been a couple of days, hehehehe. Hope to see you on Friday but of course any day is fine.

Whew alot has been going on lately so yes I am very late with this Newsletter but honestly I have felt this past two weeks like the absent minded professor....as always too much to do and so little time. I have a bit of very exciting history to share about Elko County and wool. Some of you may very well know all of this but I figured there might be some who do not or may have wondered about it here it is:
There were alot of sheep in this area and I thought what did they do with all of it ? I did a little bit of research and did not find a wool mill or anything about anyone spinning it for weaving so this led me to our museum where I found out exactly what was done with it. The sheep were sheared, it was loaded into bags, put on the train and sent back east for processing. Which may sound a little bit boring until I was told how much....Ellison Ranching owned 2 percent of Nevada's total sheep. In 1913 an entire train was needed to haul 29,320 wool fleeces that was sold to the Knight Woolen Mill for around $30,000.00 which wasn't a bad amount back then.
It’s here !!!! I have the “Mini Me” pattern book for kids and all the
yarn to got with it. These are soo cute and just in time to get ready
for gifts. And then I have added Patons stretchy socks to the mix it feels soo
nice and a free pattern for knee socks to got with it.The whole Month of October
you will get 15 % off browns, oranges,rust, and reds or basically the very pretty
fall colors (no green is not included sorry) so stop by for best selection.
What is so cute about the "Mini Me" is there is a doll and a teddy bear that
you can make matching sweaters for so they have a doll/teddy bear that matches
what they are wearing.
October 23rd a Saturday, will be open from 12:30 until ? Will be doing a class using the
