Nora, our naughty turkey hen. We found her after many weeks roosting on an infertile clutch in the middle of the garden, camoflauged. I never knew that a turkey could hiss.
December 16, 2014.
Christmas is coming, and my hens still venture around from the outside back of the barn to help me tidy up cracked corn, and all-stock animal feed. Agway and Morrions feeds, as well as trusty Google, have not given any reason as to why all of the four legged critters find layer pellet so tasty. Not to fear, the non-poultry only wish for it.... except....
I've had to shoo Tommy and Dukey out of the coop when filling the chicken feeder. Time does fly. I "adopted" two Billy goats (Otis--now Goatis, and Milo) a month or so ago, and am very successful in getting them to "play nice". But, Bella simply won't have it if I go to pet one of them. She is my beautiful cow.
Movers came today to shuffle furniture out of the barn, and to various rooms. They also brought the wood for my husband to build well-ventilated animal pens in our ancient barn.
Happy holidays to all.
We have a mountain of fibers, plus great wheel and spinning, weaving equipment and supplies from the best: Schacht, Schacht-Reeves, Majacraft, Strauch, Ashford, Louet, Ashland Bay, and fibers sourced world-wide. In the future we will add fibers we have not seen on sale in the U.S.
We are only using this acquired site until such time that SpinningFiber.com can be built from the ground up... with modern website features! It's a big job! (And going very, very slowly. Life is full.) SpinningFiber.com does exist, essentially just a welcome home page. Surprisingly, or not so much, we are technophobes. I'm proud to not know how to turn on the TV.
Thank you so very much during this new beginning, and soon enough, the New Year.
Teressa and Jeanette,
802-427-3319 (home/business); 802-432-8873 (Text Free phone number to my tablet). My cell phone is lost somewhere at SquareTrade, after already having made one round trip--returning with the same problem it left with. The universe giveth and taketh away. After initial withdrawal symptoms, I'm getting quite comfortable in not having it.
We had very slight technical difficulties with our Intuit merchant processing -- It affected 3 purchases over 6 months. It has been straightened out (somehow they had two different accounts for little old us). Apologies again to those 3 fiber buyers.
I can still be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, checking that address for questions, advice, follow-up, warranties, etc. New business, I will forward it over to the Gals-in-charge.
Someone told me that anything in the past is a "story". Copper Moose is now such a story.
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.

Jezibel (Bella), born July 17th, joined us 5 days later; an early anniversary gift. Wood represents strength, solidity and warmth – and is the traditional material of the fifth anniversary. I wanted a cow. She is all of those characteristics, and, no surprise, my personality.
When have you ever seen a cow going dashing down the driveway to "say hello" to cyclists? Galloping around the house with glee? She's.... stubborn too, and can hold a grudge. Well, they are benefits, not features, right? Woman's perogative. And, we looked it up, "curious cow" indeed!
However, I love animals and they are providing fantastic "animal therapy." I love my cow. My husband comments that he has never seen me so happy. He _is_ learning to look down as he walks around the yard. My eldest didn't......
Dear Mom. Please remove all fencing in the garden that the peas and beans grew on prior to sending me in to clean out the end-of-season vegetation. Thank you. Tommy, your "special" goat. (They were both "returned" goats.... Tommy was the runt of the litter. Not only are all my animals special, they are all "special" as well.)
