NOTE: Progress on the real, official SpinningFiber.com website is proceeding at a snail's pace. We have simply "highjacked" this old site until we can do something, well, modern, that we non-techie types can figure out. Shopify, or a new store-building "drag and drop" site that was recommended to us just last night. I think HTML is an abbreviate for Hades Trained Monkey Labor. What can I say, I'm not a geek. I've got a son and a husband for that.....
Meanwhile... I really love my cow. One brave chicken, Lucy, managed to get past the vigilant bovine to reach the grain, hay, and corn nibbles in our barn. There is some pre-spring growth on the trees, and Bella (my gorgeous cow), and all of the goats have found it. Bill is threatening to sue me.
I can still be reached at email@example.com, checking that address for questions, follow-up, warranties, etc. I am phasing the coppermoose address out of use (close to being cleared!), but it will dump into my Mac Mail program as long as I keep Charter as my ISP–probably some time. Will I stay in Vermont? Go to New Hampshire, North Carolina? Who knows.
New business, I will forward it over to the Gal(s)-in-charge.
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.
• Again&Again&Again was the first band I worked with during my days at "university". I called them during a radio interview whilst I was freelancing at night at a multimedia company. See nl-x.com for my hobbyist exploits. More NL-X to come....
And, although all is forgotten, after the Spring melt occurs.... which would require Spring.... before all is lost to time, mayhap I maketh spindles once again. No one bite on etsy. I realize 99% have forgotten, and it's been......
9 years. You have been mislead before. What am I to do with this heap of exotic wood?

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.

Upper left: Bella, New Year's Eve (not to fear, her pasture will be set up in the Spring, and she gets plenty of romping time. Just yesterday, I ran around the yard and her and the goats followed me on laps.
Middle: 2 easily visible of our "adopted" three wild turkeys that circle around several times a day. They help spread out the barn hay in the two composte heaps. Rear and side view of Dukey and Tommy.
Upper right: Fluffy, the giant rooster. Part rooster, part Godzilla. (Note domestic turkey size in upper right.)
Lower right: Milo (left) (Monkey-man; as his facial hair has grown in -- he looks like Planet of the Apes, also from my favorite Travelling Willburies song. If anyone gets the reference, he does bear a striking resemblance to "the old man in the mountain" that graced New Hampshire for many, many years), Goatis (formerly Otis, on the right). Otis received my Special High Intensity Training for rambunctious goats, and is now well-behaved.
The animals get more and more romping time as the temperatures rise, then back in the barn. Bill has built Bella's luxurious pen, sans door. The first goat pen is done... and it is a lovely space to store hay and grain. (!!!!) Son Cody comments on how sturdy it is. Large pasture for Bella and the goats ready to be set up in the spring (what is that?), or when the ground is unfrozen (May or next year at this rate). Bill recently told me of an 1800 or so "summer that never was" due to a volcanic eruption. OK, so where is the volcano?
