Wyeth is now "helping" at our West Paris rental which is badly in need of paint before we can make it available again. This is my Sunday afternoon task. What's yours? ... See MoreSee Less

Wyeth is doing his best Vanna White impression in front of the new (which is really the old - this is how it started out) wool configuration in the Maine studio. There are now three fat quarters of everything I stock on the shelves here, however, that is a great deal less than I was keeping on the shelves for the past several years. I have a huge tote and a half that has been removed, and, of course, there are always bolts stored upstairs. There is a method to my madness. It's a reality that the physical studio is not a profit center for this enterprise. Very little is sold out of it and it mostly serves as a location for the Tuesday hooking group. That is a social situation we maintain for the benefit of those who attend and the craft's heritage of gathering and hooking together. Removing that excess inventory from that space, where it is really only taking up space, is going to make it easier for me to do what I've been needing to do for a while: maintain a separate inventory for all of our online customers in all fifty states *and* have wool at the ready in totes to take to shows. So, if you're an online customer who has been frustrated by the lack of wool on our Etsy and Shopify sites, take heart. I and my able virtual assistant, Paul McCoy, will be getting a lot more wool up as this year winds up and the next begins. The obstacle heretofore has been the inventory tracking required for all the sale points, and this is the start of solving that. ... See MoreSee Less
