Knitting Sheep for OFFF 2013

Whimsical Ewe is our small business in which flights of fancy are entertained daily.  Where products are ever-changing, according to any silly whim…. and I have LOTS of whims!… while I chase playful ideas and create new items to entertain our customers.  When a customer enters our booth with wide grins and a happy laugh ~ it happens at every show ~ it just makes my day.

I am a Fiber Artist & Wood carver, who discovered the thrill of a wool fleece later a decade ago.   A newspaper photo of Llamas lured me to a local festival to see the critters in the barn.  Afterward, I browsed the canopied booths on the lawn, and the building halls; chatted with vendors and was introduced to spinning wheels and handfuls of glorious, washed wool curls.

Shortly afterward, I belonged to a spinning guild, with monthly meetings to share our love of wool & other fibers.  Learned to dye colors.  Decided to carve a wood handle for my own spinning wheel Hook, and everything bloomed from that point on.  My life was transformed by the joy found in this broad spectrum community of spinners / weavers / knitters / dyers / shepherds / wood carvers /  felt artists and festival staff.  It’s been GLORIOUS!

I am blessed to have a husband keen to participate in “our” business.  We are together at every show.  As a member of our spinning guild and broader fiber community of spin-ins & festivals ~ hubby’s face is equally familiar to our repeat customers and vendor friends.  At home, he helps with any of the myriad tasks necessary to prep for each show, besides setting up & running the booth.  Lucky me, we make a happy team.  We brainstorm new ideas together, usually while exercising at the Ymca.

Drop by our booth anytime and we’ll be glad to meet you too.
