Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and view this video. Mark is in the process of teaching me how to use each of the calls in our shop. I don’t think I have enough air in my lungs for all of this! It amazes me that you can make sounds that will bring a deer into shot range with just a couple of quick blows through a call. This is truly a skill that takes time to acquire! I can make almost any call make noise but to produce a realistic sound that doesn’t make the deer turn and run is going to take some time. Thankfully Mark is a patient teacher.

Mary Egbert has done a great job over the years to bring together some of the best fiber artists from around the world to offer their unique fiber to the Spinning Box. Each box is an adventure and I’ve learned to spin many new fibers that I would not have tried except that they came to me in my box and packaged in a way that I was not intimidated by them. I spun my first hemp from the spinning box! The artist had blended it with wool so I wasn’t stressed….I know how to spin wool! Sometimes the color combinations light a fire under me! It makes me want to jump up and spin.
If you’ve never gotten a box from thespinningbox.com – click the link below and get yours next month!!! FIESTA:
Happy Spinning from Kerry
ps….look for some of my fiber next month!
Our home was built in 1870. It has withstood floods, hurricanes, snow storms and tornadoes but as an older home it is prone to certain problems. Most problematic recently has been our plaster ceilings. Over the years one or another has fallen in on us so when the ceiling in my wool room started to sag we decided to remodel prior to catastrophe. Can you imagine and attic full of debris, dirt and insulation mixed with wool and yarn?
This has not been an easy time for our business as I’ve had to put everything from two rooms into one room that is half the size. Our contractor did a great job at keeping the mess at a minimum but I also decided to have the downstairs repainted so we’ve been so limited in what we could do and where we could be but alas our adventure is almost complete!
The demo is completed and the remodel has begun! Next week paint!!!! This has been a trying experience but we are nearing the end and the beginning will be great. We’re moving the fiber room and creating a space just for all the children who come in and out of our home – 8 grandchildren and all their friends.
Soon we’ll have pictures of the completed project and I can’t wait because once done we are debuting a new product!!! Designer roving!!!
