As you can tell most of the stuff for the fiber show is now done. I just have to pick up some zip ties and have Mom finish the Cotswold. I think she is going to try and work on it some tomorrow ...
Anyway, I then set out to see what I could get done for funding to get to Louisiana. I have raised the fees for the horse stall and the entry fees. Now to get the Vet bill, health papers, horse shots, hotel, gas and food covered. I worked on getting the one horse trailer back up and running too ... I take it in Monday to a guy to see if we can get the axle fixed or if it has to be replaced. The two horse trailer is to old to make a trip that far so it isn't an option.
When Dad got home we put two of the window units in so we can finally have some A/C in the house.... Oh, wait ... You guys really don't want to know about the day to day stuff I did today do you?? Oh that is right you came to see what Yesterday's news was.... Okay I'll get to it ..
I have made a few changes this year to try and make things better with our shares. We have different share payments available, have breed specific rovings as well as changing up the mohair roving blend and knowing more about what you will get for your money .... With that said, It is time to think hard about our Alpaca shares. First, the way it is now no one but spinners can get in on the Alpaca Shares. And all the share holders seems to be happy with that but I want the knitters, crocheters and weavers to be able to get in on the Alpaca Shares too. So I introduce to you our second yarn ... It will be a 70% Alapaca 30% wool blend. The wool will help the yarn have better memory. It will be made of Hope and Jorden and will be natural in color so it will be white. The new shares will be up on the General Store page and will be very limited. As for the spinners we will have Wendi and Charlie sold as raw fiber shares. If I can get all the shares sold I plan on looking into getting a new sire for the herd since we lost Juneau.
Remember we still have the give away going in on ... To get in on it just donate anything you can to help me get to Louisiana, as every dollar counts. At steak is two skeins of my mohair/wool yarn and some extras ...
