Hen Happy, July 2012

Meet Goldie and Comet, our new hen coop addition. They are Golden Comets, about 5 months old and giving us two brown pullet eggs every day. They are part Anglophile with their UK flags waving in the breeze to ward off hawks and owls. Very gentle and so much fun to watch. The previous hens are happy at their foster home.

Summer Time, 2012 Hometown Exploration



It is always exciting to discover a business right in your own hometown that relates to fabric started by Bethanne Knudson and Stephen Michelson. The Oriole Mill is just that new textile mill with quality as it's goal. Our Professional Textile Artist group were honored to have a personal tour of the mill by Kelly Gassert. The machinery was awesome, large and being run by highly skilled operators. The results are amazing jacquard woven fabrics that use linen, wool and Egyptian cotton. Look for them on line with a store very soon and learn more about this business at www.theoriolemill.com  or phone 828-693-5500
