If you're looking for all the updates from our critters and fiber arts, it's at our new page, Havencroft Farm.
We're in the process of rebranding our fiber arts/farm business. I've had sheep and goats since 1982 and had my fiber arts business since 1987. After decades of doing shows and renaissance festivals, we are concentrating more on being on the land. We bought Havencroft in 2009. Shawn kept our farm name from Colorado, Laffing Horse, for his business. I kept my Common ...Threads business name. But it does get confusing, so, after much discussion, we are putting it all under the Havencroft banner. My etsy Store is now Havencroft Farm and I'm stocking it back up with all the shawls and rugs I've been weaving and the yummy yarns off my spinning wheel.
I've got lots of new pics of the goats and sheep and 'pacas on the Havencroft Farm page, so check it out.

I bought yarn and 2 rugs at the Arkansas Christmas Craft Show. I have already woven the yarn into a really cool shawl and I absolutely love the rugs, which are in front of the fireplace. Can't wait t...o see Jeannette at another craft show! See More

I'm working on class material for my upcoming Weaving Experience Weekend at the Wildflower Bed & Breakfast On the Square and enjoying the snow out the window. I remembered this video from this spring. I do love to get together with folks interested in exploring creativity with fiber.

Wasn't to sure when I started, but I really like how this shawl turned out.

Newest shawl started. Cotton, merino, rayon, and sparklies. My goal is to complete a shawl every two weeks. At least through the winter.

Home-grown hand-dyed alpaca. The colors don't show well here. Can't wait to see how it drapes.

I love the effect when a dye "breaks" like on the wool between the two white mohairs.

A year's worth of work, dyeing, spinning, weaving, tying and love is about to wrap its new owner's shoulders. Cinnamon's lilac Jacob sheep wool plied with Lavender's hand dyed mohair. Seven foot. Hand tied full fringe.
