Postcards from Wisconsin

Maureen and Kate headed to Jefferson, Wisconsin earlier this week to bring a little bit of Putney, Vermont to the Midwest.  They are participating in the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival that runs through this weekend. They left the Spinnery on Tuesday morning and headed west.  They have been sharing photos on our Facebook page […]


We are getting excited about brioche

November is quickly approaching, and we are starting to get excited about this fall’s Knitter’s Weekend.  It is the perfect time of year to be in New England enjoying the fall color and the crisp air.  The golden light is magical and we hope that you can come and experience it for yourself.

… and the fun continues!

Last weekend’s I-91 Shop Hop was a hoot!  It was great fun meeting new friends and introducing them to what we do here at the Spinnery.  Many of our first-time visitors didn’t realize that we make everything that we have available in the shop.  From fleece to skein we do it all right here! As […]


Community Knit Night

One of our favorite aspects of working with fiber is the wonderful community that can congregate when yarn is involved.  Knitting is always more fun with company.  Many friends and local fiber enthusiasts have asked about knitting with us more regularly than our twice annual Knitter’s Weekends, and we are thrilled to announce that we […]

The Spring Art Fair at Squam

Maureen and I piled into the car last weekend and headed to New Hampshire to join the fun of the Squam Art Fair and the Ravelry Revelry.  It was wonderful fun to mingle with crafters who had been at the camp all weekend taking workshops, making friends, finding fresh inspiration, and glowing with new skills. […]


You’re invited!

All of us can agree that when it comes to buying yarn, there is no substitute for getting to see and touch the skeins in person.  Brochures and computer monitors rarely do the colors justice.  And getting a true sense of the feel of the yarn is essential. We think that the same can be […]


A Sneak Peak into our Spring Knitters’ Weekend

Spinnery founders Claire Wilson and Libby Mills began taking our wares to Stitches events and fiber festivals years ago and realized that doing these kinds of shows was fun and good business, but wondered how it would be to have knitters come to us. So, for more than 20 years we have been inviting folks […]


Fiber Festival Season!

Fiber festivals are a feast for your senses: seeing what others choose to wear and the colorful yarns, hearing the animals, smelling the “yarn fumes” and touching the fibers! Some fiber enthusiasts like to go in to a fiber event, such as Rhinebeck (a.k.a. the New York Sheep & Wool Festival), and see which yarn […]

Tucking In 2012

What a year it has been! Here at the Green Mountain Spinnery we are under a blanket of fresh snow and enjoying the calm and quiet that comes between the holidays and New Year’s. We wanted to take a moment to reflect on all that has happened in 2012 and let you know what we […]
