Ideas, ideas, and IDEAS

Shopping the local wholesale market to see what we can find.

Poul’s parents were recently visiting us here in our Asian home. His mother, Lisa Ann, is a fiber artist with many years of gorgeous creations under her belt. They arrived from the airport and within hours our home had turned into a fiber playground…balls of yarn, splays of needles, notions and patterns and at least a half-dozen works in process. It’s amazing what happens with inner obsessions when they come into contact with another person’s inner obsession…chaos, synergy, and some truly great ideas in our case!

In addition to two new patterns soon to be available with Reywa yarns, late one night over needles and cocktails Lisa Ann and I came up with a great new product idea. I don’t want to give it away just yet…we are still fine-tuning it. But let’s just say it is something every knitter could use, and something that our physical location here in Asia would let us source very cheaply…which means we can make this product one that exists primarily to raise funds for our child sponsorship program. We are still crunching numbers, but we think that for every one of these products we sell, we will be able put $5 into tuition for children of impoverished Tibetan families. $5 by itself isn’t a lot, but it will add up fast!

We are very, very excited!

    • Thanks Abby…we are pretty excited. It’s hard not to blurb but will hold in in just a little while longer 🙂 Hope you are well!
