Sutter's Gold 'n Fleece February/March 2010
Winter is a beautiful time here in the north woods of Wisconsin. It is cold, but we've had much sun and lovely blue sky.  Also, the cold is an excellent reason for knitting/crocheting.  It's easy to stay warm with cozy mittens, socks, sweaters, afghans, etc. - Keep those fingers working. 
The shop is very quiet this time of year. We try to stay  open as usual Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 - 4.  However, it's a good idea to call first and check if you are making a special trip (715-79-7634).
If you have wanted to learn some new technique this is an excellent time to call and set up a time - Time is plentiful!
Enjoy the season...Liz, Claire and Linda (who is in Arizona basking in the sun)
