Tip of the Month
Welcome May, a time for nature to bring beautiful colors back to the North Woods.  We are all looking forward to seeing our seasonal knitters again.  We've been scheduling our spring and summer classes and ordering new stock for the season. Hope to be seeing many of you in the next few months...
Happily Stocking,
Liz Claire and Linda
PS Did anyone loose an expensive Dodge car key this winter? One was found in the driveway.

Tip of the Month
 3/50 Project- What does it mean?  The 3/50 project is a campaign to support  local merchants.  The concept has spread to communities nationwide, and its premise is simple.  First, choose three local independent brick and mortar businesses that you would like to support.  Then spend $50 or more among  those places each month.  If enough people in a town make a pledge, the theory goes, the pooled together funds will prop up mom-and-pop enterprises and help sustain local business districts.  Please check out the web-site, and consider supporting the 3/50 project.  And, of course, make Sutter's Gold 'n Fleece one of your choices.
