I feel so terrible for @abundantearthfiber for the loss of their trailer full of goodies. Preparing and setting up for a festival is such an intensive ordeal as it is but to loose everything is gut wrenching. It’s going to take them awhile to recoup. If anyone wants to help support them please make an online order. Everything they make is so wonderful. ❤️ #Repost @abundantearthfiber with @get_repost ・・・ It has taken me a couple of days to recover from the shock enough to post, but I feel I need to let everyone know what happened to us on Wednesday. Our entire inventory was stolen from a hotel parking lot during our drive down to Stitches West. We had a trailer hitched to our vehicle when we went to bed, and we walked outside in the morning the trailer was gone. We’ve filed all the reports, done all we can do. There is a chance it will be recovered if the thieves aren’t also discerning knitters. No one was harmed. We have each other and we have our creativity. We made everything that was lost, and we can make it again. The full impact of our loss honestly hasn’t hit yet. So, without having anything to show in our booth (which luckily was in our van instead of the trailer), we’ve turned our Stitches West booth into a gallery of images that show the people and places I’ve come to know as a mill owner. We’re asking for support by simply joining our newsletter and placing an order online. We expect it to take about 8 weeks to rebuild the fiber inventory and start fulfilling. Wool Tinctures will be available within a couple weeks. We love our work. We’ll be okay. We couldn’t ask for a better group of people to be surrounded by this week. We are so grateful to be a part of such a warm and supportive community.
