ALPACAS IN THE GLEN
Alpacas’s in the Glen is a family owned Alpaca Farm. We started raising Alpacas in 2005 so our disabled son would have daily chores to do and because we have a love of animals. Alpacas were safe. friendly and cute. We could raise them and harvest their fiber with out having to harm the Alpacas. We purchased our first two alpacas, a Suri and Huacaya both males and quickly fell in love. Six months later we added a pregnant female with a cria at her side. We have since grown from that to as many as 68 at one point. We also raise Sheep and have raised and rescued Great Pyrenees.
We have been involved with Showing Alpacas for 13 years and I have taken classes for sorting and grading fiber and for the last 4 years have managed a fiber mill. I was a part of the Empire alpaca Association for 7 1/2 years.

Melinda Vansant & Jennifer Vansant, Housatonic, Ma
Industrial felt has been the most obvious choice of fabrics to work with. My designs are influenced and determined by the fabric itself, its density and thickness control how it can be worked, how the bags can be constructed, and simplicity is the intended result.
Crisp clean lines and edges, classic, elegant, timeless, durable and long lasting. All products are made in grey felt, leather handles are fastened with rivets. Needle felted circles of hand-dyed fiber can be added for ‘bursts of color’ and create a design element of their own.
Julia Hilbrandt, Rhinebeck NY

Olivier and Patricia and their two daughters join a passion for fiber with a passion for breeding beautiful, high quality alpacas. They started their alpaca farm in the Hudson Valley with a search for what to do with their six acres of land in upstate New York. The beauty of alpacas and the luxurious fiber they produced presented an ideal business opportunity for the Gillotins, building on their skill and experience with textiles. As both Olivier and Patricia come to the alpaca business with a strong professional connection to the textile and fashion industries.
My dolls started from humble beginnings after I went through a life-changing divorce… I found myself creating these lovely dolls gave me the inspiration to bring history to life and share my talents with young and old by teaching them how to sew. Out of that grew the emergence of a traditional sewing circle 😁many wonderful things evolved through the passion of repurposing modern and vintage materials and using a variety of fibers from flax line, cotton yarn, bamboo yarn to alpaca roving, merino wool.
THE SHEEPY SHIRE
I always loved creating things when I was younger, but I couldn’t seem to find something that could keep my interest. Then I found my first creative love – quilting. I loved everything about it; the colors, patterns, fabric, the process, and especially the feeling of being able to wrap the finished product around my shoulders.
Quilting, however, isn’t very portable so when it was time to go off to college I had to find something new. I had knit some in the past but it never quite stuck. It wasn’t until I came across the fiber arts community of Ravelry.com that the obsession started. I have gotten seemingly limitless amounts of inspiration from that site and have learned so much about different crafts and techniques that I never knew existed. It still amazes me just how much you can do with wool. It is a wonderful feeling to slip on a pair of cozy socks and a warm sweater that you made yourself on a cold winter day. I am eager to keep learning new techniques and expanding my fiber arts knowledge. I’ve recently dabbled in needle felting and weaving on a rigid heddle loom, which I am also enjoying.
You set a bunch of good things in motion when you buy from CeCe’s Wool.

We offer Cotswold Sheep, Cotswold Fiber, including fleeces, yarn, roving and locks from our sheep born and raised in Richmondville, New York in Schoharie County.
My Interests for creating one-of-a-kind Vixen wearable art include the healing power of stones, metals, wire, fibers and color. Recently I learned techniques for needle and wet felting wool and decided to bring them together with the look of free form crochet, wearable art garments, scarves and wraps and chainmaille and metals in my shop. Each piece is crafted with the idea of texture, shape, color and comfort existing in perfect harmony so that the designs are as joyful to wear as they are to perceive.
It is my ultimate desire that my wearers embrace the power of the feminine and their own strong and beautiful spirits! The pieces are hand made by me with love and care, and it is my hope that they will make every wearer feel and look beautiful.

This joy has made me more passionate about spreading this feeling to those who live around the world with my unique hand-dyed yarn.
There is only one worker bee in this company, and that is me! Unless you count my #1 fiber festival sherpa (my dad). I hand-dye all of the products that are sold under the name “Knits4Comfort” in the comfort of my 2nd bedroom closet (seriously!).

STITCHED BY JESSALU
When I was little, I used to spend lots of time at my maternal grandmother’s house. It was during that time that she taught me how to sew quilts – in fact, I still have a few quilts she gifted to me, one of them made from different fabric she had used to make me clothing while I was growing up.
