fifteen minutes of fame!

At last, my fifteen minutes of fame has arrived. We made print in the Spring 2013 issue of "Living the Country Life."

No, that's not me on the cover.
Although, I do dress pretty cute in the spring.
Apparently, I didn't slip the photographer enough money.
Our Angora goat, Pierre, got a lot more ink than I did.
And, since you know I won't share my hard copy of the issue with anyone. (Sorry, mom.). You can catch a slideshow with text online.

In other super exciting news, we're spreading ourselves all over the town. You can now find our yarns at the Knit and Knot Yarn Boutique in Bettendorf, Iowa.

We're very  honored to have our handspun yarn right next to other local fibers: Crosswinds Farm/Eldridge, IA (handspun wools) and Caden Moon Alpaca/Tipton, IA (cottage-spun alpaca yarns). Visit with Joy and Little Miles and pick up some local yarn for your next project.

Farm Genevieve yarns are also available at The Yarn Shoppe in Davenport, Iowa. Stop in and see Val, Gail, Bambi, and all their pretty yarns.

The Yarn Shoppe also has handspun yarn from Crosswinds Farm and cottage-spun alpaca yarn from Deitrick's Alpaca Ranch (Prophetstown, IL).

No worries for my online customers. I still will sell online through my Etsy store. In fact, I am spinning for you today. We have not broken up! XOXO. We are also returning to the Iowa City Farmer's Market this year. Opening Day is May 1. Just around the corner.

Good grief. My head is now so big that I won't be able to get into the laundry room or chicken coop!

Luckily, I have my husband to keep me grounded. He was very pleased to see the magazine spread yesterday. He glanced over it, gave it the appropriate amount of attention, then said: Did "Popular Science" come, too?!?!?!

Ah, fickle and fleeting. 


  1. That is SO AWESOME!! I'm going to read the article now!

  2. I can say I knew you before you were famous. Great article. It practically makes me want to start knitting. Notice I say practically... Looking forward to seeing you on the 23rd.
