frey fiber company start up

It's been about 3 months since we started trying to open Frey Fiber Company.  We we've had lots of help from folks, Ashley Martineau of Neauveau Fiber Arts and Spinolution. I found Ashley on Youtube many years ago when she was in her backyard dyeing roving and teaching us how to "braid roving."  Wow, many years have passed since then.  I have also been helped by Spinolution and Schacht.  We are a dealer for both!  We carry Spinolution Pollywog (Baby), Echo (Big Sister), and Maach III (Mama).  The ease of these wheels and looms make them the best on the market.  They are the most intuitive and user friendly ones available. The wheel has only 1 band for tension and all sorts of brilliant magnetic fixes and the loom has the best tension knobs on the market...no slipping and unwinding of the work!  Once we received approval from those 2 dealers, things really began falling into place.  We added 4H to our associates and have requested a Fiber Arts category be included in the Bishop, Tri-County Fair.  The feedback was positive, so we are hopeful.  Marketing, ordering, receiving, returning, shipping, mailing, packaging, on and on...part of the biz.  Every now and then a break to get our hands back into the fiber is well needed. Latest project has been spinning thick and thin for a blanket.  We hope you enjoy the photos and we'll keep you posted!
