Because I love you @weavingsouthwest , and because I value my day job, I stamped 200 boxes today! Hooray #churroclub ! Hooray to building up local fiber traditions, from the churro ranchers to the artists who use the wool!! ・・・
Our wonderful @kimberly.hamill.weaving posted this yesterday. It is a little reminder to me of how much love (and work) goes into each package we send out our door. From the dyeing (mixing, weighing, stirring, fire stoking, lifting and dunking, color deciding, cooling), rinsing, straightening, drying, reskeining, twisting, labeling, stamping, writing, editing, printing, cutting, paper ripping, packing and label printing... all the way to the loading and delivering of packages to the Arroyo Seco Post Office, where the wonderful employees there (@minatank) greet us with slightly raised eyebrows and smiles, as we haul in arm loads of packages to their little space. Then comes the scanning, sorting and everything else they do to get these boxes safely delivered to their new homes scattered throughout the world.
It's truly amazing when you start to think about it. We hope that when our customers open their box, they can feel the love and energy we all put into each package and each skein of yarn. 😊 (And this is just part of the process... not to mention the sheep, ranchers, spinners! 😄) #handdyed #riograndeyarns
