Welcome, come right in!

Blueball Mountain Spindle & Needleworks, the Yarn and Fiber Shop in Historic Downtown Elizabethtown KY, has become the focus of the activities of All One Farms. The Farm, itself is still where the Sheep are raised, Gardens are kept and large dyeing and processing takes place. We continue to live simply, still seek to be self sustaining and remain conscious of our role in the universe. Every day is an adventure and it doesn't always take me where I plan. Come journey with me and share my experiences as I continue evolving my dream. Email me at luna.headhearthands@gmail.com.

Fiber, Fiber, Fiber! In Stock! No waiting!

Does your breath catch at the thought of fiber goodness? Filled with color and lushness, warmth, sheen and beauty? Well, fiber addicts, here is your fix!

Now available for you is the full line of

ASHLAND BAY MERINO TOP in over 50 colors and blends!

If you love fiber you know that there are few things more gorgeous than fine merino top alone and blended with SILK, BAMBOO, AND TENCIL and its all here available also in SUPERWASH and in special sock and lace blends some containing nylon for the discerning sock yarn knitters out there. And if you like to dye your own, all manner of ecru blanks are here for you too. I've selected a nice rounded group of blank yarns in several weights and plys and fiber blends to thrill and tempt your creative juices.

And yet there is more! Every week will bring more temptation: As i get my inventory system set up, i will be ordering more and more from various sources both large and small. Things will change regularly.

And did I mention price? The prices will be amazingly affordable. It is my goal to make your addiction possible by bringing you the best that I can find at the best prices that I can negotiate from the suppliers. I have and will be seeking arrangements with smaller suppliers of wool and yarns that are unique and local. I intend to be not only competitive but superior in setting price points that cannot be beaten for the highest quality available.

Hear Ye! HEAR YE! Open for Business!

Over the last several months I have been busy doing the background work to open Blueball Mountan Spindle and Needleworks formally to the world. The front room of the farm house is ready and hours set. The cottage which will be used for lessons and as my personal studio are almost done. I have researched many suppliers of wool products and equipment to add to my own hand raised Shetland fleeces, rovings and handspun yarns.

I have decided to start by carrying the fiber equipment that I know and love the most. Ashford and Schacht Wheels and Looms and Carders and all manner of accessories for the new and serious fiber workers among us. Models of the complete line of Ashford products are set up and on display. The Traveler, Joy, and Country Spinner are on the floor and a replacement Traditional (sold the first one in one day) is on the way along with a rigid heddle loom and stand, drum and hand carders, a gorgeous charka, various drop spindles and takli turkish spindle. Of course, Ashford's full line of looms and fiber are also available and will be on display as space permits.

And there's more! The Schacht floor models will be here soon! More on those soon. I am also looking into dealer arrangements with several other major wheel and loom supplier's so stay tuned for updates as deals are finalized.

Next up: Fiber! Fiber! and more Fiber!

Life is Good

Well, here I am. It feels lie a long time since I've checked in here. it has been a very busy year so far. After a year an a half my legal battle with my ex has come to settlement and have returned to a place of peace in my life. It has been quite a journey to where I am now. As many of you know, I left a very comfortable NJ suburban life to live my dream life on the farm. My goal of living sustainably through what I can produce and is ever closeer as i begin the fiber business in earnest...beginning NOW. I am thankful to friends and family who stood by me and those new friends who have sustained me along the way. Thank you especially to dear sweet Alan who is The Best Man on Earth and to my sons, Will and David, who are my greatest and dearest creation. I am so proud of them and who they are becoming. Their love and support has been a blessing.
