A Holiday Treat from YWP!

Hello Spinners, Weavers & Knitters,

I thought you might enjoy this month's The Voice, the digital magazine of Young Writers Project. Great writing, sound, images and video from young writers. We are happy to say that in the last few months we've started including youths outside VT & NH as we begin accepting youths from elsewhere. (So, if you know some kids, feel free to pass along the link to our site and have them sign up to write! youngwritersproject.org)

Enjoy and happy holidays! -- geoff

Guidelines and Ad Tips

Guidelines

This site offers free advertisements for anyone wanting to sell -- or find -- wool-related items from spinning wheels to fibers, from carders to books, from looms to animals. Those posting the ads are individuals or very small businesses. The site is run by volunteers so please be patient and kind. PLEASE remove your ad when you have sold your item, thanks! In exchange for these kindnesses, we encourage you to donate to our preferred charity, Young Writers Project, which is doing amazing things with young people. Thank you!

OUR AD GUIDELINES:

  • You must be an individual or a small seller,
  • You are responsible for being honest and forthright in what you are selling,
  • It is your responsibility to ensure safe delivery of products you are selling and sharing,
  • We are not responsible for any misrepresentations but ask that if you have a problem, alert us, WITH the link to the offending advertisement/community member,
  • If anyone violates our basic honesty code, we will make sure the ad is unpublished and the user is blocked and contacted.
  • PLEASE DELETE YOUR AD WHEN IT HAS BEEN TAKEN CARE OF! Do this as a favor to the community: nothing can be more frustrating to someone than to find an ad, follow up and find out that it is long gone. So when you sell, please come back and DELETE the ad. THANK  YOU!

Farewell...

Good morning all. As the snow gently falls, (more to come, which promises not to be so gentle in the night tonight)... I am reminded of the quiet and peace of winter, and the promise of Christmas and how I have loved the preparation coming up to this holiday in our family for all of my life. The baking, the fragrance of the tree and the cookies, the decorating, and the pondering of what gifts  would please my family, how we can do for others, etc has been a pleasant and important part of my life.. Christmas has changed as I have grown up, and now I focus on my grandson Jim, and on doing for others who are less fortunate, and on the stories and traditions that are important to keep within our little family.

Thanksgiving 2014

It all seemed simple enough: A dip in the ocean at dawn, on Thanksgiving morn. It was Plymouth, Mass, though not a single Puritan nor Wampanoags was in sight.

It was 28 degrees. It was snowing. And blowing. And the waves were crashing.

My youngest daughter was game. My other children were not. Nor was my wife. Nor were any of the other 24 family members in the house. None was up for that matter.

So we went. Down the 129 steps to the beach, careful not to slip on the ice-crunch steps or touch the railing caked with half-inch crusted snow.
