Hi everyone! Greetings from Minneapolis!

Debra travels to Nepal to work with the weavers and stays at the lovely Ting Tea House. Their garden is a quiet oasis amidst the chaos that is Kathmandu.

The throws are carefully ironed in Nepal before being packaged and shipped to us. Who said ironing is women's work?

Always a good sign!

The hotel in Kathmandu serves a European-style breakfast with local fruits, Himalayan honey, herbs from their kitchen garden and bread they bake every morning. A fine way to start a workday in Nepal.

A talisman at the door of our weaver brings good luck.

OUR SONG

One morning as I sat working at my desk a curious bird tapped insistently at my window.  It was a bright little bird - A Finch.  What did he want?  Later that day, unexpectedly, our first-ever shipment of woolen treasures arrived from a far-away land.  And, so begins the story of Goldfinch.
