Welcome to Storybook Fibers...
I had the good fortune and blessing of hearing many fairytales when I was just a wee one... years later a thought came to me - that I would like to try to spin on a spinning wheel, and I wondered if any were still being made for purchase. Soon after, I happened into spinning in a very natural order of events, and I am so grateful for the chance to get to spin yarn...

thank you
Spin happily ever after...

CHILDREN IN COMMON:
FOR THOSE OF YOU WONDERING ABOUT THE CHILDREN IN COMMOM CHARITY AND DONATION THERE HAVE RECENTLY BEEN SOME BIG CHANGES:

REGRETFULLY, THEY ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING DONATIONS OF KNITTING SUPPLIES AND HANDKNIT SOCKS AT THIS TIME, AS THE ADOPTION POLICIES FROM THE COUNTRY OVERSEAS HAVE CHANGED WITH REGARDS FOR U.S. ADOPTIONS RESULTING IN LESS ADOPTIONS FOR U.S. CITIZENS... THIS IS HOW ALL THE HANDKNIT GOODIES AND SUPPLIES GOT OVERSEAS, BY BEING CARRIED AS LUGGAGE...
THEREFORE WE WILL NOT BE MAKING A CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION FROM EACH UKRAINA YARN ORDER AS WAS PREVIOUSLY DONE.

THE CHARITY IS ACCEPTING MONETARY DONATIONS WHICH I UNDERSTAND WILL MOSTLY GO TO HELP THE TRANSITION LIVING PROGRAM THEY HAVE ON SITE AT SOME OF THE ORPHANAGES - APARTMENTS AND A PROGRAM TO HELP SOME OF THE OLDER CHILDREN LEARN LIVING ON THEIR OWN FOR WHEN THEY ARE RELEASED - THIS WILL HELP THEM HAVE A BETTER CHANCE AT SUCCESSFUL LIFE ON THEIR OWN.
THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR INTEREST AND HELP WITH CHILDREN IN COMMON.

*Just a note to the super kind people here on Etsy who have given me encouragement to keep spinning and giving it a whorl... I appreciate all your kind words more than you'll ever know.

Thank you,
Kristine
