This past October, I attended the New York State Fiber Festival, in Rhinebeck, NY. It was a great festival where I got to chat with many of you on this newsletter. I recorded a video there and talked about a wide range of topics from future products to some changes in my Dreaming Robots business. Watch that video here.
Next weekend (November 4-5) I will be at the Fiber Festival of New England, which is held at the Big E fairgrounds in Springfield, MA. If you’re around make sure you stop by my booth and say hello.
EEW Cone Winder Update
I released a new video about the EEW Cone Winder here. The first container of them is arriving at the Boston port very soon and I’m working on getting them to my warehouse. I will be shipping them to Kickstarter backers soon. After that, I’ll need to wait for another container to fill my online store. Currently the shipping company is estimating the container with these will arrive in mid-December, but they have missed their delivery date on all recent containers so I am going to estimate these probably arrive until January, and I will open up my store orders and start shipping them as soon as I get them.
EEW Lazy Kate Release Voting
Last month we had a poll about the EEW Lazy Kate and I got a lot of useful feedback from people. Thanks for your help! Below are the results of the poll. The reason I had this poll was because it wasn’t clear to me which of these two options to do. Based on this feedback I’ll release the new Lazy Kate in my store when it’s ready with a discounted price for two weeks.
These will arrive with the second EEW Cone Winder container so I’m estimated these will ship to you in January. As soon as they get to my warehouse I’ll start accepting orders, and then start shipping immediately. I’ll keep everyone updated if there are any changes.
Below are estimates and the dates may change.
- EEW Cone Winder – January 2024
- EEW Lazy Kate – January 2024
- EEW 6.1 – Second Quarter 2024
I don’t accept pre-orders in my store, but when I get a batch of products there should be enough for everyone.
