Here at The Shepherdess we are busy preparing for Shop Hop 2013 (link to official site click here.)  We are filled with excitement as we put the finishing touches on our featured pattern and we hope you are going to love this one!   The yarn is ‘oh so yummy’…. I’d love to tell you all about it…but you’ll have to wait. This is our third year participating in the shop hop and we hope this will be the best one yet.  Plan to spend some time here.

You’ll find The Shepherdess in quaint downtown Anoka, filled with old world charm. Walking into our shop is like stepping into the past. From the tin ceiling and creaky wood floor to the natural fiber yarns, spinning wheels and friendly service, we are all about good, old fashioned quality. If you like wool, cotton, alpaca and silk yarn you’ll love it here. We have lots of samples to inspire you and a cozy lounge to browse our pattern and book collection. Besides the wonderful yarns, we also specialize in spinning fibers, wheels and looms.  We teach knitting, crochet, spinning and weaving classes and host regular gatherings for knitters, weavers and hand spinners.

While you’re here, be sure to try our line of natural skin care and cleaning products all made right in our store filling the air with aromatherapy and filling our guests with a sense of well being. Almost every day someone says, ” this feels like home, I don’t want to leave”.   We’ll be waiting to see you soon,
-Kathy, Karen, Winnie, Deborah, Jennifer, Rachel, Mariah, Kate M. and Kathryn
