I live in a small town. While visiting a local sanctuary for abandoned animals, the tour guide (knowing I'm a crocheter), asked if I could refer her to any spinners. They had just sheared their alpacas, sheep and other yarn-producing animals and they wanted to sell the "wool" at a large discount to someone who could process it further. Our community has many artists, including a very active quilting organization; however, I personally didn't know any other yarn crafters. So I decided it was time to change that.
