Winter Vacation

Happy Holidays! We will be taking next week off to spend time with friends and family. You can place orders like usual on the website and we'll be checking our email in case you have any questions but we won't be shipping orders until after the new year. We hope that you are able to take time off to celebrate the holidays as well!

Craft Lit

The Unique Sheep is sponsoring the pod cast Craft Lit for the month of December! The first episode of the month went live today and includes an interview with me. If you haven't discovered Craft Lit yet, check it out. Its a wonderful free podcast that combines two of my biggest loves- knitting/crafting and reading. The host is an award winning high school and college teacher so she knows her stuff and she shares bits of literary trivia and history to put the books into context as you listen. Previous books include classics such as Dracula, The Scarlet Letter, Pride and Prejudice and A Tale of Two cities. The current book is Jane Eyre. Each podcast episode includes a bit of chat about knitting/crafting/etc, background on the current reading and a chapter or two from the book. The books are all wonderfully read and the information that Heather shares is interesting and helpful. It is by far my favorite podcast. So check it out, listen to my interview (which I hope is good- I haven't had the courage to listen to it yet. Its so weird to hear myself recorded) and enjoy!

Website Redesign

As we prepare for the new year we have decided that its time for a new website. The Unique Sheep has outgrown the little site that I created with bits of twine and newsprint years ago and its time for someone who really knows what he or she is doing to give her a face lift. Well, more than just a face lift, really, as its the bones of the site that need the most work.

We'd like to hear what changes you'd like to made. We are already planning to re-do the way the photos are managed to make them consistent in size and quality, add a customer account option so you can log in and check the status of your order, past orders and saved shopping carts and make the website work on tablets and phones. You can click here for a list of things that we will be working on. What else should we add to our wish list??
