Site Access from iPhone

I tried access from my Android phone, T-Mobile,  from Burlington this morning and it worked OK over the air By over the air I mean not connected through a local wifi. Few people were at work this morning so I’ll check next week with iPhone users to see if they can access the site.

One thing I forgot to ask was who is your wireless carrier – eg AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile or other.

When logged in and you select the site you’ll notice the top bar remains active and you can add a new post without returning t the Dashboard



Thanks to Ted’s informative talk about our website, I’m running a test and it seems to be working.

As we discussed Dye Day, several people asked what color the umbillicaria lichen dye produced.

Well—seeing is believing.

Mother of All Farmers Markets

New England’s best Farmers Market (according to Yankee Magazine) happens in Coventry Connecticut, at the Nathan Hale Homestead. The Coventry Farmers Market usually fields fifty to seventy vendors, from vegetables (imagine!) to meat, fish, baked goods, sandwiches, soups, flowers, and more.

The kicker to this farmers market is their event schedule, which has yet to be published for 2017. The prime event for us usually occurs toward the end of September – the Fiber Fest. In addition to the regular vendors, twenty or so fiber people come in selling everything from sheep and alpaca roving, yarn, knitted goods, woven goods, and more.

Please keep an eye out for the Fiber Fest to show up on their events schedule and take a day trip to mid-Connecticut. I think you’ll like it.
