The Spinner's, Knitters, and Weaver's
Winter Housecleaning Pages
All new ADS are now at the new site:
How are we doing?
We've had 1100 hits on the site in the past few days, and we already have 200, approximately, new users who have signed in as authenticated (registered) users. There is nothing to fear from signing in as a registered user. I will never share that information, and I am the only one who sees the information. So please go there and sign up if you'd like to place ads. You can ad photos of your items as well.
Check us out at http://www.kbbspin.org. The best part is that you can upload your own ads and take them down when you're ready, and you can include photos of the items!
What do you think of the new set up? WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW! EMAIL US!~
1/8 Exciting news! I am going to be changing the look, format, and functioning of these pages, as well as the url (to be easier). The new url will be something simple to remember. This will involve moving the pages to a different server in order to make the pages easier to use. It also includes about $180.00 (was slightly less than I thought) to purchase 2 years of server space.
Take a look! WWW. KBBSPIN.ORG
YOU HAVE DONATED ENOUGH TO COVER THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF EXPENSES! Thank you. There is a bit over, so we will make sure to send the extra to the Vermont Suzuki Violins and Young Writer's Project ). You all have been extremely generous to me. My deepest thanks. It only took a few days to get these server costs covered. Wow. You are all amazing. Anyone who wants to contribute, can do so at PayPal, KBruce@together.net, or to me at :

On May 1, the pages will switch their donations to the Young Writer's Project, a new and worthy Vermont non-profit that is devoted to teaching young people to hone their writing skills. I realize that some of you have been using our pages for so long... some get up and check the pages first thing every morning,... I am astounded. When we make the change, I will also be able to see how many people check and use the pages, whereas now I can only guess at how many good users we have: ) Keep up the good work. There has been a concern that the pages will be changing in flavor, and one reader was concerned that the pages will change in a negative way. Not to worry. I will keep the same flavor and personality...I'll still be the one doing the pages, as usual, ...so it should be fairly similar in personality and goals. Just trying to look a little nicer, and work a little easier. Right now, I'm using Dreamweaver, and I will be changing over to a different software that will be easier for me, hopefully, and a bit more robust. Enjoy your families and the holidays, and blessings on you all. THANK YOU!!! Peace. Kathleen

We happily provide people with connections that are valuable to them. We take special pleasure in being able to volunteer our time and effort with the specific intent of providing spinners and weavers with a place to form connections which may encourage all involved to share used spinning and weaving equipment via the WWW, (i.e., the Housecleaning pages.) We weave people together!
