There is a wonderful little shop in Lynhurst, Ontario, called The Green Gecko.  The owners, Terri Dawson and her husband, Peter, travel in the winter months to scope out unique one-of-a-kind items for us to purchase in their shop.  While they are away, Terri's mother, Rosemary, fills in keeping things going during the shop's winter hours, 10a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Satuarday.  This leaves Rosemary with time on Mondays to join us in Lansdowne and fill us in on Terri's adventures.

Recently, Terri was invited to visit a small silk production site in a little rural village in Thialand.  What she saw is absolutely amazing.  Check it out.  Visit her blog THE GREEN GECKO to read about her adventures and view her fantastic photos and videos to find out what Terri learned about small scale silk production.  Then, the next time you are using those lustrous silk threads and yarns in your hooking, think about how those fibres came to be.

So glad you enjoyed my story about my visit to the silk village. It was a wonderful experience for me. I've now been browsing your website and am amazed at all the beautiful work! I would love to meet any of you in person, please stop by the Green Gecko and say hi! :)
