Grace Farm Studios Handmade Holidays F-Sat December 19-20 9-5pm

It’s been awhile since we’ve hosted Handmade Holidays, but we’re pleased to do so once again.  If you missed us during this year’s Autumn Drive, we hope you’ll come out for a visit this Friday or Saturday during normal hours.   If you need us to stay open longer for you one of those nights, we can do that do if you’ll give us a holler.   We are closed Sunday.

During Handmade Holidays, you’ll find woolen goods that we make ourselves, by hand, using the fleece of our own icelandic sheep and the icelandic flock of Holly Marks, pastured in Elizabeth, Illinois.  There is handmade quality for every budget, ranging from $18 and under to $450.00.  This year, we are excited to offer Holly’s outstanding icelandic lamb roving at $3.50/oz, in a variety of unusual moorits and greys.   The last batch of  2014 raspberry jam will be available.  New this year:  I have been working on more one-of-a-kind felt wall art featuring wildlife, which I really love to do but don’t often have enough time; and some smaller things like hand-dyed, embellished silk amulet necklaces stuffed with lavender.  Mike has a cherry log bench available for $250, a “Cape Racer” sled for $250, and a marblewood skeinwinder for $50.

We’ll be in the barn.  Hope to see you!  Meanwhile check out some of the stuff you’ll find here:

Fall Raspberry Preserves

We now have fresh raspberry preserves available to order.  Enjoy our organically grown raspberries without seeds and made with a variety of alternative sweeteners.  No corn syrup, no added preservatives, coloring, or artificial flavors.  We use and highly recommend Pomona Pectin, a citrus-based pectin that is activated by calcium rather than sugar.

Our jams are made only with our own berries; when we’re sold out for the season, we are sold out!
