A Tour of the Fiber shop at Dream Come True Farm
Welcome to Pam's Fiber shop which is located here on our farm, Dream Come True at 82 Freeman Road, Oxford CT. I have had a shop open here on the farm for about 10 years now. It started in a tiny room Mike finished off in part of the garage. It wasn't long until I grew out of it. But not having the money to open up a separate building we stayed in the tiny shop. I didn't care all that much it was a place to display my yarns and hand knits. A few years back Mike and I learned dichroic glass work with a kiln. We purchased our own kiln and began creating glass pieces. Well, now I really didn't fit into the tiny finished part of the garage! So I saved every $$$$ I made through the garage shop and when I had enough I purchased the Li'l Red Barn shop (as I like to call it) It was during the summer that Mike had his hip replaced so we made the purchase and had a crew of guys come and and clear the tiny parcel at the top of the driveway, had the building delivered, (Amish made) and that was the beginning of the Li'l Red Barn shop at Dream Come True Farm. So Mike and I dove in and kept creating items along with the handspun yarn. It has now turned into quite the little gift shop. Handspun yarns, hand knit garments, goats milk soap, hand cut glass jewelry, kiln fired manipulated glass decorative pieces, wood turned pieces and more! Below is a tour of the shop. I tried to snap as many little corners, shelves nook and crannys. Enjoy your visit to The Li'l Red Barn at Dream Come True Farm and Pamsfiber. Open mostly anytime by appointment during the summer, or most Sundays 11-3. Call to make sure we are here and not off to a family function. Fall through Christmas we open more regularly, so check back often for all updates! Enjoy the rest of your summer. And remember cooler months are just around the corner, you may want to stock up on some yarn. I ship to anywhere in the world and display and sell yarns on line at www.PamsFiber.Etsy.com Classes available for spinning and more, please inquire.
