Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits. The big change you will see is that the Native American blankets, dance shawls and the Winona Camo catagories are smaller. As part of my retirement process, I sold my two Passap E8000's that were used to knit these products.  I still have Winona camo fabric which I will use to make some hats and put up as they are sewn.  Also my plans are to knit the Winona camo fabric on my smaller E6000 knitting machines and after getting approval for the fabric from Bob Fratzke and his son, will do some custom orders.  I will also redesign the Native American blankets for the smaller machine. Thanks for your patience.

Have a Great Day, Sharon
