The Tinsmith’s Wife loves fiber, cats, and coffee….

We encourage you to bring your current project and join us for a morning or an afternoon. There are several comfy spots to sit (next to a cat or two), and there is always laughter and inspiration. There are also great antique shops, yummy places to eat, and a sense of stepping back in time, just outside our doors.

In a nutshell – we have a lot of great stuff! The journey is walking through the rooms of our amazing historic building and coming across another gem of luscious inspiration.
