Fine yarns, gifts, wine, social crafting, Austin, Dripping Springs – The Sated Sheep

One of my newest obsessions is crochet. Thanks to my daughter’s influence, I was bitten by the yarn bug last January and have been hookin’ ever since 😉  In my search for a wider selection of yarns and a more unique color pallet than I could find at the local Wal-Mart, I came across The Sated Sheep in Dripping Springs, TX.  Click here to visit their beautiful website where you can purchase specialty yarns, notions and gifts.  I was not only impressed with their “Herd” providing a wide selection of eco-sensitive yarns but also with their brick and mortar concept of a gathering place for classes, socializing and community.  What a lovely concept!  I wish them great success.

If you find yourself in their area and decide to drop by for a visit, let us know by posting a pic to @totallytexasgifts on Instagram or Facebook!

Allison and her husband Ray are both Clinical Psychologists. Ray doesn’t knit but he finds it fascinating that Allison does. She learned to knit while her son attended the Waldorf School 23 years ago. He didn’t learn to knit, but with much trial and error, she did. She calls herself an imprecise knitter and loves every second of it! You can find them at the shop in Dripping Springs, where she has lived for 26 years.“*

Totally Texas Stories

“Story based retail” may sound like a catch phrase but it is the new normal for merchandisers large and small. Today’s shoppers are more keenly aware of the impact of their dollars on the community around them. They want to know the story behind maker and seller, as well as the community where they work. And who has better stories than Texans?

Using the power of social media, is here to help amplify the stories of Texas makers & merchandisers to reach the ears & eyes of locals & tourists alike to encourage and support the ‘Buy Local’ mentality.

But I need your help to build our audience by following & sharing this WordPress blog, as well as like and share on Facebook, Instagram & Google. I want to spread our stories far and wide.

And share your Totally Texas stories with me, recommend an artist, maker, brewer, shop or event to be featured. I look forward to hearing from you.
