The internet can be a wonderful place, and most days it keeps me company as I go about my work. This is what I've been listening to and reading lately.
All in the Family . . . it's encouraging to note that a few of these stories are about family businesses.
~ Mulga Springs - the story of an Australian sheep farm run by women. To keep the farm in the family, the women had to take over.
~ WEBS, a family business, turned 40. Watch this anniversary video and learn about the history of America's Yarn Store.
~ Brown Sheep Company is another family business, and you can read their story here.
~ The BBC has collected some of their knitting-related stories on one page. Give a listen.
~ Finally, the Danes have a reality show about knitting. Can you believe it? I don't understand a word of Danish, but I'm mesmerized by this show.
