If you need 3# picked items re weighed / bagged for varying striped or blending combinations,  you're encouraged to be present to do so &  avoid the $2/bag for re-weighing…we have to stop machines and reweigh…it's lost production time and harder on the machines.  Our suggested alternative is to have a carding date planned with picking before lunch and re weighing and bagging during lunch so we don't have to stop MIlly while we re-weigh and you get to take your roving home the day you bring it.  We encourage potluck lunches. There's a list of our lunch offerings in the food store part of this website, so if you want to share a lunch, send us a note about what you'd like to bring and what you'd like us to bring from the foodstore and we'll have a lunch together and time to get your roving just right. We love it when patrons get to see their fiber coming off of MIlly's rollers!  We like trying new food too.
