New proud owner of The Golden Fleece is Gunilla Leavitt, perhaps better known as the Knitting Doctor in several different yarn stores across the Bay Area (most notably at Knitting Arts in Saratoga and Green Planet Yarn in Campbell). Is now selling my Mackerilla Brand bags! I just unloaded a big pile of them to her. From Storage containers  and doodad bags to large oversized Stash bags to Backpacks!

The Golden Fleece is located at 317 Potrero St. Santa Cruz CA. Just across River street from the Complex where Cost plus, Ross, Office Max and Pet Smart reside!!!

Cruzers and storage containers


3 weeks til Stitches West show! Yikes! I hope I have enough bags. I think I should have a fair amount of backpack Cruzers. Also making as many large storage containers. Knitters love them for their yarn stash!
