The Ox Cart Woman


I’m thinking that “The Ox Cart Man,” a 1979 children’s book written by Donald Hall and illustrated by Barbara Cooney, may be the most appealing business model I’ve considered; except in my imagination, the ox cart would be an online post shared on facebook, of my fiber art for sale… The post would carry my work along, across the miles, so it could be shared more broadly.


I envision that after posting a collection (batts, yarns, scarves, cards, tea cozies, book marks, wall hangings and other things) for sale, I could return to my basically-18th century mindset… hunker down for the winter at home and in the studio, til it seems time to load up the ox cart again.



Sweet vision.
