What kinds of fibre projects are you hoping to take on this year?
We are ever-working to assemble a series of Workshops, Guilds along with online tutorials so you can custom choose where you get support for your own learning adventure.
It is always important for us to both foster a community of fellow makers and provide technical assistance- from our homes to yours!
Here are a few links that will help you get going…
