Fiber Resources

Our experience and interest in weaving goes back centuries to the days of supplying protection and warmth against the elements.  It has progressed in the hands of outstanding weavers to a high degree of skill and beauty. The possibilities are limited only by the size of one's loom and the originality and skill of the weaver. To that end, we are providing a list of resources that may be helpful to you as you develop your skills.  If you have a resource to share, we would be happy to include it on our list. Please email mesillavalleyweavers@gmail.com with your information.
