Getting so much accomplished in our January meeting 👊🏻 A simple mission statement for a simple mission: connecting our local makers to our local sources. We have a directory on our website for local sources we have so far -- farms, dyers, and mills. Do you know of more?? We would LOVE to hear them! Tag your favorite local indie dyer, farm or mill below 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 Want to join LA Fibershed? Email lafibershed at gmail for a membership application.
Repost from @fibershed_! "Curious about the role of sustainability in the "fabrics of our cities?" Taylor Stitch is hosting a community event around this theme, and Fibershed's Materials Manager Krystle Moody will be joining the panel discussion and Q&A -- it's a great opportunity to learn more about Climate Beneficial Wool and how materials collaborations can connect urban and rural communities.
The event takes place tomorrow night in Los Angeles and is free to attend" -- learn more and RSVP by the link in profile!!!
@fibershed_ has created a KAL inspired by the unique connection between producer and maker, and we're so excited to join in! This stunning shawl pattern was created by @emilycunetto to work with any gauge, any yarn, so you can choose from any one of our local fiber producers or indie dyers in the LA area and this shawl will show them off beautifully. The link to the shawl pattern is in our profile, and a directory of local fibers and indie dyers is now on our website, lafibershed.com! Go check it out! Tag your projects with #fibershedkal AND #lafibershedkal so we can see all the beautiful things Los Angeles can create!
