We loan because...
we want to partner with women who are working with textiles to help to bring their families out of poverty.

About us
We are fiber enthusiasts who spin, weave, needle felt, knit, crochet, quilt, rug-hook, make jewelry, create baskets, dye fiber, and enjoy all things fiber-related. We gather each September on the seacoast of Maine for five days of classes, shopping, crafting, and relaxing.
