What is Fibers?

Fibers is something that makes up and unifies everything. It is the element that connects people with nature by helping us exist in our environment. Fibers are everywhere… take a look around…it is the thread that composes our clothing, the strands in our hair, the grain in wood, and even the filaments in vegetable tissue. Fibers also unifies communities. The goal of this blog is to unify people through fiber and stimulate public dialogue by providing (posting) a wide range of images and commentary about fiber-related artists, designers, craftspeople, events, happenings, etc.  We started our relationship with fiber just moments after birth by being wrapped in some form of a blanket. It’s time for you and your blanket to reunite!
