Our WNC Fibershed, roughly within a 100 mile radius of Asheville, NC, encompasses the rural mountainous region of Western North Carolina, parts of East Tennessee, and Upstate South Carolina. Our region of Appalachia has a deeply rooted history in handcraft and textiles, but also in economic struggle and resilience.
Who We Are
We are a thriving community of farmers, fiber artists, suppliers, designers and sewists, educators, students, and small scale fiber mills dedicated to enhancing the lives of those making a living in fiber industries.
What We Do
We support and sustain the regional fiber and textile arts economy and professions in the blue ridge mountains and through collaborations, education and innovation.
