Local Cloth is committed to helping local farmers, artists, small scale textile processors and producers grow, which is why we developed the Professional Add On Membership. These fiber artists and farmers invite you check out their websites, purchase their products and share with your friends.
Shopping local is important; it helps create prosperous small businesses, its better for the environment, and your money is cycled back into the local economy. Support the WNC fiber community by choosing one of these entrepreneurs .
